Those buckets look so much better!

Seriously tempted to get mine done now too!

Buckets FTW. They make such a difference, those old seats are not worthy of the car.

Those comfort seats look uuuuugly.
previous- 205 gti, 306 gti, 309 gtiGoodwood, S3, S4 V8 avant.
Now- C5 RS6 Misano red avant. Getting close to how I want it.

For some reason I thought yours had buckets all along. Worthwhile addition

Hope you are well buddy :thumbs:

Are you on a 1.5 post a month thing Ian? You've been really quiet mate. Hope you, the family and the 205 are well.

I'm only allowed on here 1 day a month now my Audi is diesel :sekret:

Yeah I'm fine thanks, hope you are all well too. 205 passed its mot with flying colours around the time the lock down kicked in, sadly means it hasn't turned a wheel since

Do the seats need to be from a 3 door i.e. do they tilt?

Cheers

I enjoyed ADI as well as the A-road drive down to get there. And they let people still drive in with non-Audis so I could have still come down if it was still running. We've had some great car show weather this year so far, just a shame there haven't been any car shows to go to.

Mine are but if you’re ok with them not tilting - I believe you could even put RS4 seats in. The RS4 Seats will have more adjustment but no tilt. These seats fit me really well so I’m fine without all the extra adjustment.
