    Saggy leather?

    Hi all, bit of a strange question but hope you guys can help.
    Am getting a used A3 cab and seen a nice 12 plate one. Thing is that the leather sections of the seats look very 'loose'.
    Every other one I have seen looks much more 'taught'. Is it me or does it look bad?

    Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

    Does look a little wrinkled tbh.

    I cant imagine isofix seats would cause that degree either, so not sure what's done that.

    Thanks for reply. Its the dealers car so I was wondering if it had been left out in the rain with the roof down?

    Do you think it would have looked like that when new, or must something have happened to it?
    Would you buy it?

    If its that much of an issue and its bothering you either question the dealer or look for another car?
