How much would you pay for 2001 s4 front and back seats in black in excellent condition? how much are they worth?

I found a set in black leather for $500 locally. I didn't buy them because of the costs of installing them, and the risks involved. I would pay $500 but not more. I'm not sure what they're worth, but imagine it depends whether they are alcantera or not. Maybe upwards of $1000 if in pristine condition?

The risks are the method in which they are mounted in the car. I talked with several people regarding this, including KTR Performance. Most people put this device in that is like a nut that crimps the metal around it (so that the seats can be screwed in). This is the easy way, but it can be very unreliable. The other way is to weld a nut in, but even this is risky because the floor metal is thin. When I talked to KTR they recommended reinforcing the whole seat (not exactly sure what that entails but you can probably imagine). They quoted me about $300 to install them. All in all, I could have it done for $800, but when it came down to it I'd rather spend $800 elsewhere.

Of course the concern here is that in an accident, the seats won't support the force of impact.

If you do this, I'd recommend bringing it to a shop and getting it done right. You might have to go to a performance shop, I think a normal mechanic might turn you down because of liability.

Of course, this is only if you have the 1.8T with manual seats, which your information says you have. I believe it's a direct swap with cars with power seats. With the 1.8T, you have to cut out the rail you have now, so putting the old seats back isn't possible (well, within reason, of course).
