3 door black Recaro interior - front and rear seats (no door cards)

Out of a 2001 (51 plate) GTI 1.8T with 25k on the clock.

The car is in a pretty bad way but i'm told the seats are mint, not bent or anything and airbags are fine. They look as though they will clean up quite well.

How much would you pay for them?

Mint cloth Recaros with door cards are worth around ?400, however those could possibly have been rained on (not clear if the windows are in) and it's not clear if the crap on the front seats has caused any damage. I would aim to pay around ?250 to ?300 max, especially considering door cards won't be included.

The car has been standing like that for 2 weeks and it's quite possible the windows are missing (glass on seats). Even if they have been rained on could they still clean up ok?

Joey it does match my current interior but I want both fronts and rears. I think ?300 is a fair price. Trying to get more photos, will post up when I have them.

Cheers guys.

I have never been in a 3 door Golf before, but why is the seat release on the inside of the seat (see top pic) ?

To aid the driver letting people get in the back via the passenger door. Good idea when you think about it.

Recaros has always put chair realease on both sides of the chairs to enable the passenger in the back to exit the car easier without have to wait on the driver to pull the release from the door side of the car. I had it the same way on the Recaro leather interior I had in my BMW.

They will need a good clean if they've been rained on and then storing indoors for a while to dry out thoroughly.

I really think you should be aiming to get them for less ?300 you could then maybe get them professionally cleaned with what you save.

Just have a close look at them. If they've been rained on you should be able to see where they've got wet. They'll probably be some white marking round the damp patch. If they're in good condition i'd pay ?250 - ?300 for them but you might aswell try and haggle. Let us know what you decide to do.

Well as long as there is one both sides, otherwise that would be crazy. I have never seen that before but it makes sense so the driver can help the dumb people that cannot get in the back of a car. The number of times I had to lean over to pull the lever because people could not work out how to do it.
