    Potato shop or what! It'll cost £150-£180 to get it trimmed in alcantara.

    Looks genuine enough to me along with the other bits and pieces. Bit rich for my blood though, £5,230 for a pair of new bucket seats and over £2k for used ones?? I think not.

    The press RS3 that Top Gear mag has that steering wheel. Looks *****. Don't even bother with a retrimmed N8, just buy a bathmat from primark and staple it on. It'll probably look better and be cheaper to boot

    Exactly, why buy that when retrim is nowhere near those prices & without bag.

    Disagree there, they look great imho, had 2, 1 in my S3, 1 in my S4, S3 had until nearly 100k from 15k & it was as fresh since day 1 when I sold the car, same with S4, was as new when sold.

    100%, stunning wheel to drive with, also in winter isnt freezing & summer you dont burn your hands, perfect wheel IMHO, loved driving my 2 with those wheels.
