    Are you looking for the fronts or backs, or the whole shebang, matching door cards etc?

    I'd have thought secondhand on ebay, or if you want new i'd get existing ones recovered, it's likely to be cheaper than buying through Audi and probably better quality leather.

    I think N8 had his done recently...?

    I reckon the full interior from audi will be around £4000 any day of the week. I'm sure they would be happy to charge you £500+ to fit it too.

    The covers you mean? The base for the drivers seat in half leather was £220 so i'm guessing about 1000 for the 2 fronts and similar for the rears.

    Its much more cos effective to get a professional retrim at around £1200

    Your seats and leather seats both use the same frame. You can swap covers only if you want.

    So the standard, non-sport, cloth seats use the same frame as S-Line seats?

    Yes identical, the standard S3 seats are also the same, its only the trim that differes.

    I'm not sure with this Edd guy though, he doesnt want the interior replacing and he doesnt wasnt the covers either, what does he want. I'm confused!

    My advice - ring the dealer but sit down first before they tell you the price!

    you can buy leather seats off ebay for £500-£800 depending if you want full or half leather. and then just fit it yourself. I wouldn't go near Audi dealers for this as they will rob you in pure daylight!
