I am building a spec for an order of an RS3. Cant decide on standard seats or the supersport. If the latter will be going for the lunar silver option. Any views whether the supersport seats are worth the extra
If they are identical to the seats in my S5 then they are well worth the money.
Best seats I have had in any car - look great, extremely comfortable and very supportive.
I will certainly be speccing them for my RS3.
Maybe a bit off topic but what is making you want to move from the S5 to the RS3? I'm interested because either could be my next choice. What's your view on the S5 in general?
I think they are ugly!! Looks like a blow up seat cushion.
That's hugely subjective, and again, its down to personal opinion, as there is no means to judge this by, in this car, other that personal opinion and expectations.The seating position is hugely important in this type of car (or it should be), and the RS3 has it wrong.
It's a RS, should have a better option than the S available.
Super Sports Seats are not low enough, not supportive enough for spirited driving, nor do they look great - I think they are starting to look a touch dated. On rather than in the car is how they feel.
I wouldn't bother with them, spend your cash on something else.
New TT seats look better (much fresher), are better positioned and give a more enjoyable driving experience because of that.
I expect the facelift will offer the buckets for those who expect a RS to have a more driver orientated and focussed seating position.

I find the driving position in the S3 and RS3 just how I want it.
Had standard s-line seats in my 8P A3 and switched them out for buckets. While the buckets looked fantastic they were too firm, I could hardly walk after a long journey. Standard seats whilst not so hugging were much more comfortable.
I have specced Supersports seats in my RS3 as I found them to be the best of both worlds.
but each to his own and all that.
