Default Switching Seats in S5 Cabrio to A5 Seats

Hi I just bought the S5 and find the sports seats very uncomfortable. I am getting bad sciatica symptoms in my legs.

I had test driven the A5 with comfort seats and found that to be very comfortable. Anyone willing to Swap seats. I live in the Cincinnati Ohio. Any other solutions?...if nothing works I will most likely have to return the car to the dealer and take a hit on the cost. The car is just not comfortable for me. Awesome ride though. I am really torn. Thanks.

I saw there are some people out there that do car seat rebuilding. If there anyone in the Cincinnati or surround area that can do that for me? Please advice. Thanks.

Hi,

They do offer the comfort seats in the S5 Cab.

Try having a discussion with the dealer and see what they can do to swap out the car with one with the comfort seats...

I would not suggest changing them yourself if you want to keep the resale value.

The other option would be to change the drivers seat to an aftermarket seat... or just pay the dealer or a tuner shop to install the comfort seat. The cooling might not work though - not sure if it has the items needed in one with the sport seats.
