Can you recommend decent seats for my new Volkswagen Golf?

Is it possible to add an Alcantara sports seat into my new Volkswagen Golf Edition-R? If so, how much would VW charge?

Reason I'm asking is that I'm finding the "Comfort" seats quite uncomfortable and after two months on the road I still cannot find a comfortable driving position. The main issue is the side supports on the seat are too far apart. As I'm fairly thin, my back tends to move side to side a lot when turning etc. no matter what position the seat is in. It's driving me mad. My old BMW had sports seats and I never had this problem. It's detracting from what is an otherwise excellent car. I cannot find any seat cushions for my back that will help me fit more snugly. It's gotten to the point where I'm willing to shell out a few hundred if necessary to get a sports seat put in.

Any help appreciated!

How do I fit three child seats in the back of my car?

Third child on the way, eldest child is in full-size booster seat, what cars will fit three across? Ford says its cars can but you need a degree in engineering to fit them. I have discussed this question with a number of car seat retailers who all lean toward a seven seater.
