    Hey guys!

    Just had a peek on ebay and quarry motors are selling a set of grey sports leather seats and doorcards! Now i know grey is gay but.. i got grey carpet grey plastics on the dash and that so to change it black would be a nightmare and i dont have the time or money really! So do i snap them up then sell the old ones for some pennies? Would people buy my grey ones or not?

    Help!

    if they are a snatch then buy them mate.
    what colour is the car?
    i think personally any leather, as long as its in good condition will add a tiny bit of value to the car.
    especially if the plastics in the car are grey aswell

    Depends how long your keeping the car Ben.. if your still planning on upgrading in the summer I wouldn't bother too be honest!

    However I can say for sure having gone from standard cloth seats to leather sport seats its a massive difference, would never even consider a BM without sport seats now!

    Wouldn't necessarily fancy grey but like you said you have grey carpets etc like I had in my 316ti so they'll go nice..

    If its a bargain and your keeping the car for a while then go for it.. you won't regret it

    Also only go for it if you can afford the full price of the leather sport seats because you'll struggle to get anything for standard cloth interior.. maybe just about cover what quarry charge for postage!

    any pallet carriers will beat that Ben.. give Quarry a few quid to wrap everything up well to make sure the seats don't get knocked or scraped in carriage and you'll be away to go!

    try these: http://www.speedshift.co.uk/

    not sure how much extra it'll cost cos your in the back of beyond

    Thats about the right price from a breakers yard like quarry (they're not that cheap for bits). Leather seem in good nick too, its just the postage thats murdering the price for you.

    Depends how bad you want them?
