    I'd imagine they would be available, but heavens know what they would cost, a Klondike for sure. I would have thought a quality retrim would be a lot less dosh than a new pair of seats and a good alternative to buying second hand. Try ringing your local dealer and ask them.

    If you phone the dealer, prepare to choke on your own tongue when they give you the price. I'd expect in the region of 1200 for a pair of heated recaros.

    Please let us know.

    I'd imagine they'd be very, very, very expensive from the dealership.

    You can buy just the leather recaro covers from audi to retrim. Would cost less than whole seat. Have been keeping an eye out for alacantra items for mine on ebay as they come up time to time.

    I think you will fnd them to be in the region of 1500 EACH new from dealer!

    If yours are worn, get them recovred. Stick some new Pole Positions in, and save 60kg in the process.

    it does beg the question surely you must know it will cost an arm and a leg to buy what what you want brand new from the dealers. Surely you are not that naive ?
    Which actuallly leads me to my question , your driving an S3 with that sort of money to splash out on something like that ? oh sorry did i hear you right - slightly worn seats !

    This just goes to show how a standard S3 with as many optional extras as possible is the best you can buy - forget paying permiums for lowered/'souped' cars - that's what you need to primarily be looking at when purchasing a car.

    yer dude those are gonna cost some serious dosh, think about it genuine recaro leather electric heated seats, i can see the pound signs spinning in front of my eyes even as i type this lol

    i wouldnt have a clue what they cost, but simch's reply saying 1500 notes each wouldnt surprise me in the slightest, saw a pair of black leather recaros not heated or electric on ebay go for 900 and they wernt exactly perfect!!

    if i had that kind of money i could think of far better uses for it
