    They probably will, but the front seats from a 5 door will have no tilt and slide. That'll make accessing the rear seats of your 3 door a bit of a nightmare.

    I'd say it would be madness to fit them. Be patient. Seats do come up from time to time. I bought two black full leather sets, both heated and both within 3 months of owning the car I started with half leather.

    How about a nice set of dimpled leather S3 seats?

    Not a bad price as it has door cards which you could sell on to recoup some of the money if you didn't want to fit them.

    Lol no worries.

    The auction had ended now but with no bids. Might be worth contacting the seller and put a lower offer in. The S3 seats look the nuts although the leather is a bit in the soft side. I have them in mine :-)
