    S4 seats/interior

    hi all, just saw these while aimlessly looking thru the net.

    how hard are S4 interiors to come by in the uk? what kind of cost would they be?

    many thanks

    Blimey crikey that's more than they originally cost new!
    I got my black leather/alcantara interior complete with door cards for 400 on ebay. OK it wasn't recaro but overrated IMO anyway. Leather interiors don't come up very often, it took 4 months of looking to get mine, scrapyards are useless unless you know a good one, the good stuff is gone before they even unload the car.

    Alcantara is actually the same price as full leather. Have fun slipping & sliding all over your new seats.
    Full S4 interiors would go for about 800.

    Re: S4 seats/interior

    But by limiting your choice to S4 interiors it's not really about cost but how often these interiors come up. I had to wait 4 months for mine from any B6 A4 Avant, I've never seen one available from an S4 in that time. I must see 20 non S4's to every S4 on the roads so you're limiting your choice by a factor of 20, so 4 months becomes 80 months. Which is why that German example was going for stupid money. There just aren't any around. If you write off an S4 then someone will pay good money to buy the wreck intact and get it back on the road.

    If leather is looked after & treated with the right cleaners (such as Liquid Leather) , it should not be slippery at all. Too often the problem is that the leather is either not cleaned, or it's cleaned with the wrong stuff, as a result of which it becomes shiny.

    Yes but whichever way you look at it, it is more slippery than alcantara, and colder too. We have both and I much prefer the half leather alcantara as you can really wedge yourself into it.

    I must confess there are times in winter when i wish it had bum-warmers.

    What's the wear like on Alcantara compared say with normal cloth seats?

    Andy has a very good point kenny.

    But like me you've got an S-Line and anything other than a full Recaro S4 interior would be pointless............................


    I saw a silver nappa S4 interior on Ebay a while back, but I can't remember what it went for sorry...................... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Mind you going by Andy's theory, you've got a long wait for the next one................!!

    Good Luck [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Re: S4 seats/interior

    S6 or any A6 Seat has a completely different seat rail system and will not fit.

    You can buy the Original S4 Recaro's direct from Recaro at a cost of 1400each - but will plug in and work - airbags included
