Hi,

Want to replace some loom tape with VW OEM type if possible.
Can't find any like the original VW tape - diamond like surface effect made of stiffish woven plastic cloth.

???
Any sources ?
Ta.

I'd check with a parts dept first before paying that for the tape in case thats a typical ebay [3x] price! When you search "vw loom tape" you get quite a few options. There are lots of those sorts of tapes out there and maybe someone else can advise on the best brands to use.

Tesa is mostly used by VW and Coroplast too.
It all depends if it’s interior/exterior application you need it for? There’s few types of tapes used
