    I am in the early stages of conversation with a recaro supplier (recommended by recaro at the Autosports show) about designing and producing a taylor made Audi S3 protective seat cover.
    I do not have a price for these yet but will be below £40 pounds each,

    Would anybody be interested in one of these to protect there seats?

    would they still allow the seat airbags to work properly?

    is the recommended supplier Capital Seating in Leicester?

    I have a snap on one atm and it just doesnt fit, at the min they are only taliking about 8L chasis seat covers,
    Yes Jon, it is capital seating, they have asked for my car for 1 day to make the design and they would not charge me the setting up fee as they usually would, he quoted me £37.50 for the cover.

    I set up a group buy with them a couple of years ago for some Integra Type R covers. They are really nice guys. I was actually thinking recently of approaching them to ask as i've never seen a decent S3 Recaro cover. I think they would sell quite a few to be honest.

    Like I said before though I'd be a bit dubious about the seat airbag deployment with one of these fitted, it would be good to hear there views on that

    I asked audi about a seat cover for the S3 and the whole reason they dont make them is because of the seat airbags.
    Id rather protect my nice leathers though!!

    It will look very similar to this that they they produce for the Reacro integra seats as Jon said.

    pointless really i think, £40 per seat,


    you buy the car to enjoy the leather, same reason why people by leather sofas, to enjoy the comfort

    theres excellent products out there which keep the leather nice and clean and protects it, so bit confused to why to cover them which looks like a big bag lol

    just my honest opinion

    on alcantara maybe, but on full leather WTF!!

    How about getting them to make one with cutouts around the airbags on the seats. You ciould also tuck it in around the airbag, on the s3 they are seperate items with a join you could hide the fabric in.
