Exactly the same ad.

That half-leather with the 'quattro' cloth is the bit I like. Saw a set in a
wrecked 20v yesterday (stored outside, windows missing, no tarp or cover) my
good offer (good for an A1 set, very good considering that its suffered all
the elements can throw at it for at least 6 months) offer for the interior
was turned down because the owner wants to see what it turns out like after
a deep valet then he'll decide if its worth putting in his quattro.
