Very nice lex, will look really good once they are fitted. If you don't fancy fitting them, could always give them to me and I'll put them in my car [:D]

hey mate

Nice one

Got my R32 seats a while back now they are great.

Fitting is a piece of piss, the only problem i had was that the wirring harness on the bottom were different, so what i did was to take the harness off my gti seats because that fitted to the car. And then just re wirred them.

They are the most fitting seats EVER.

They are a dream to drive in mate

That makes two 17 year olds with a set of r32 leathers then eh. [:p]

Have you any idea on the mileage of the car they came out of? I only ask because they look like they haven't suffered from the baggy seat bum mark too badly!

it was from v-dubs limited in kent, they were breaking an r32.
im not sure on the mileage but they look much better in person but as soon as my big ass gets into the seat they will be even more shagged.

yeah i thought they looked a little shagged too.

They look like they have done a few miles..
I actually said they didn't look too bad. Everyone I know of that has leather R32 seats has suffered from saggy leather, but those don't look as bad as my drivers seat or most of the others I've seen!

ner you have to appreciate how nice they are, once you seat in them you will ever get out lol

you best get a good alarm incase someone wants to nick the seats instead of the car.

read it somewhere,where i R32 got broke into, and the thing they taken were the seats etc and nothing else!!
