The correct part number is 461 as per the link. 561 is a typo on my behalf

You can only see a tiny bit where it seems they used red stitching on the underside to join the piece of leather (?) together. It's not a double line on the top side like the usual 9N3 GTI one. I'll add a pic later

Cool! Well, if I choose to keep the car I might replace it.

<edit>OMG 82 eur, maybe leather paint is a cheaper option</edit>

Or maybe not! Paid for it, then they tell me that they actually don't have it! Found another one, then I messages them asking how much the postage would be, then they also tell me that they don't have it! Don't know why all these places say they have them in stock or put them up for sale, but they don't actually have any lol!

Anyway, I eventually found one, but with white stitching which I'll dye red. So what is the mod that you need to do to make them fit or not have problems with operating the button?

Sorry for the so late reply! Seem to have missed the notifications! Yes, I did find that new one, never got round to fitting it and am now selling the car so it's available if you still want it!
