    Hi Lads,

    I have managed to source a set of leather seats for my a4 front and rear... however the guy says the door cards are not in good enough shape to sell on... so Im going to be stuck with my cloth interior door cards...

    Anyone got any pictures up close of their leather door cards so I can see...

    Cheers,
    Martin

    i have cloth so i cant see them doing more just as its leather mate id say its the same parts just not in cloth id think your local upholstry shop would have some scraps kicking about for for next to nothing mate id also be inclined to leave the cloth on there and put the leather over the top to give it some padding

    I would ask him what condition theyre in for him to say that. If all you want is the leather parts I would still ask him to send them and you can then swap the parts around or worst case give both sets to a retrimmer and ask them to do a swap- at least it saves on materials then

    no worries :), he might have said theyre not usable due to smashed plastic on the doors or huge cracks or something, but as long as the leather isnt ripped then its worth a shot + you get your moneys worth :)

    just stumbled across a set on a breakers website yesterday... he was about an hour away from me... but he is still willing to deliver them to me... unlucky though... dont think he has any more of them... if he did I would prob have taken them and sold them on :thrashi:
