    My mate's got an S3 but due to kids he's not getting on well pulling the seats back and forth so is looking to swap them out.

    He posted this on TSN :

    http://www.tyresmoke.net/forum/audi...eler-swap-buckets-standard-s3-seats-cash.html

    "Hi,

    Anyone out there with an S3 with the standard black leather seats and fancy upgrading to the buckets?

    Although I LOVE them, getting the kids in and out on a daily basis is a chore... so I'm asking on here first before buying/selling on eBay.

    I know the buckets fetch really good money, so there'd need to be a money transaction too, but I'm not going to ask silly money.

    P"

    If you're not registered let me know and I'll pass on your comments etc.

    I just thought someone on here could be keen on this :icon_thumright:

    Hi ya,

    Just registered on here... :rock:

    I have a 3-door S3, so the donor car would need to be the same as I need the slide function that the Buckets don't provide.

    My thoughts are £500 plus the donor seats for the buckets.

    If they are half-leather half-alcantara, then we'd need to swap the rear seats too so they match (as I have full leather)

    Cheers (and HI EVERYONE!)

    Paul :s3addict:

    No problem at all Nigel they are yours for the buying, I will organise some pics for you I have just been so busy at work but thankfully things will be much easier next week as many of the absent staff return to work.

    There may be an opportunity to see them for real next week if you are around as I may be over at Matt's place - it's a long story but one that will be shared, eventually :)

    Buckets are`really well worth the wait, so much more comfortable and supportive than the standard S3/S-line items.

    If Nigel doesn't buy them you can be next in line Nathan, there is a lad off here called Luke who has enquired a few times but only offerred £1,800 to date and as you know I paid £2000 so need to recoup the money before the next S3 arrives :)

    Sorry N8... but I just couldn't part with them.

    Also, I have heated rear seats, so changing the fronts and rears (so they matched) was likely to be a faf.

    Anyway, hope you find a set... sure the ones Spin has for sale are top notch... let hope another set some up.
