Seats are a lot like wait­ers, re­ally... the re­ally good ones, you don’t even no­tice they’re there. Hav­ing sam­pled 14 of the finest (and most tor­tur­ous) over Speed Week, I can con­firm the RS4’s are among the very best. Not love-han­dle pinch­ers like the Fi­esta ST, or with all the pli­ancy of an iron­ing board, like the 600LT, they sim­ply fit, look fan­tas­tic (in­te­grated head­rests for the win), there’s not a scrap of sweat-clogged Al­can­tara and they mas­sage and toast your tired be­hind with rel­ish. Bit like the car as a whole, which has slipped so seam­lessly into my life that I’m in dan­ger of tak­ing its all-round us­abil­ity for granted. This is a very fast car, de­signed specif­i­cally for fam­ily life, which is why I for­give its blunt­ness when you up the ante.
