I'm sure Recaro is the manufacturer.
I'd guess they manufacture most of Audi's seats, no?

Those sport seats look a lot like the Recaros on my 91 VW GTI 16V.   Are
they actually rebadged Recaros?

99.5 A4 1.8T

Script has nothing to do with it...it's the shape of the seats.

The sport seats have large thigh bolsters and slightly larger side bolsters,
neither of which the standard seats have.

Pictures tell a thousand words.  Here are cloth sport seats from a 2001
A4 1.8T




There are leather non-sport seats for comparison...also from a 2000 or 2001.
