GTI Sport Cloth ========> GTI Leather!!!!

So for those of you that remember a thread I posted long ago (that's yesterday), I was asking about swapping my cloth interior for leather. Well it turned out I did!
I got a full complete leather interior from a 2001 GTI, including all door panels, all seats and headrests (minus one), armrest and the e-brake cover. It was offered to me by GolfGLSGirl yesterday, and the deal was so sweet I finally couldn't resist my 2 year lived temptation for leather seats. I picked them up today and I've been installing them until now. Had to share. The install was very easy and completely plug and play.
Here are my new leather seats as originally designed for me in their living room by a very friendly couple with a very cool Golf, GolfGLSGirl and Yzerman:

A little sneak peak of them installed in my car. It was dark so the pics are bad, sorry:

Anybody wants sports cloth in very good condition?

My comments
The look is incredible and the car looks unbelievably upgraded and higher-scale. They are very comfortable and add a nice touch to my car.
BUT - they are less comfy for sporty driving. The leather slides a bit more than cloth and they are less bolstered on the sides. But hey, you trade a little inconvenience for something great huh?
Thanks a lot Nat and Mike! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

HA. That's 3rd "trbo-gti" with a different spelling here! Welcome buddy!
One thing I forgot : DAMN! The armrest is squeezed between both seats so it squeaks like a flamin chicken...
But I still love my new leather!

Nice leather, just wait for a hot 30+ degree day and embrace yourself before you sit on the BBQ black seat!!!
