    Hi due to work circumstances changing i might be selling my S3, this means that my Buckets might be up for sale.

    So the question is how much are they worth bearing in mind i would want some standard OEM S3 black leather front seats in exchange aswell which are in good condition and heated.

    Buckets are heated and were from an S3

    Pics took today.

    I'm wanting to, but we need an outsider's idea of price. What would they be worth if I swap for my seats (ie what are each set of seats worth so we can work out the difference)?

    well it would help if the seller gave an idea of what hes looking for!

    My absolutely mint silver/black S3 seats front and rears sold for £700ish... i bought my buckets for £1650... they werent in great cond compared to my original seats either.

    this should give you an idea..

    Buckets tend to sell anything from £1250 (for just fronts) all the way up to £2500 (if theyre in mint condition) inc rear bench

    Sorry, jumped the queue weeks ago when he first mentioned possibly selling them. Looking at the prices though I might have to wait for the next set and let you take them.

    Just the fronts of mine for (at most) £500 would mean at least £750 cash too. Looks like I'll have to let my head win this one and step down :sob:

    Ok im trying to get the idea of price and then i will create either a link on here or ebay to be fair ive had an offer of £1100 including swap but he cant complete to the middle of september, depends on the cheaper car i look at tomorrow. I dont really want to sell anything but im going on reduced hours so less money a month to pay for things so ive decided on a cheaper older car and sell off the good bits as it wont make much difference on trade in.

    I'd say £1000 plus two S3 leather front seats. They pretty good condition beside a bit of wear on the driverside.
