[A4] Spark Control on 1.8T

My leatherette seats have good side bolstering, which made me think they
were sport seats.  It seems I'd seen seats in A4s with very little
bolstering.  Is my memory fading?

I, too, like the five-spoke wheel.  Are they 16 or 17 inch diameter?

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.
