    Dont fit a Mk1 TT dash, they're horrid!!.

    My other half has a TT and the instrument pod looks soooo bad considering how nice the rest of the car looks.

    As for a retrim...why not!. Look up a local seat trimmers and go and see their work. I know of a fantastic trimmers but its in Southend. They did a top job on my bug a few years ago.

    As already said, a re-trim can be expensive - but if I was doing it then MJ Interiors would get my vote - they've done some absolutely fantastic work on Audis and VWs in the past:

    http://www.mjinteriors.co.uk/

    Only problem is they're not exactly local, but when you're forking out for something like this then quality is more important than geography!!

    As for the wheels, have a look in the pics thread in the stickies section for some ideas - personally I think a noggy looks good with black or anthracite wheels
    2003 ARY A3 TQS - totally bog except for 18" Dezent Motion Blacks - Hopefully the Brembo Jr will fit these and I can start to update my sig!!

    cost wont really be an issue regarding the retrim, as its just a future plan, and something i would save up for.

    been looking for some wheels on the internet and found these, has anyone fitted them yet? of if not could someone photoshop them quickly.

    I checked for retrim on my A3. The company i was gonna use said it cost about 750-800 on front and back seats all depends on what colour i choice and the stitching. I'll try find the email i had off them, as i cant remember there name and found them on ebay. When i checked out the website looked really good quailty and had loads of pictures from all different cars they have done. I do like the RS6 alloys on 8L S3.
