'm thinking of putting a black leather/suede combo plus suede on doors and steering wheel.

About 2 sec's, prob 6 months before one sweaty palms would smooth the suede out.

I had one on my previous car and it held up for like 2 years before it started to wear out. then again it does depend on how sweaty your palms get. haha.

There's original RS4 suede steering wheels. Do you think they hold short?? I don't think so...

ok. RS4's alcantara:

alcantara is much more durable then both suede and ultrasuede which is very similar to alcantara

ok so the first pic of the S4 B6 seats are alcantara right?

I'm just trying to figure out if oem seats are leather with alcantara or suede.

audi, bmw.....etc use only alcantara which is a synthetic material made to withstand higher usage

ok. I'm going with alcantara them. already got a quote. full leather/alcantara interior. seats doors, shift boot and steering wheel for €1000 = USD1334.

Sounds like a deal, as long as they do a good job. Post pics when you get it back!

BTW, I had my Mk2 Golf's interior recovered in a vinyl and 'suede' insterts (seats and door cards) for $1100, so that's why I say I think it's a good deal.

If you do a google image search for Michael Rollins, you should see my 'old' car, and it's recovered interior...

Later,
Mike

So what do you think about it? Something like you are wanting? Of course, I couldn't get alcantara nearly as cheap as you could, so I had to go a 'cheaper' route. I was very happy with the results.

Later,
Mike

What would you guys think of the black leather (pleather) sports seats with a deep rich brown pleather on the bolsters and the black perferated leather in the middle???

mike. looks great.

I'm still considering other colors from black but still think black is perfect.

It all depends on what color brown you get. IMO, black and brown doesn't really work together, but then again, the dash is mostly (if not all) black, so maybe so...

Thanks man. I poured quite a bit of time (and not to mention money) into my old Mk2 Golf. I had ALOT of pride in that thing!

Have you considered a dark grey insert? I think that would look hot, especially considering the color of your ride! [up]

hum... black leather with dark grey alcantara. yummy. but about the alcantara on the steering wheel and boot? also dark grey?

Sure, why not? Maybe not the steering wheel, but I don't think it'll look out of place being black, where the other is dark grey. Just my opinion though...
