Started carpeting back of the van. One side done now. Truly awful job to do and takes forever to do it on your own.

@audi5inline It's there since I removed it from underneath. Considering to get a space saver and fabricate some sort of bracket, so I can bolt it to the bulkhead :roll:

@audi5inline It's an awful place for the spare wheel, I can't imagine myself laying on the ground in the rain and trying to remove that spare wheel :lol:

Love those lights. I need some for mine but struggling to find what to go for. Are they smoked and did you go for the LHD version to keep the 2 x reverse lights?

I mostly just drove it today, since I got it new on saturday! It's a 1.2 TSI maxi version, so I still have to get used to driving such a 'big' car.. :lol:

Loving it so far!

Things I would like to change in the future are:
  • New rims
  • Add cruise control
  • New ICE unit, for using google maps, google assistant and phone calls
  • MFSW (would it also be possible to just add a MFSW and code in the cruise control?)
  • New leather seats
