I like the look and the support of the leatherette seats I have, but I'm
concerned about how they'll 'breathe' in warn and hot weather.....

Sport seats only came in cloth on the 1.8T.....cloth or leather on 
the 2.8.   Leatherette was the standard seat in the 1.8T.  However, I 
found that they were very supportive and made from wonderful material
(another thing Rocky and I differ on.  He likes aged leather look..)

I found one of the better looking wheels for the B5 A4 (mine was an 
Avant) was the 5-spoke 2002/2003 sedan Sport package wheel.   Simple 
5-spoke, easy to clean, and 17x7.5.   They were fairly rare for sale 
back when I got mine (early 03) but by now they are a dime a dozen.
