I am hopefully going to buy a gti interior sometime next week, and was wondering how difficult it is to take out and put in the new seats, i have no idea how to change seats, so any advice is mucho appreciated!!! also, if anyone has a gti interior/ TD Iinterior or even just the front seats for sale, any spec, as long as they are sport seats, do let me know!

Thanks Dudes,

Dave

IMO only get the recaro seats, the sport spec are terrible on the back on long haul. Ignore people who tell you they are the same seats just without the badge, they just ain't. Been in both, never giving up my rocks!!

Good hunting

P.s. think there is a three door anniversary set on the bay at the minute

thanks dude, trying to find a set for around 200 squids, and the anni edition seats are sooo expensive!!noted about the sport seats, are they really that bad??i was originally meant to be getting a Gt TDI, till the insurance fell thru! and when i test drove it the seats seemed luxurious!!! that was compared to standard polo seats tho!! What seats are you rocking at the mo??

seats are easy to fit mate, all you really need to make sure is to disconnect the battery 2 sec job.
and when taking them out you will need to remove the plastic trim which covers the sliders behind the seat and then 2 bolts visable from the lower front and it should slide back but then just lift up slightly and unclip airbag connecters and lift out.?
easy peasy mate

Alright Dave,

Missus has the sport seats in her motor and I have the Recaro's in mine ( yes I AM the boss (aren't I dear?[:S])) Difference is quite alot to be honest. Recaro's have deeper bolsters and lumbar and generally offer very good support. The 'sport' seat is ok for short trips to town etc but after half an hour or more they are poor. Remember that this is just my opinion, everyone thinks and feels differently. You can get the rocks for ?300-400 secondhand and this would be my advice to you, wait, save, enjoy.

Could be worse, okky VRS(dads) half leather seats, OUCH!![:'(]

I have rear sports seats in the garage. If you want them let me know. I'd take ?70 for them. All you need is to stick the stock headrests on them - they're all the same anyway.

I didn't sell them to him. I bought the back seat for someone else who was a tyre kicker. I didn't take to kindly to it either. But I know the seats are easy to sell so i didn't mind that much. I can probably ask for a price for you if you want. I know the guy personally so he should do me a good deal.

I have plenty of friends and family in london so I'm sure I could get them down there some way or another.

If you're stuck let me know.
