    Buckets for 8P S3 <--- N8 you're wanted!

    Are the buckets in a Mk5 Golf R32 the same as the 8P S3 buckets?

    If not, will they fit an 8P S3 anyway?

    Just looking for options other than Łthousands at Audi or looking for the proverbial on ebay!

    No they're not the same mate. Both Recaros and they should fit yeah. N8 is the man to ask though.

    I was wondering, If you worked for Audi, would you get staff discount on a brand new pair of recaros, I know they price up at somewhere between Ł3.5 -4k, but was just wondering...

    The R32 buckets are slightly different looking, slightly prettier! They should bolt in just fine, although I have no proof of it, Jules came close to buying an R32 Recaro interior, but it fell through. I know the Mk5 back bench is the same as the A3 one.

    Matt's also wired in the electric lumbar and bolsters this evening, so I've got one over all you buckets boys now......

    Do you now have the inflatable sides working now as well, or will they only work in the RS4 itself?

    It appears the R32 buckets are just as rare as S3 ones

    He must be laughing. It's like sitting in an RS4 or an RS6. Plus when he starts up it reminds him of the tractors back when he was a kid in Bristol. WIN!

    Ew no I hope not!

    Black nappa is the most cost effective re-trim apparently. The standard grey is mega bucks

    Damn fine looking seats. TBH, I dont think the red is that bad though I wouldn't opt for it myself.

    looks pretty cool.

    I if I had buckets I'd have to re-trim them to match the grey leather inserts I have in the rest of the interior, I wonder how that would look...
