    Hey, basically I want to improve the interior of my mk1 LC. I've already changed the grey plastics and headlining for the black 'R' stuff I just wondered if the 'R' seats are a significant upgrade over the standard cupra ones...? I don't want full leather but would prefer a better seat. The VRS and S3 recaros look good but seem to go for a lot. So is it worth changing the standard cupra seats for the 'R' seats? Or wait until I find S3, VRS or R32 seats at a decent price?

    if you find the R seats (Recaro version) it's a great upgrade.

    If you find the standard R seats, only the covers change with basics seats, so not really interesting...

    Recaro version is more difficult to find and more expensive !

    Cheers for the replies guys, I didn't realise there were 2 different versions either.. I guess that's why some on ebay are 150 and others 400 plus! I thought te cheaper ones didnt look much different to standard..

    Yeah it's much nicer havin the interior all one colour.. On the facelift the cards and glovebox etc was already black, just the headlining and upper plastics were a grey colour, made a massive difference changing the plastics for black, seats aren't too bad just would rather have recaro..

    Brettyboy I like what you've done with the interior door handles, did you wrap them yourself? Mine are looking a old so this would be a great mod for me. Has the vinyl lasted, still look good?
