    Hi all.
    Recently ordered a B9 Avant tdi 190 and choose standard seats instead of sport ones and i am having second thoughts about it!

    I always had sporty cars with sporty seats and i was wondering if some of you could tel me what the driving feeling is with the standard ones? I have a dynamic driving style so should i change?

    Suggestions? :)

    I've come from a Golf GTD to an Avant Ultra Sport, and the sport seats are much more roomy than the GTD. Not anywhere near as hugging/supportive. If you tend to chuck the car around, you'll need the sport seats as there is a bit of body roll on cornering.

    I'd switch to sport seats given the choice.

    The S-Line seats have electronic Lumbar as standard, not sure about the sport, for me this is critical for long journeys.
    My previous car was an E-Class estate, I had to have a cushion behind my lower back for long journeys.
    The A4 is miles more comfortable than the Merc, for this reason.
    The Merc had lumbar, it was a manual in-out, whereas the Audi has in-out and up-down, which means it should suit all sizes.

    Aren't they just the same seat bases though, with extra padding. I seem to remember that being stated about the A3...

    I didn't think the standard seats had the side bolsters. I might be wrong.

    Side bolsters are just extra padding covered though, unlike racing seats there isn't any frame or moulding. I doubt if there is much between the standard or the sports...

    well it seems it's too late anyway, order went through and they say i cannot make any changes which sounds very odd to me as with my Range i could change stuff till the date of production! a bit disappointed i must say.

    Cheers

    I would contact audi cs if I was you, usually you have a good few weeks to change things before the build is fixed..,
