[A4] Spark Control on 1.8T

Back on the mother-list, the 'quattro' cloth had been described as being a
jacquard cloth.  It's a somewhat coarse weave; maybe a bit 'grainy,' with
threads being very evident in the cloth.

Is that what the Jacquard Satin's like on your (your wife's) '98?

I guess my real question is whether the 'quattro' script cloth indicates the
seats are sport seats, or whether they used the 'quattro' cloth on the
non-sport seats, too.

Thanks for everyone's patience.

I've seen cloth (like the quatrro script material) like on the old 80s, 90s,
on A4s not sure what it s called.  There is also Jacquard Satin, I believe
it's called, which I have on my [now my wife's] '98 w/ sport seats.
