    Sounds like it will look very nice when done.
    Don't forget about pics before and after, as its a mod I might consider in the future.

    Does Audi supply them?

    Good luck in changing them over. Good mod. Not taken mine out in the A3 but done a few in golfs and the backs were pretty easy so fingers crossed you should be ok.

    I'm glad the interior is going to a good home. Pleased I could help out another forum member. Not long to wait now mate

    When I replaced my rear bench, I broke one of the gromits that hold it in place. I ordered two from Audi just in case I broke the other side when I replaced the faulty one. Luckily it all went smoothly, so I have a spare gromit which I will send with the seats in case you need it.

    I've stuck it in the storage compartment under the drivers seat. Good luck with the swap.

    no mate its a full set of heated leather seats and new cards.
    not sure on the part numbers but getting them from audi would cost a small fortune probably best to do what iv done and find a nice man willing to sell you his
