    Took me much longer than I thought to sell my M seats a while ago, and that was with matching door cards.

    When I got my zed 3 years ago things like this were snapped up straight away, as I did when I saw the M seats I bought.

    We are watching to see the price get reduced. A set of M seats went for £308 on ebay last week.

    Wow, I held out and got way more than that for mine! I ran it as a "buy it now" with best offer. No way I was going to run it as an auction.

    I would say £400 was the going rate for just the seats.. That's what I bought and sold a set for

    I agree on the 400, as long as they are in good nick with no splits, and probably 300 for a set of sports seats with no splits.

    Oh how times have changed. Snapped my black M seats up for £550 2 years ago, and didn't even blink at the price.

    If those are the current 'market value' then I'm even happier with what I sold mine for.

    With resale values dropping so much in recent times, I'm not surprised that s/h parts are dropping also.

    But these parts are getting older, and it's not easy to find them in good condition.

    I'm currently looking for a set of sports seats, either all black, or black/blue without any splits. No luck so far, although Andy spursfan has some green/black ones we've been discussing

    Yes there is.

    But as you have been using the seats, we will only be able to refund you £250. Send me the seats and I'll get a cheque prepared for you. :)

    Sold my sports seats a couple of years ago for £350

    Picked up my M seats for just £250 :happy:

    These ones look in great condition compared to some, at the time they would have easily sold for the asking price a couple of years ago. They seem to come up fairly often now so can be picked up for a fairly decent price. They are definitely worth the money ;)

    Post dated cheque fine, in gold bullion though if you don't mind! :beer

    At the end of the day, you pay what they are worth to have them at the time, I certainly have no complaints, and I am still enjoying them today, no 1 best modification by far! :drinks:
