I think you're right @gazza31112 :D I like the look of them too once fitted. I just need to decide on stitch colour :roll: :roll: :lol: I've got yellow stitching in mine, so would want to keep the thread going :lol: :lol: excuse the pun

Ordering a set today probably get the gaiters done too
Don't know what color stitching to get tho lol its either red as I have a red feature (gti style) going on on the inside and planning to do few red touches on the exterior
Or white stitches to match the body color

I used Trimfix high temperature adhesive.
It's fairly tricky to get the stitching straight, but the material is quite stretchy

I think these look really good. However, I’d sooner stick pins in my eyes than attempt to refit those A pillar trims again. I ended up paying VW to re fit them in the end. Even the guy in the dealers said they were a nightmare!

Found it that bad? i thought they where okay. the B pillars were a lot worse.

Maybe im used to it from squeezing my hands into tight spaces on Aircraft for years.

Absolute nightmare mate.....probably a combination of poor technique and impatience
