It's only rail cover, you will need the rail and other bits to do it properly.

You can buy the rail cover for less than that from your VW parts desk.

Seen that seller on ebay a couple of years ago. Doc is right that they are a lot cheaper to buy from VW dealer. That is what I did and probably many others. There is also other VW parts on ebay that sellers put a big markup on but in reality are a lot cheaper to buy direct from dealers parts dept.
However there is also bargains to be had as well on ebay. Research, price up before buying and you can't go wrong, well most of the time anyway. :lol:
