I'd better mention that you can't fit side windows to the short wheelbase, only the Maxi. Check out 'side window woes' on Exterior Mods to see why

There's rear seats only for £950 with certificate. But theres much more to it than that if you want a fully finished interior.
Rear carpets are very expensive, then you have the issue with removal of bulkhead leaving a gap. If you want Vw parts for that its £300, then there's the scuff plates and rear seat belt covers etc.
After all that you'll probably want to sound deaden and line it all out. Sirus do offer a full package but obviously it's going to cost you loads but you are paying for a lot of convenience.

I think it's worth going there to have seats fitted, and when you get there you will probably be offered things like carpet/trims and centre console etc to take home and fit yourself as I was. I've kinda done mine as cheap as I could to a good standard and saved a heap of cash no doubt. But it's still not quite finished off due to money/time constraints over the past year.

I think sirus do offer a very worthwhile service. It's alot of work to do it all yourself but I'd probably have a 4-5 grand bill if I got sirus to do it all as I have done it and I think I've spent just over 2k ish to do mine.

I paid £950 inc vat last year. Then another £200 cash for a rear carpet with footwell stowage, a life center console, scuff plates and getting the speed limiter taken off with VCDS

Still had plenty of work to do myself and buying more parts/materials.

Have you seen the size of the place and the amount of vehicles. It's on an industrial scale. Having a vehicle in one of those bays has to be financially viable, and the fact that you can have that kind of work done at those prices is pretty good and good for the environment aswell it's a win win situation.

You should try having a go yourself, I have just done a rear seat conversion and it only cost me £412. Plus a few beers to have the seat belt mounting points made at a local engineering company.
That’s everything carpets, seats, belts, plastic trims and mounting bracket from vw.

The vw panel £52.00 part no. 2K0 802 277
That’s the panel you need to mount the new front part of the seats after drilling out the old floor pan.

Then all the rest was a buy from a local scrap yard, front and rear carpets, side plastic trims, 2x outer seat belts, seats them selfs, all fixings, clips and bolts. Lad was fantastic in the scrap yard. He gave me everything possible and some extra stuff he thought I might need.
I did the seats over 2 days over 2 different weekends, the only problem I came across was the outer seat belt mounting points. This I had a local engineering company make some new bolts with sleeves so I didn’t crush the original chassis box section and was possible to mount to look factory.

There you go mate
All self fitted, all parts from caddy life, only had to make side lower seat belt fixings so they where in stock place and safe. Cost £412 inc front and rear carpets, seats, belts and then the retrim on top. I have loads of pics if needed. Just let me know if you need any help.
