Default Caravaggio seats installed

Recently purchased through forum member NIB. They were close enough price wise to the A4's to jump on. The blue stitching and logo doesn't match, but I'll live with the contrast or dye the stitches. Fat butt at 38" waist squeezes in, although 36 and below probably does better. Higher side bolster is slightly more difficult to exit with entry about the same. Seat belt is tight against the center hump, but still functions well. Overall, pleased with purchase and heavily discounted price. They sat for sale on this forum for 4-5 months. I think the colored stitching kept some away.

Seats look great! I don't see any other stitching in the interior, use this as a start?

Nice! Are they more comfortable and supportive than the standard seats? I would bet so, cause it wouldn't take much.

They look really nice. Blue stitching with the black paint, that looks alright to me.

The seats look fantastic and especially the low profile signature bagging.

Agreed. Start doing other stuff with blue stitching now.

Did you feel that? Yup.....it was the mod bug biting your ***.

The seats do look real nice. Caravaggio seats are great since they ride on the stock tracks and retain the power and memory functions. You could die the stitching but it looks good blue.

I just got 2 of these. Will they be hard to install since I have sport seats with memory?

Now you need Caravaggio to do the rest of your interior to match.
