Hi Nick, yes that's what I have seen but the description for the carbon nappa R option says sports seats with integrated headrest which the ones in the picture are not, I have asked for clarification from the dealer as there are no cars on Auto trader with leather to compare.
Where did your description text come from - it implies there are two different leather options, but for the UK there is only one. Ive not seen a leather seat with the integrated headrest in any review pictures or videos.

The description comes from the brochure / pricelist on the VW UK website

Clearly shows a different line item for the R.

Bet they look nice!
Well worth having as it just adds that finishing touch.
You just need the Akrapovic exhaust and you will have a rare optioned beast.

Just checked my order and it does say Nappa leather pack - so I don’t know which seat I’ll get! :lol:

If they do come as your order states I think they will be similar to the leather seats in the Cupra Ateca , which are a blue leather, they look very similar to the seats that are in the Tiguan R in the blue cheque fabric.

Win/win for me - I’m expecting the standard leather seat, so if it’s the other type it’s a bonus!

Well the brochure is valid from 26th May 2021 so I think they are now offering the specific R seats in leather not just the R Line seats in lieu of them.
Guess VW are trying to cover all requests.
The R seats in leather will be nice as I have never liked cloth seats in any car.
The R leather option should have been available from the start.
If they are doing so then this will be a nice option along with the Akrapovic exhaust for those wanting to get the rare options.
Can’t see many going for the Akrapovic exhaust which will make it a very desirable option.
