    Will be selling my S3 in a few months before I get my new 8V and just wondering whenever to sell the bucket seats separately or sell them in the car as they are now.

    Just thought I'd ask and see what the consensus is.

    What asking the question? Lol.

    Most people sell for £1,000 + standard seats but wanted to know if people would pay extra for them in car or would just make it potentially more attractive

    You will end up better off removing them and selling them, I don't think people would pay £1k more than book for a car purely because it has buckets.

    Cheers guys, confirmed it then. Will advertise separately and see how it goes. They fairly straightforward to swap over?

    I would have!/\ but seats would have to be a bonus. Although it depends on the condition of your seats.

    100% Condition is a must! Well for me personally!

    Could have a solid gold gear knob but if the cars not what I want etc!

    I'll upload some pics tomorrow and get them in the for sale section. 1k + normal seats seems to be average price.

    They are good condition, no rips etc. Just general wear.

    Good plan, you wouldn't get much for them if you leave them in the car.

    Are you getting an S3 8V? Which options have you gone for?

    there are people who look for the buckets and will pay extra for them, 1k plus another set is maybe a bit high but if you don't ask you dont get.

    I've been looking around and they seem to sell for £1500-£2000 so I thought £1000 + standard was about right and they are in good condition.
