    I doubt it...they are S3 Recaro seats, in the correct optional fabric...neither of which I remember being offered on the A3 at the time.

    Why though? :whistle2:

    Full leather was a standard fit option on the S3 wasn't it? - The only reason I could think of for choosing cloth would be if you lived in a really hot country (import maybe?) but even so you'd have thought he'd go for alacantra instead.

    Leather standard, or leather/alcantara or Jagard (sp?) cloth as no-cost options.

    Maybe the 1st owner was a Vegan?

    The only place I've ever seen cloth recaros was in Germany. I think they were an option or possible the standard for the rest of Europe.

    That's one way of devaluing an S3 when you drive off the forecourt, tick optional cloth seats. :sadlike:

    I am pretty sure that it might be an import, I have only ever seen 1 other S3 with cloth in the UK and that was a grey one, and that was listed as an import in the advert.

    S3 owners have a sense of humour...ask Jojo about his crappy AMD remap or 1Animal1 about his custard code or S3fan about cleaning my car or Sandip about his mattress :)

    My old S3 use to have full cloth interior (exactly as pictured above). It was actually really nice, I much prefer it to the 'orrible sticky leather I have now!

    My black S3 has got yellow alcantara and black leather, standard from factory and I wouldn't want anything else.
