    How often does Mk4 leather come up for sale?

    I'm in the market for a fairly low spec Mk4 (ECO 4) at the moment, but am wondering how often leather interiors come up for sale?

    Not too fussed what colour, but must fit a 5 door car, so I'd have thought that would make it a bit easier...

    Any ideas what the going rate is?

    Cheers,

    Ian.

    you could look around for vectra leather too, front seats are direct replacement, rear seats just need the brackets moving about a bit. Will be cheaper than astra leather
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    I've had a few Vectra CDXs and the leather in them is OK I guess, but I'd really like to get the Astra stuff as it's a lot more sporty and much nicer looking.

    Interesting point about the front seats having the same fittings though.

    5 door leather is quite rare TBH.

    3 door + coupe leather seats will fit, but the door cards won't as the doors are bigger on a 3dr.

    Astra leather seats are always SRi-type sports seats, even when ordered as an option on CDX - the bolsters hold you in better, at road-legal speeds anyway.

    Sack the leather and get yourself a set of Veccy Gsi seats for the ultimate in proper Recaro grip!

    Thanks Buckle - sadly you confirm what I thought - that I might be in for a bit of a wait.

    LOL I like the Vec GSi recaros, but want the car to look factory, which means matching door cards really.

    I don't have any problems on corners in leather clad cars... maybe because I'm normally holding onto the steering wheel?

    my Veccy GSi recaros match my doorcards fine, the seats are predominantly black with charcoal pattern, and my standard (LS) doorcards are plain black too

    I wouldn't go for the Veccy recaro's though - getting too common now
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G
