They are not Recaros - they are VW Leather Sports Seats.

I got ?630 for mine - 6 months old in perfect condition complete with door cards and a rear parcel shelf.

I didn't sell my armrest though.

Thats the drivers seat you are looking at - the dozy twonk hasn't even put the two seats together in the right order!

As GaryM says they are definately not recaro's! If they were most recaro's that I've seen have the name stitched into the seats! And the headrests are set differently into the seats aswell on recaro's than normal sports leather seats!

If he wants 3k he's having a laugh! also I reckon he's having a laugh if he reckons they are 3k from the dealer...I thought they were around 1800 quid as an option if that!!!!

Options are always cheaper when taken at the same time as the car purchase.

It wouldn't surprise me if it got up to near that figure for an outright purchase from VW - He is selling front and back seats, all four door cards and a leather armrest.

In my opinion I thing the interior will sell for somewhere around ?750 - ?800.

I think sports seats (Leather) are about ?980 and the Recaros are definetly ?2050 as an option, so either way hes way off base. Not a bad buy for ?400 though!

Trouble is they are upto ?475 already and with 6 days to go....what would you all say to be the upper limit of their value??

Just missed out on Stewarts leather recaros the other day[:(]....?900 and recaros!!

What do i offer to secure them as mine??

Opinions please.....[?]

As I said I think they will go for ?750-?800.

The problem with the price shooting so quickly is he will be looking for around ?1000 to end the auction now.

They are not worth that and I would personally put a top limit of ?700 on them.

Id say ?650-?700 maximum. Problem is you are gonna be bidding against people who don't even know about the Recaros, and so they think its the nicest interior you can get - price goes up. Recaros are so rare though, its a tricky one!

As I say wouldn't get carried away, but anything under ?650 Id be happy with

Email him and let him know they are not recaros first so he can change the description. That way you won't be bidding against someone who thinks they are.

If you do win the bid - go and collect them with cash. He's got zero feedback.

Why does he need to change the description? He is selling a Full leather interior, he didn't mention he was selling a full leather recaro interior.

Why should the buyer think he's getting recaros?

WILL FIT 5 DOOR AND 3 DOOR MK4 GOLF

Why say rubbish like this when quite clearly, the fronts won't work in a 3 door as they have no hinge mechanism!

I hate people that give misleading descriptions!

Have you tried emailing him and asking him how much he would be looking for to end the auction early?

How much are you prepared to pay for them?

You are asking me what i'm trying to guage from you lot.

Sorry if this thread is going on a bit[:I]

Lot of money IMO to spend without thought/discussion!
