Thats great, just need to find a reasonably priced decent one on fleabay.

Re: Changed my speedo for a digital one

I've sold ones like that. They are half real leather but the more modern ones are much nicer. 300 should get you a good set. I sold my last set for 200.

I love the way they were "dumped on the ground" and then asked for 250 for them, OK the ground was dry but would not have taken much to place them on a clean surface and given them a clean, probably add 30 if they had? Just me being picky?

You should see the state of some of the seats I have bought. I have bought them cheap and they have taken me a couple of hours to bring them up clean but well well worth it. They are rarely clean as they are often stored in someone's garage.

Clubitalia on ebay has messaged me that he has a full black leather interior for 300 + 45 postage. On a side issue do all the fiat 500 seats have the storage compartment in the passenger one?

Re: Changed my speedo for a digital one

I have one if you need it. As long as you can remove the bottom seat pad and it has the holes to take the frame of the tray.
