Yes, as the pictures show the switches have red illumination as opposed to green in the Skoda.
That said, the Skoda is plentiful in the breakers.. W8 Passat, not so much!!

So, my cheapest mod is the lamp....
My best mod, the one I'd find hardest to live without, is cruise control.
With the DSG box, it makes covering distances so much easier!

two leather audi seats for £20 (had to use some steel to fit them though)

they need a good clean so ive put the seat covers back on for now.

it feels wierd though as there lower than the caddy seats

Mine is a false floor in the back. I simply used the existing floor and raised it by making legs from a sheet of 3/4 ply and some 2x2. Brilliant for stuffing surfboards and clutter underneath and keeping the floor clear for sleeping or carrying loads etc.

@Lembot85
My air vent surrounds turned up today, are they an easy fit? Anything you know that will make the job easier?
Cheers
