    Re-trimming seats with leather/alcantara

    OK people really important question here, don’t let me down. I am refitting my A3 sport interior, but not before I have it retrimmed in leather and/or alcantara. The question is what colour choice(s) do I go for?

    What I know for sure is that the main body of it is going to be black leather, doors, armrest, and headrests. I want to colour contrast the centre sections of the seats (bum and back rests) and possibly use a different material like alcantara. I am thinking of just going a few shades lighter.

    Then there is the stitch detail, it can be matching or colour contrasting, they can also stitch the Audi 4 rings logo, I was thinking of this on the headrests, but concerned it will look a bit too max power.

    What do you think?


    Here is the company I am going to use, anyone got any info on them, good, bad or indifferent?

    What colour is the body of your car? I would go for something that complements the body colour if not a crap colour like that mettalic wizz colour.

    I think embossed logo's look better than embroidery too, if they can do that. The four rings embossed in would look cool.

    The car is Ebony Black.

    Embossed logos would be cool, good idea, I'll ask.

    Theay also do a carbon fibre embossed leather, which is not anywhere near as bad as it sounds, perforated leather is also available.

    Yeah, Perforated leather looks good. With the black exterior i would (personally) go for black bolsters with black/ dark grey alacantra centres with silver stiching - Class, not overstated.
