I know the vienna leather in my MkV GTi was not all that good, in comparison to my 130i..

I think the MK7 R has 2 leather options, one being standard leather at around £1,700 and Carbon leather at around £2,400.

The leather in my Rocco is much better than the leather that was in my R32. The latter had the Recaros and the quality wasn't that grest and some of it was leatherette.

:blink: That's a lot of money to put leather in what is quite a small car?

Can you get Alcantara in the R like you can in the S3?

 

Having had leather seats and then alcantara seats I have to say I prefer the half alcantara in terms of grip - the dog prefers it too!

WTF is 'Carbon' leather?

Sounds horrible and artificial.

I might have misread it. It looks like it's a package which combines nappa leather and carbon interior trim

Ahh, that sounds infinitely more appealing than leather that's been made to look like carbon!

Do people still do that??

Pick up at midnight, drive it home and go to bed...or have a lie in Saturday and get it lunchtime, nobody is the wiser +++

I saw my first 14 plate Audi 3 weeks ago... (I have a filling station opposite a big Audi dealer, they brought a car in for a top up as part of a PDI, complete with new plates)

In 2008 we had an a6 delivered on 31st August so it could be driven at midnight. Beats sitting in a dealer

Having a set of trade plates is very handy for new car collection!

I saw numerous 14 plate cars leave the dealership today (technically yesterday, 28th feb) while I was at Audi. Are people allowed to drive them on the 28th?

300 miles already. Picked up at midnight, tucked it away overnight and hit the road early today.

Seriously quick bit of kit.
