Actually, they are vinyl . Any upholstery shop will have a selection. No worries.

Thanks - but how does it originally look like? Do you have a photo?

Hi Stefan.....is this what you are looking for this is fron my S2 not sure it its the same for a S3..i can see that it looks like you have trimmed useing leather which is quite thick and with the trim covering it could make the doors too tight to close..the trim in the photo with the herringbone patern is i think unavailable but there are other similar versions
Edit...for some reason i think the trim on the S3 had a more furry look

Not, I'm afraid, a very convenient supplier for Germany

Vinyl ("Titanfast") or furry ("Furflex") as preferred:

Neither...they are the wrong thing.....as they also have a rubber seal part attached....the best thing to do is contact one of the trimmers.. BAS ..Aldridge.... etc....and get them to send samples....either the vinyl type or the furry one....they will know what type your car should have....or you can send a sample of your colour so they can get the closest match
You need something like this called edge trims http://www.woolies-trim.co.uk/c-329-clo ... -trim.aspx

How bizarre! I thought I'd originally cut and pasted the same link as you - hence the accompanying text. Link now edited. Most odd.....
