    The best option is to have your current seats retrimmed, someone like classic car services get very good reports. Cost will be around £1200 + VAT but thats drive in & out and they leather will be better quality and you can choose the colour.

    Trim from a breakers yard is going to be a round £700 then you have to fit it yourself and if the airbags have been deployed thats additional cost. The other issue is the seats maybe twisted as a result of the impact and worse still may be covered in blood.

    Try Autorads/Statller they also do sports/prestige vehicle breaking and when there last week I saw an Audi A4 Avant Driver pick up a full leather S-line interior, everything from door cards to handbrake, it was in beautiful condition so the car can't have been very old prior to write off - biggest problem with this route is varied conditions and limited availability.
    0114 272 1289, based in sheffield.

    I had a full retrim last year (On A4) at Classic Car services and there work is second to none, for the £1,100 to £1,200 mentioned by Steve you will get a an amazing interior choosing colours, leather grades, contrasting stitching etc, or he will just copy Audi standard if desired, turn around is 4 days and all is hand stitched/cut to size, based in Leicestershire - a truly skillfull tradesman.

    When I sold the A4 back to Audi (PX) I got back what I paid 7/8 months before (£19,250) and they sold the car on their forecourt with a price of £21,495 - they avertised it as having 'Exclusive' Lthr trim - this is the qualityattained, view the website and my A4 is on there, or was ?!?
