    Sounds very cheap. the strips on the door cards are stuck on iirc. You can remove them and glue them back on.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    You have a facelift so the door cards will be different , so your only option is to move the leather part of the door card over. They are rivetted on , so you need to cut the top part of the rivet off and then glue or plastic rivet them back on.
    I do hope you have bought a hatch interior if you have a hatch , because saloon interiors dont just transfer across...which I found out.
    As for value , it wont make the car worth anymore but will make it more desirable especially if you wire the heated seats and electric memory if you have that.

    Sgould be able to change the wood, have done on mine. That is a great price for leather. adds more selling potential rather than an increase in value

    If you have a hatch and the leather is out of a saloon its not disasterous , you can move the leather part of the seat across and the same with the bolsters , but you cant put hatch seats into a saloon (not enough leather)
