[V8] What was I thinking!

I suppose I could do a seat transplant, and that isn't a terrible idea.
What I would need to do, I think, is to find a set of sport seats, or
perhaps spring for a pair of Recaro's.  One of the problems with my wife's
car for me is that regardless of how I position the seat, I cannot sit as
low in the car as I would like.  I am 5" 9 1/2" on an exceptionally tall
day, and not terribly long waisted, but the seat in its lowest setting is
just wrong for me.  Despite the tilt wheel, I cannot seem to find a really
good hand/wheel position either, but if the seats were lower, all might fit
into place.  

But if I was going to change some seats around, and if, mind you that is
spelled with a capital "IF"...I was going to spring for some Recaro heated
(gotta be heated) seats, I would be much happier doing it for a V8, than for
any C4.

Not crazy.  My 200TQ (with sport seats) was a lot more comfortable
on an 18 hour drive than my 100 S (with comfort seats) is. Maybe
putting 200 seats into the C4 would transform it.
