Just be careful with them if you do. Ideally added to your insurance with CCTV
 They are hot items that are stolen.

As nice as these seats are.. they’re ridiculous amounts of money! I’d much prefer some cheaper aftermarkets (brand new too)

I like them. Seeing as they were around £1700 as an option from new and now you can pick a set up for circa 2k i think they’re worth it. Also i dont see them ever dropping below £1500.

I think they are awesome seats - absolutely one of the things that struck me about APS's R32 demo car many, many years ago. However, as others have said, I would not have these seats without having a secure garage. I had a set of mkiv R32 seats stolen out of my mkiv 1.8t- we're not in a bad area, but they were brazen. 6 houses look over our driveway. They turned off all the interior lights in the car, moved the sensor on the security light so it wouldn't trigger - not sure how easy seats are to fit in the mk5, but very easy to remove on the mkiv...

They look better and the alcantara won't burn you in summer like full leather will and you won't slide around so much in the seat.

He is, yes, but does ship stuff. I thought the OP was the prospective buyer rather than yourself though.

I'm not in the market for them...just shared Nat's posting which I just saw before seeing this, the OPs post.

When I wrote "I'm in the U.S."...those words weren't necessary. I only meant to say I an not  in the UK but I believe Nat is.
