Mein Auto: 2012 Audi A4

Hey everyone,
First time poster. As an avid fan ( but not owner) of the current m6, have noticed that some test cars such as the ones used by road and track and car and driver have different seats than any of the ones I've seen on lots. They more resemble a one piece seat with more aggressive bolsters. Aesthetically, I think they are more beautiful though probably less comfortable than the adjustable ones I always see in person. Could anyone explain the difference, because if I hit the powerball this week, this will become an incredibly pertinent issue for me.

I think it's the Executive package, it adds both ventilation and active seats, that makes the difference. I don't know anything about non-US seats, but I do know that when you add the active seats they are less comfortable.
