Hi all.

Just in case anyone's interested, I'm selling a NoS half-leather drivers' seat for a 2.8i special.

The auction starts at 19:00 tomorrow and ends the following Sunday.

Starting bid of £0.01, so you may grab a bargain!

Kind regards.

Hi,
Just curious (nosey, really!) weren't you ever tempted to fit the seat to use yourself? You must have bought it a good few years ago now.
Good luck with the sale, it's a very desirable item and I can see it fetching a good price.

Andrew.

Hi Andrew.

I did think about fitting it, but it would have made the other seats look a bit shabby by comparison!

I've since bought another interior that is in excellent condition, so I'll be selling my old interior in the next months or so.

Kind regards.

Just about everything looks shabby by comparison to that seat! It really is a truly lovely piece of kit. Looks like you're going to achieve a good price too. Good luck with the sale :)

Well call me Jenny the seat went for £741 I would never thought it would sell for that price . It was a great seat and condition but why are things going for such a lot of money .?

Unfortunately it's a buyers market. The rarer the item is the more expensive it becomes!.

:agree: Madness, but there you go.

If another one appears in that condition, It will more than likely be £800, now yours has set the benchmark.....

Well done anyway :)

Well, Jenny.....
I think in this case the buyers realise it really is their only opportunity to buy a NOS seat. I doubt another one will surface.
