Would like to put in different seats in the Q.
Really like the A5 sline seats. Looks like they have smaller base, anyone know if they can be done?
What upgraded seats from Audi would work?

What seats do you have at the moment? SE seats?

I had an A5 s line before I got my Q5. The seats are very similar, the seats in the Q just seem to be higher.

I would have thought that this would be a difficult mod, there are all sorts of wires under the seats for electric lumbar, seat belt warning and air bags etc.

I have the standard all leather in a 2.0T, power with heat. Would like the Silk Nappa Leather with Alcantara as seen in the S5, would think the A5 sline would be same?. Are the Sline Q seats the same look, material, feel? I know the Q seats are bigger, but I think that would just be the base frame track system.

For the Q5 are the following options: Fine Nappa leather, Alcantara /Fine Nappa Leather, Milano leather with sports seats or S-line

Audi A4, A5 and Q5 are made on the same platform
I think that the seat from S5 is not liable for the Q5, but that's just my opinion

S5 wouldn't be right, they are very rigid and very much like a bucket seat and they have "S5" embossed on them. A5 SLine would be fine and I would guess the seat itself is the same as the Q5 but the frame is definitely taller. Not sure if the A5 seat would fit onto the existing frame but you aren't going S-Line to S-Line so this may not be possible.

I would have thought it will be difficult to find s-line seats with electric and heat, even if you track down a breaker he will want serious cash for the interior. Also I'm pretty sure that the seats have airbags built into the sides so many at a breaker yard would be ripped?

Seems like a huge expense to me and it could impact the safety of your car as well as the onboard computer. You'd be better off trading in for a different car to be honest.

Btw DieselDoug is right, you can get all leather SLine seats which is what we have.

The standard seats give me back ache, I learned this from courtesy cars. Always gone with SLine, the package cost above SE is well worth it when you look at all the extra refinements you get.

Cables come separately. Under seat on left side there is a connector point.
I think it's too complicated retrofitting electric seats, need to do coding......

Good luck

I think that the replacement modules impossible

Explanation of why it is impossible, the parts are located at different places in the car

Part serial number 8K0 907 064 P replaced 01.08.2011 with 8K0 907 064 CQ



Part 8K0 907 063 D is located front the left



Part 8K0 907 064 CQ is located in the back of the right
