?<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><VoteOptions question="I am thinking of retrimming my R32 seats.. Pics inside and poll (Y or N)" description="Ok guys, here is the big one. I bought 10m of alcantara from a merc SLK.. It is beautiful material and I was thinking of re-triming my R32 seats with it!

I have included a pic of the material shoved into the sides of the seats to give a idea what it would look like. Bear in mind the seats will have the R logo embrodered into the top of them and the flat alcantara panels will of course have stiching over them to break them up...

So should I go ahead?

Or should i leave them the way they are?

Cheers again...."><a>Go for the alcantara retrim</a>Leave the seats well enough alone</VoteOptions>

Leave them unless you can get the .:R logo embroided into them.

Anyway...thought you were selling?

LOL at carlos....

I would sell, if someone would buy[:p]

But I dont want to go to the hassle of advertising it!!!

I thought the retrim would keep my heart in the car for a while as well...

lol, torn between the differing opinions of uk-mkiv.net + RMS martyn ;)!!

as long as you're sure of a first class job, i too would probably go for it. just make sure you apply plenty of that seat protector you spoke of.
