Thanks N8.

Oh more gadgets!!

What are the two switches on the left?

Is the round dial on the right the electric forward and backwards adjustments?

Do the RS4 seats fold forward ?

The 2 switches on the left are the bolsters side and ones next to legs and round button is lumbar for back.

Sorry Phil, cabriolet ones do, not saloon or avant - which will be majority of the ones for sale!

I agree with the comments below, the S3 Recaros are gorgeous.. But after having a few long road trips in them my **** was numb for a while lol!

For me, i would want something that's aesthetically pleasing and comfortable.. So i'd recommend S5 seats. After sitting in them, they were a lot comfier than the S3 one's. But then again, that's from my experience.

Aren't they the same seat? Just same design as TT/R8 & RS6s buckets?

oops my bad, wrong pic.

Meant to say S5, not RS5.

I was thinking S5 seats before, but not much more of an upgrade from the S-Line seats tbh, just the bonus of full electrics, plus you'd need custom runners, and think they'd be too wide for the A3 floor plan.
