Many, many reports of poor workmanship and sagging / damaged leather with the TT seats, over on the TT Forum.

I wonder if the R8 Team are aware? If people aren't happy with the quality of the product on a £30k car, you can just imagine what those of us paying 3x as much will have to say about it...

They are aware of it. In the factory there is a demo room with a black R8 and worn leather already, just by getting in and out of the car! :(

How 'bout the TT side view mirrors, the dated red digital IP, tiny plastic paddle shifters, key twist starter and the joke of a sun visor.
Audi has made no secret of the fact that the R8 is a parts bin car, only it seems they plan on passing the savings on - to themselves!:mad:

but a fantastic car still.. with a grumbling allday V8 in the back and super balance and rigidity...

why did 996TT remind me on the "sun visors" :D:D

anyway, i just wanted to show these S5 seats.. they really are cool.. i will probably get some aftermarket things done to mine...

as said in earlier threads.. maybe DVB reception.. and some "lower" and sportier seats... and maybe a bigger subwoofer, as i heard the R8 B&O system has some weakness in the lower section.. but of course, there is few spaces you can place a bass speaker... i will find one ;)

Why did Audi choose for the 'cheap' TT seats? And in every S or RS car the placed the logo on the seats. But not for the R8, strange?

maybe, cause we ALL only saw pre prod cars.. we never actually saw a real car...?? they did not take that much care on quality then with actual prod cars.. so maybe we got some surprises coming at us? ;)
well I really do hope so :D

Nah... I saw production cars, none of them had it. The two cars at our importer doesn't have it either...

Give me my Recaro's of my S4, they're the best!

Yep you're right. I don't get it either.
