Leather seats


I am looking to change my cloth seats to leather, 156 seats seem to come up for sale much more frequently than spider/GTV's and are cheaper.

Will they fit and has anyone already fitted 156 seats in a spider ?

Seem to have a lot more colours available too.

My spider is silver, grey carpet

Re: Leather seats

Have you checked to see how much it would be to re upholster your setas in leather instead of replacing the seats altogether?

May work out cheaper and you can choose your exact colour!

Well for a drivers car, fabic is better than leather as you get more grip on your bum ....
Leather is really for looks only (poseur value )

Re: Leather seats

Retrim sounds like a better option to me. That way you can get alcantara on the centre section; stops all that slip slidin' around and you can use the steering wheel for steering instead of something to hang onto...

And another thing, when I've cleaned mine they make an unpleasant noise while twisting in the seat to exit. Could be I'm using the wrong cleaner though. Embarrasses my wife more than me.
