Good, point, oh well - it went for £161.00

Still a good price!

That was some last minute sniping going on there - wonder what the price would have been if you hadn't posted the link?

Bit nuts of the seller not to put "mini" in the item title though - doh...

Can't believe I didn't bid... glad I didn't now though. One Works seat would look odd imho...

Didn't the real early seats come without the logo embossed on them?

They were actually just leather covered Sparco's.... wonder if the owner originally only had the one seat, then decided to by the other, and realised that they wouldn't be the same?

One on its own would look odd, especially for me as I have the Lapis blue leather interior. Would have been ok with all black...

Yeah but if you bought it for under £200 it would make the pair nice and cheap.

I wasn't going to post the link but I thought you needed to know ;)

I bowed out at £110 :eek:

Probably would have looked rather odd with only one anyway :rolleyes:
Even if you buy another one full price, that's still a nice saving. I was tempted but it seemed too good to be true.

Rule number one of Ebay... "if it seems too good to be true.... it usually is".

I'm with you on that one. To be honest I'm not that big a fan of the Works seats, I didn't find them that comfortable. These are the seats I'm after:


Konig K5000 - They're the ones in the R32, now they're comfy.:D

He also had a full stainless handcrafted exhaust system that went for £50....

Would have bought it but I'm a bit strapped this month ;)
