FYI:  the 4kq seat BOTTOM cushion is the same L/R. Dealer fiche verifies
same. I doubt the backs are twins because of the different tilt hardware
(mine is a standard VW knob on the "inside" edge of the seat. C-GT and
ur-q have the little lever on the "outside" edge of the seat, no?). BTW,
the 4kq has the same "sport"-style seats as the ur-q.

Some have said the seat pan (the metal part across the bottom of the
seat which supports the foam) has broken off of the frame, causing
sagging. When I changed my foam last weekend (164k miles) I didn't see
any cracks on mine.

hth and YMMV,
