    Question I hate my Leather seats.

    I hate these in my (57) S3.. When its cold outside they are horrible to sit in and when its hot outside they hurt to sit in.. I want them changed,

    Is it easy enough to get them reupholstered to half leather half this stuff.





    Also will the heated seats work this this material?

    thanks

    Reupholsters can do pretty much anything, but at a cost.

    The best place will probably be eBay.

    Yes heated seats will work fine with that material.

    I understand the problem when its winter, but if you have heated seats its not a worry.

    I've never had that problem in summer though in any of the leathered cars i've owned?

    This is in the wrong forum, you'd get more useful answers in the S3 8P forum.

    try www.classiccarservices.co.uk I would guess it would cost around 6-700 to have the centre sections covered in alcantra

    Might be easier to find someone willing to do a swap! A few people on here have the half leather/Alcantara. I assume your S3 seats are mint so you need to find someone with an equalliy good set to swap. Not me unfortunately!

    I went to see a few alcantara leather but they dont wear so well.

    Im not sure what material it is but i have them in my s-line - its quite nice.



    It's like a perforated material and Thats water on the seat btw - not a stain! lol

    Wish i had heated seats then i wouldnt have minded swapping mine for yours
