Default Euro Rear Seat Headrests?

I have a 2017 A3 convertible, and I read in the forums somewhere that the European back seat headrests are much less obtrusive than the ridiculously huge ones on my USA version, which actually obscure much of the rear window view. Does anyone here know where/how I can get the smaller European headrests for my car?

search the a3 forum for headrest. there is a lot of discussion. my main concern would be that the windscreen shipped with the us model doesnt notch around the low profile headrests. the clearmounts guy posted a video on his workaround.

I ordered the headrests--where can I find the video on that workaround?

Holy cow, those are pricey. Nice, but pricey.

I actually just went to a salvage yard and got the rear headrests off a 2010 A4. They were in great condition and only 50 bucks each. They pop up on ebay every now that then too.

These cost about 150 each. For $300 for the set.

For sure the A4 headrests fit on an A3. Mine we pulled from an earlier gen A4, as all of the current gen ones have the tall rear headrests. If you don't mind used, ebay typically has some good ones. If you need new ones, maybe you can get @Allroading17 to let you know where to get them.
