W123 seat swap options

I have a 1981 240D that I recently purchased.
While getting the engine to start and run consistently is my main focus at the moment, doing something about the front seats is close behind.

The driver's seat is pretty terrible. Not only is the seated position too high, but the seat is too springy. Feels like it's constantly trying to roll or throw you off of it. I'm also not a huge fan of the vinyl.
Is this normal or is there something wrong with my seats?? The interior of the car is pretty bad generally, but the driver's seat just seems fundamentally bad.

Is there another seat option that will bolt in fairly easily?

Seat bottom cushions and spring bases will interchange between W123 and W126.
Some, but not all tracks will interchange.

I haven't tried it personally, but I've read that the seats from the Audi A4 (B6) bolt up directly. You'll have to run 12V to them.
