    Astra CDX factory leather?

    I have a W reg CDX with what I believed to be full factory leather, however after getting hold of a Vauxhall Brochure for this year it appears that the only leather available was the sports style?

    Are my seats just retrimmed cloth seats?



    also is there a remote chance they could be heated? im going to check behind the tc panel this evening for the loom and will get a pic of under the seats.


    Cheers

    They look like the standard seats wrapped with leather.

    If they're heated the switches will in place as well. The wiring will probably be in place but it's not a simple plug and play job.

    As above, i'm pretty sure thats not a Vauxhall trim colour for that era. The white piping certainly isnt. Check your B post, inside the door shut and get the trim code. it should be 4 letters. This will tell you what interior youc car had from the factory. I'll put 50p on Rhombus Velour.

    BTW your interior looks a nice job, I'd be happy with it! Someone's gone to the trouble of retrimming it by the looks of it.

    Agreed. I like the door cards.

    Definitely not factory fitted leather.
