    I contacted a seat cover manufacturer to get some covers for my S3. They said that the Recaro Style seats in the S3 are slightly different to the after market version. They have been trying to get hold of an S3 to measure up a template. If I brought my car in they offered to give me a free cover. These aren't cheap Halfords covers, they are fitted quality covers.

    The problem is that I live in Bournemouth and the place is in Leicester.

    If anyone here lives up that way then all you need to do to get a free cover is to take your car there for a few hours. This would be good for me too as once they have the template they can make some up for me.

    If you are interested, send me a message and I will let you have the details.

    Thanks,

    Gaz

    They will be approx £40 each. I have seen the set they made for my friends Intergra and they are pretty good.

    They said they wanted the car for "a few hours".

    I would post the details but they guy was doing me a favour so I don't want fifty people phoning him up tomorrow trying to get a free cover ;-)

    The seat covers have been made up. I have had one delievered and it is a pretty good fit. They cost £37 I think. They are black only.

    The company is Capital Seating:
