    help

    will s3 leather interior and door cards fit my car. the cars are the same model and can the electrics and heated seat bit be wired up to work easily?
    people who have never found love should buy an audi 1.8 turbo.

    Yes mate, have them fitted in my A3, dropped straight in just needs a bit of wiring for the heaters and electrics.

    Out of interest Jay do they bolt straight onto the existing runners?

    I was either going to go for S3 Seats or get my Sports seats retrimmed....

    Yes mate they bolt straight in, less than 15mins to fix them. Just the 2 bolts at the front then slide them out of the runners.

    Nice 1 thats what i thought Jay, the only thing that puts me off is tha your lucky to find a set under the 800 Mark.

    And for that price i could get a retrim on my sports seats i believe they're Recaro anyway arnt they?

    And also when you get the Used S3 seats the leather is cracked.

    Whereas i can get my Seatsretrimmed and they'd be brand new for the same price...

    What you think?

    Depends what your looking for really

    Im always of the belife of why build something or make something you can buy done? Unless you particularly want a different style of material or design used

    Alot of the 'cracked' leather on ebay isnt that bad really, with a good feed it comes up wonders

    Hmm id be prepared to pay 500 for the Seats that'd be fine!

    What colour do you think best suits a Silver A3?

    I like the Black and blue ones personally.

    A retrim would set me back at least 800 any-way..

    I'll have to keep and eye out.

    Just out of interest what seat covers you got?
    I have a snap on one and it really doesn't fit the seat, I'm hoping to have a word with recaro at Autosports show to see if they can help me?

    i would definately go for new seats rather than re-trim your seats!
    Yours aint recaro and if you sit in a recaro ull notice the dirrerence! i have the facelift seats(same as mk4 golf recaros) and they are sooo much better! i couldnt bear to have my old sport seats again lol.

    FYI mk4 golf seats will fit straight in too so could look for some recaros, usually go for cheaper than s3 seats to.
