    Finally this weekend, after 6 weeks of waiting a received a big old pallet of Recaro boxes just for little old me! Christmas has come early!

    The seats are Recaro Pole Postion, in black leather and blue suede, a perfect match for the rest of the interior in my S4. They look sexy! They feel sexy! Dammit they're gorgeous, all warm and buckety to sit my little buns in! Really comfortable for fixed backs, very supportive, feels like I'm driving a race car now. Plus piece of cake to fit, once I figured out which of the million supplied nuts and bolts I needed to use where.

    Here's some pics anyway, not the best camera phone shots, but enough to make you moist!

    I managed to get a good deal at Edition38, direct from Recaro, 20% off, so I paid roughly £920 all in, that's subframes, side mounts, seats and airbag resistor kit, nearly £300 cheaper than list price. A few quid, but most definately worth it. They match a treat!

    And they weigh in at just over 7kg each, a wee bit lighter than the standard seats.

    I've heard they are surprisingly comfortable, even on long journeys. You'll have to let us know... even though there's no way i'll be getting some and keeping my ********!

    Why dont't girlfriends/wife's understand?

    My missus was actually the one who persuaded me to get them?!?! She loves bit of bucket! Should I be worried? Or just very thankful!

    Yeah, pretty damn comfy, think it's because it supports your weight very evenly over a larger surface area, not just your cheeks and a bit of your back, they have an adjustable lumber cushion behind the blue ones to get them to fit you even better.

    Seats look awesome - how much did they set you back?

    You could PM me, if you'd prefer.

    what does the subframe look like on those? does it require lots of drilling and bolting?

    subframes are designed / bought to fit the S4/RS4 so they are bolt straight on

    The subframe works and mounts in exactly the same way as the original Audi seats, very easy to fit, no modifications needed, undo the clip at the front of the frame, unscrew the 2 plastic covers at the rear of the runners and slide the seat rearwards and out.

    Adam, I may have to move my seatbelts like you have, they're a bit of a pain using them outside of the seats, are they easier to put on and take off where you have them?

    If you can, get to a show where Recaro have a stand, give em a call I guess they'd tell you. I got mine at edition38 with 20% off, a massive saving of just over 300 notes! Well worth hunting them down.

    They are so comfy it's unbelievable! I've now swapped my door cards to black and taken out my rear seats so they match the interior (or lack of ) now :cool:
    I really felt with the standard Recaros I sat on the car rather than in it, not so anymore. I really feel a part of the car now, very connected. And they still work with CG locks which really finishes them off :thumbsup:

    You'd be surprised, my mate's a good 18-19 stone, not quite 6'4" but he's big on weight training so he's broad, especially at the shoulders, and he drove with me a 500miles to the Ring and back no problem, comfiest seats ever! They do do a wide option too.
