Hey so I have a 2000 a4 with the grey interior. The standard leather seats are shot. The passenger is ripped and the drive is not to far after that. I found a deal on Craig's for some black s4 leather seats front and rear that would just drop right in. I was curious though how everybody would think that would look/ be acceptable. Pictures would help as well. Thanks!

Are you current seats power everything? If so then the S4 seats will drop in. If your current seats have any manual adjustments then some modifications will be needed to fit them in.

I've seen it done. It looks ok. The grey interior is very very grey. If you painted some of the trim black and did black inserts in the doors it would look better. Also a black steering wheel.

I don't have a full grey interior, but started painting the pilars black along with the center console and door mouldings to give it some contrast. Black and grey do go together okay, however a big item like seats are gonna need something else painted black to help tie them into the car so they don't look too foreign.
