    Half Leather / Alcantara

    Has anyone got any pictures with the half leather / alcantara seats. Only seen them in the TT, ordered them based on how good they looked in that. Just wondering how long they last etc... Are you happy with them and just generally what they look like! Especially in the Sportback! Thanks

    Looks really nice My alcantara that I have ordered says 'perforated' and in the TT its perforated with a silver lining underneath. Looks very different. I assume I will be getting the same alcantara? In both of your pictures it looks like pure alcantara with no perforations. Am I going mad?

    No you're not, they're two separate seats. My original A3 (2003 vintage) had the same seats as those pictured (without perforations) as options. Now they don't seem to be available any longer, just the perforated ones you refer to. I've seen the latter in a TT and they do look nice.

    Had these in a 53 3 door and 05 Sportback.. very nice comfy seats. The Sportback ones did get a bit smelly for some reason! Not sure why, never had it before with any car seats and only on the 05 one!

    Thats the Alcantara i saw! Thanks, looks really nice. Would be good to see some nice pics of it in the front/back seats of the sportback But this gives me a much better idea of what they'll look like. Thanks very much!

    Use the Audi configurator that gives a pretty good rendition of the inside of the car.

    I am very pleased with my Alcantara by the way

    Half leather and alcantara for me is THE nicest combo for the interior, it looks nicer and is more comfortable than full leather, and looks much smarter than the more common half leather half cloth.

    I test drove a 120,000miles S-Line Sportback with Leather/Alcantara and it had worn extremely well, the driver's seat base had a bit of bobbling but not bad at all for the miles. It also made the interior just look/fee awesome!

    Love that Alcantara, shame the pictures look a tad washed out. I think I have made a good choice with that though, definitely looks very smart... And its fairly rare to see in a car. Which I like

    This confirms it, wish I ordered this rather than sprint cloth!

    By all accounts it's easier to maintain as well?
