    Porsche Seats...

    Anyone help here? As Recaros are rare and expensive... will Porsche seats fit in an A3 easily? They are part of the VW/Audi group so I'm thinking it may be a possible fit? There are a few more sets on ebay than Audi specific seats. Edit: Apologies for posting in this forum... my mistake...
