They look great, but pricing seems a bit odd? £45 for big pillars and £140 for tiny sunvisors?

Oh I see, pillars are covers and sunvisors are actual units and require yours in exchange.
Tempted on the A pillar covers

I've a set of A pillar covers en-route.
Thought the visors were a bit steep tbh, especially for exchange items.

Hi all,

Thanks to all that have purchased the A&B pillar trims, look forward to seeing them fitted. Any problems please message on our socials or email sales@retroretrims.co.uk

Hope to have some fitted pics up online in the next week or so.

We now also have gear gaitors, and Touran armrest trim covers available online; http://retroretrims.co.uk/trimshop/en/30

The price for the sun visors is due to the materials used and the labour involved they take +4 hours to make including the hand stitching, Chris did trial some velcro closures that we could have posted for DIY fit but they weren't up to scratch.

So I got one side done tonight.
They are a good fit .
It was fairly tricky to do, I'd say I spent a good hour on one side.
To make up, by some sort of miracle, the pillar went back on first go 😯

One tip.
I put a bit of washing up liquid where the a pillar meets the dashboard, as it was a bit tight( or maybe the glue was a bit fresh) but it wrinkled up the first time I tried it.ImageImageImageImage
