Ok, so I came across this item on the classified, but it's in cream I want it in black. I am planning to get my interior re-upholstered but this would be so much easier. Does anyone know where I can get this for my 2002 Bora?

The ones in the ad are a little top end on the price as they aren't the headrest-notched recaro seats. But they are in great nick.

Full re-upholstering is anywhere between ?1000 - ?2000.

On the otherhand you can get the real stamped, black recaros on ebay for about ?900.

The fact that they aren't Recaro isn't an issue for me, I really like that design, even the head rest are pretty cool Recaro stamped or not.

Any idea where I can get some like those outside of ebay?

I like this, door cards and centre armrest included?

How old are those seats? The driver's seat has puddled already. Ugly, ugly, ugly. IMHO and you probably may know that I loathe leather seats in cars and so just ignore my comments.

what year is the car?

you should also be able to see how many wires are coming out of the plug.

Sorry, i'm not in england and haven't the foggiest what a 53 plate means but if it's 2003 (guess) then it should be 3 pin.

fi you want an easy look at the seats they are soo easy to take out what they can do is if you undo the front 2 bolt which are right on view it just slides back and out of the rails and then tilt up loads so you can see the wires, there are deffinatly 3 wire on a 53reg like mine and the fitted stright into my r32 plugs, i was lucky.
if you want i would get some picture of the airbag connectors from my old standard seats and the r32 ones but you lot are on about the vw sport leather so it might not help at all,
