As the title suggests
Been to look at this today
Very clean and straight
Mountune exhaust
One previous owner I think from Portsmouth or that area
Only down side is seat bolstering is worn
Thanks for any advice

I think it’s just someone just don’t care
Getting in and out sliding over the bolster
The lower one the rest are good
@Mr Angry Just a thought, but if they were to buy that car the two front seats could be switched. In that way the worn bolster would be on the inside and a very new one on the outside of the driver seat.
Worth considering?

It’s on both seats
Annoyingly it clear someone didn’t care and it shows the slid over the bolsters
My guess it has been a daily use car with kids
We have a body shop that also specialise in re trimming
Their usual business is with super cars so I guess they are pretty good
Not ideal but it’s a thought

The bolsters wear pretty easily, even if you are careful. I'm afraid it's normal wear and tear with those seats - the quality of the leather is not particularly high.

I'd be more concerned about the rest of the car - a worn driver's bolster can be repaired if required.

@ChrisCh You're absolutely right. You have to be so very careful every time you get in and out of the car with the shell seats. Such a shame because they're brilliant when a spirited drive is on the cards.
