    S3 Bucket Seats?

    Can the Audi ones be fitted after you have bought the car? Is it a major job, or a stright swap, and plug in to the harness that is there on all models?
    Or an absolute pain in the backside?

    If they are easily swapped, can they be acquired form any where Except Audi Dealers? Cheaper in other words

    Thanks

    Are you buying your car new, as its far cheaper and cost effective to buy new, and ebay/forums are your best bet for them, expect to pay 2250-3000 for interior though. They are easy to fit, 4 bolts, job done.

    Just get some recaro CS's same look, but without the heated and airbags, but i think you can spec them up with recaro.

    Basic cs's cost like 800 each, going up to 1100 each if you want airbags and full leather.

    A3,tdi sportback,remaped,custom turbo back zorst,green filter,19"speedlines,airlift ,xenons,votex side skirts & spoiler,smoothed sline front,s3 back bumper, s3 mirror's,red nappa,s3 vents,pedals, gearknob,fbmfsw,opensky and more. ow and an RS4

    For sale ....dolphin grey tdi 2006 front and back bumpers with grill,fogs etc,mirrors,sportback standard rear lights and mudflaps.
    All going cheap lol
    Also my mint 19 x 9 polished and red faced speedlines,with all good toyo t1rs,coming soon :o)

    You can't buy OEM seats from Recaro. You can buy the basic seat and then add the Audi touch by sourcing the skins. It'[s fecking expensive but its the only way to get them over here unless you want to pay 9000 USD

    Nate, I tried contacting Ed Hessel who is the sales manager from Recaro. ROFL but read this post around halfway down to see what I had to contend with when I just wanted to give Recaro 7000 USD
    http://forums.fourtitude.com/zerothread?id=4810732

    Per my nonfriend ED:

    RECARO is unable to sell any of its OEM seats directly to customers as the OEM owns the final trim and cushion design.
