    S3 Re-furbishments !

    so im just wondering how much refurbs would cost for 3 parts of my S3?

    1) 18" rstt wheels refurbed?

    2) car paint job detailed/ touched up?

    3) just for the sake of it ! : cream interior re-trim?

    just curious to know how much it would cost to make the car mint !

    cheers!

    well your probably looking at around 200 - 250 for the wheels,
    Id imagine anywhere between 80 - 200 for a full car detail,
    And the interior, well probably anything from 500 - 2000+

    Not cheap but would definately be worth it!
    But maybe with the interior, it could be a lot cheaper to look out for a mint 2nd hand set to come up and sell yours on...

    You won't loose the embossed Recaro if you use somebody decent...

    I had a set of Golf GTI Mk4 Recaros modified to fit my Mk3, then half leather trimmed to keep the original 'Anniversary' cloth, front and back seats done..and the Recaro logo was re-embossed onto the front seats.
    MJ Interiors did the work...they did a fine job, and the best advert for the interior is the fact that many people have commented they they didn't know the Mk3 Anniversary had a half leather option from the factory, so good is the work.

    Not cheap though...I'd bet on around 2000 for front and rears in a different colour.

    Ah, TBH Ess i wasn't sure entirely....would the Recaro be as standard or a 'version' of...i presume that this would come down to cost if it could look original

    I suppose it comes down the the quality of the stamps the trimmer is using...mine looks fine to me.

    Hi Rob,
    Thanks for the pic. Dark avus' look great.... Black wheels are a lovely contrast on a bright colour. I heard that black wheels really show the dirt though, and need to cleaned regularly.

    alloy refurb

    I had my 9 year old 16" 5 spoke of my 1.8T sport refurbed a couple of weeks ago. They were in a bit of a state but they came back with a factory finish after two days from A1 in Bilston. I wasn't cheap at 70 each but they look like new again. They do a cheaper wet coat option but I think its worth spending the extra for the powder finish.Cheers
