    They all have some leather on them....some are full leather and others are part leather/part alcantara, as per my pic below - both OEM items.

    Pretty sure there are some that have clothed (non-leather) Recaros. Saw one S3 on sale in my country with them, I'm not sure whether they are OEM or have been swapped from some other car (if there is a model that is easily swappable with the A3/S3 at all?), but here are some pics:

    Unfortunately I cannot help the original poster. Sorry for the offtopic.

    There were some very rare full cloth Recaros available on the S3 and they were only available in grey, hence the question

    Do you have a pic of them at all??

    If you have a look at the below on page 8, it has info on there of the colour and options that were available for the seats on release.

    Yes they are leather, I believe they are called, platinum grey, but I am not sure that is correct, they are date stamped 2001 if that helps. Many thanks

    Cloth seats were a no cost option from new, as S3 spec brings leather Recaro's as standard. I've only ever see one car for sale with factory cloth Recaro's, I guess it wouldn't really help values when prospective buyers are expecting leather.
