I'd say easily £2k to get a top notch retrim in good quality leather with door cards to match. But some of the retrims I have seen have been awesome.

Well my girlfriend owns a Polo GTi.

She retrimed all the seats + doors with high quality leather.

The cost was 1.350euro (about £900) and the result is awesome!!!

Here a pic:



Now for my mkIV I have, let say a crazy idea... I want to share it with you...

I want to replace the Pacific front seats with these one:



(Red leathered Sparco Milano 3... - I think some Ferrari's wear those(???) ) and retrim the back seats + doors with black high quality leather...

What do you think for the combination? Can you imagine it? You will open the door and see just 2 red bucket inside... All the other black & brushed aluminium...

It is not a mkIV but I think it will looks like this:







All opinions are acceptable!!! [:p]

scorpio - her polo looks amazing (interior that is!)

those sparco seats are a bit too red (bright) for my liking!!

seems like a good deal - i may have to go ireland for a week or so!!

can you give me details as to who done the retrim?

Try the Seat Surgeons in York. Phone them and ask for Paul, mention Stu and my website and it should be between £800 and £1k including door cards.

I organised a deal with Paul for the Brisky boys and loads have had theirs done, some pics on my website -

Search Briskoda for Seat Surgeons for reviews.
