I have the heated/ventilated seat option in my 2018 S5 SB and find it quite comfortable. You do, however, slide around more than you do in the sport seat.
It and a heated steering wheel is a must option living here on Long Island.

My wife's RDX interior is tan leather and when it gets detailed I actually use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser ó WITH VERY LIGHT PRESSURE ó to get the stains from blue jeans or other sources. Then I apply a very small amount of leather conditioner / cleaner to a cloth and treat the leather. Using the Magic Eraser correctly is a ga e changer on the RDX tan leather.
Thanks, makes sense. I like black on black interiors, so luckily I donít need to worry about blue jeans, etc but a magic eraser is a good hack. I havenít thought of that. Those things are handy/magical!

I found this video awhile back and found it the best way for me to clean perforated leather. Basically, the idea is to use a soft brush to get in the holes and a shop vac to get all the leftover solution out. I don't do this every time as it takes a lot longer than a wipe down with a microfiber cloth but every couple months i'll go ahead and use the brush. Hope it helps!
Thank you. Very useful.

I'm here in Texas and I wanted the cooled seats but wanted red leather even more. However that trading that in and the seat choices are very limited for the RS5. I don't get red but I also don't get cooled seats. Oh well. The price you pay for 90 more ponies

I have the sport seats, and the bottom bolsters dig into my fat thighs unless I pull my knees nearly together It gets quite painful after an hour on the road. I had the same issue on my A3, and fixed by adding a 1/2" spacer between the driver's seat cushion an the steel pan. Unfortunately, the S5 seat construction doesn't allow this.
I'd swap for standard seats if I could find a set.. (I suppose it might require some coding changes though.)

(Trying to get slimmer, but it's not working well.)

I am 6’4” and bought my A4 with what is called “comfort sport ventilated seats” in Canada. The width of the bolsters are not adjustable. They were the most uncomfortable seats ever after a one hour drive. I had to return the car and exchange it for a car with regular seats! Very costly and stressful experience!

I live in Texas and picked up an A5 Saturday. I tried the s5 and after 10 min in the car I was reaching for the non existent cooled seats button. I went down to the A because the seats were so much more comfortable for me and I could not notice enough of a power difference to justify the S. The regular seats are very sporty with lots of side bolstering. I’m 5’ 11 215lbs.

Congrats and good choice! The ventilated seats will serve you well for our Texas summers!
