I have ordered a 2.0 TFSI with Nappa Leather seats - dealer has offered electric front seats - how does the "easy entry" function work? Does it take a long time for the seat to drive forward to allow access? With the manual seat it is very quick to move the seat forward and the backrest towards the dashboard.

Mine has manual ones and haven't seen/tried electric ones. However I did read one road test of an Eos with electric seats and they said don't get them because they take an age to go backwards and forwards to let people into the back! If you do use the rear seats regularly they might get on your nerves, but if it's only occasionally and you just use the electrics to adjust the seat for yourself then the speed doesn't matter. However - once my seat is adjusted for me it tends to stay like that as no-one else drives it so the electric adjustment would be redundant once used at first! Bear that in mind! Expensive extra to use once!

When the dealer says they "offered electric seats" does that mean you have the option to get them, or are you already committed to them? I agree with neh321, I have manual and I never move them. My wife has an infinity G35 (not sure if they have those where you are) but it is a nice sports car with everything electric and to get to the same kind of small back seats you have to wait a very long time and it gets annoying. She admits mine may not be electric, but they are easily moved (if you need to).

True we don't use them regularly so we don't mind... just take that into account. good luck.

When my wife and I were looking over the demo at the dealer, she broke her fingernail trying to adjust the passenger seat. After that she insisted that we have power seats and that prompted us to upgrade to the "sport". We seldom use the back seat for anything but hauling stuff from Costco, so we are not inconvienced by the power movement of the seats, which in my mind is not all that slow.

I had a test drive last week and the salesman moved...

the passenger seat so fast that I thought the car had a manual passenger seat. When I asked about it, he showed me the button on the side of the seat back just under the release loop.

A slow-moving seat would not be desireable to access the back seat for a passenger trying to get out of the rain. It appears to me that VW has addressed the situation.

BTW, it looks a s if I may have my EOS within the next week.
