  1. At Long Last, Its arrived!

    [ QUOTE ] There was a lot of discussion on this forums about the bucket seats before the S3 came out, particularly regarding how comfortable they were on a run etc and I have to admit I wondered if I had made the right decision ordering them. However I have to say that after about 1200 miles with the car including a few reasonable runs, I dont regret it for a minute. These seats are fantastic and IMHO much better than the standard S3 seats which I tried on a demo model. Yes they are very expensive, but the lateral support is brilliant and more importantly I have no back problems with them. Incidentally i am about 6ft 2in,and fairly large framed, so any points about them not being suitable for larger people are not true. The seats have electrical heating, but no lumber support (they dont need it)and are manually operated. Yes getting people in and out the back is a bit more awkward as you have to slide the seat forward as well as tilt, but in my case thats not an issue as I rarely carry back seat passengers. All in all delighted with the car, best handling performing audi I have owned (and that includes a B7 S4 Avant!)and the most comfortable to sit in. [/ QUOTE ] Thanks for your reply,
