    I know a guy selling RS4 seats like what I've got in my SB, they are better as they have electric bolsters and lumbar.

    bloblob2 what color? I am in the US. IF price & color is right I will just take the seat cover + padding. I do not need the frame as they just swap over to my premium seats.

    You seem chilled today ?

    Only joking !!

    Mr A was probably the man responsible for raising the average price paid for used Buckets, on reflection they are worth the outlay, I guess I'm saying you were right Mr A.

    What are you driving now you have sold the S3 ?

    Hi spin, yes i sold the S3.
    Loved the car to look at, the spec was out of this world, & probably something that i will never be able to afford again (unless i have a lottery win).
    But to be honest, for my driving style now as a pretty sensible 47 yr old it did not warrant throwing as much fuel at it as i had to.
    It was quick, make no mistake. But i do like my diesels to be honest.
    Since sold my high spec 3 yr old s line 140 tdi as well, as i expected it to be redundtant with the arrival of the S3.
    Sitting now without a good car to my name, very close to buying another s line tdi.
    Its between two cars, one Ibis 170 good spec sline, & a pretty average spec 140 black edition s tronic in monza silver.
    Dont know whether to buy or wait for the new shape to come, which i guess must be next year now.
    Cheers.
