    So interiors.....

    How easy or is it not to come across another interior for an S3?

    I'm considering some work inside but want to keep the original for when I come to sell the car. In the past on our astra vxr's we purchased a full interior that was re-done in the required look

    Do you know if the S3 interior is much different from a s line etc....the most important aspect would not necessarily be the condition of the leather as that would be replaced but the moulding underneath


    Nice set of recaros would be good, but can't see that happening lol

    Hi jen i think its different only by the sline writing on the leather ,and the leather its self .. Always better to hold on to your original parts when trading the car back for a newer one .

    the interiors can be the same also like said though embossing is one of the difference you can also get dimply leather on the s3, there are two twone interiors out there too or always the option of getting a cloth one seat frames are no different from the sport up minus the recaros natrually

    Thanks....at least it helps to widen the search and might be cheaper than sticking to look for an s3 interior only

    Hey Jen, any 8P 3dr interior would be suitable (so long as the seats were heated) as you'd be having it retrimmed anyway. I have also seen people use the A5/S5 interior which looks much better IMO, though I believe the rear bench needs a bit of modification to fit, but nothing too radical required in order for it to be perfect. You could probably pick up a set of leather seats for a pretty decent price. This is something on my list of to do's also. I'll be having N8 sort the whole lot out for me when the time comes. xx

    Jen as Paulie said above, the seats are going to be retrimmed so as long as it has the right shape then the covers would be replaced regardless of the S-Line embossed upper cover.

    You want an interior like this members. My A3 Sportback 170 Quattro.
    Them seats with a java green detailing would look amazing. And the juicy logo in the headrests.

    I love that Kahn interior...inspiration right there lol. So the prices arent too bad really that A5 one looks knackered leather wise so wouldnt mind ripping it up! My next concern though would be the plastics around the bottom as they would need to be good quality as well.

    Black, green and cream combo

    i honestly wouldnt think the plastics would be in too much of a bad condition. the Kahn one is really nice!

    Those A5 seats with green stitching and a little green insert/logo would look lovely on your goblin! maybe some green piping on the carpet mats and some green stitching on the door cards and triangles too? also maybe do more green on the rear bench as they usually just look too plain on most retrims.
    or you could just go all the way and do a seat like N8 and make the whole thing green although it would be too much IMO.

    I've been watching s-line/s3 interiors on ebay for the past few months. £350-400 seems to be the going rate for s-line leathers.

    If your retrimming get the sports cloth seats as I'm pretty sure they are the same frame as s-line/s3. Generally £100-200
    For Sale -
    A3 rear wiper motor and arm
    A3 air vents
    56plate A3 S-Line full speaker system including amp

    Heres my S3 interior in my Sport, picked it up for £700 inc door cards, they're out of a 2010 S3 that had covered 3k miles, so basically brand new!



    If anyone is after the Sport interior i have a set inc door cards for sale, from a 3 door.

    Don't hurt me but.... I think their stuff is really chavvie - I went to look at a range rover sport that had been completely ruined by overdoing it with the ridiculous Kahn stuff.. It was like being sat in Spearmint Rhinos. I've seen much more tasteful (and better crafted) interiors from a number of other places - namely Edgeautomotive. I was really suprised at how baggy and ill-fitting the kahn stuff was. Sure it looks great on their website, but in the flesh, the standard range rover interior was loads better made IMO.. not as flashy, but if you're gonna spend all that money I'd want a better finish, not just some lairy colours and overdone quilted doorcards.....?

    I'm liking the sound of black and green though, with your logos embroidered on the headrests..

    Nice but I don't think just the back seats and door cards would sell on their own unfortunately
