Well, congratulations on your purchase.
You cane to the right place I can tell you.
I don't know if there are any bolster as you specified, but I don't think
the seats have ever been much of an issue.
I quite sure there have been many pregnant women in these 'shotgun' seats
with out complaint.

As for performance upgrades....
As the old saying goes around here, go bury your wallet. Once you start it's
hard to stop.
There are still lots of bone stock s4 / s6 cars on the list, but the
modified ones... well the sky is the limit.
You can chip your car, and get very levels of very reliable and drivable
performance increases.
You can put bigger turbo's on, there is the RS2 turbo, some Garret hybrid's,
and some all out BIG turbo's
You can do full RS2 conversion, or somewhere in between.
Heck I know of a few guys who bored and stroked it :)
Then there is suspension mods, the list just keeps going and going.

You will hear words like 'Group Purchase' used around here, if your read
about one... STOP. delete the email :-)
It will only get you in deeper. But alas, I do think it's all just the
inevitable evolution of the beast.

All the above aside, they are great cars, the require special care and
attention. If you don't listen to there needs you will end up with some
troubles, but give them what they need and they will never let you down. And
wait until you try them in snow :-)
WOW, that's fun.

Enjoy your ride, and go bury that wallet.
