Thanks for the part numbers [mention]Beaker2135 [/mention] will definitely look into it.

I also seen the below on the online parts viewer but unfortunately it doesn’t give any part numbers.

Tourans came with plastic trys underneath, and the floot has little self-tapping like studs on, then plastic nuts hold it on.

At least the front half should be the same. On a Touran it finishes at the back of the rear footwell, and the fuel start starts.

You sure Caddys don't have the the studs?

Studs just vissible here, at the bottom of the pic, between the heat sheild and the brace under the floor:

Yeah the caddy has the studs; but in the SRS thread they are bolted and not held on with plastic nuts (hence why I said they look to have drilled the floor.
I’ll have to have a look at the layout of them.

Collected all my painted parts today (new side skirts and front bumper).
I’ve had the bumper off for over 12 months now and last May I bought and fit a genuine Oettinger lower spoiler and splitter. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea (and to be honest took me a while to get used too while it sat on the garage floor); but I just wanted to make it a little different as the MK7.5 GTi bumper was just getting far too common IMO; but now it’s painted I’m loving it.
I did consider removing it entirely after having issues a few times but decided to redo it and stick with it.
When fitting I was quite shocked that Oettinger rely totally on the adhesive to hold it in place, this didn’t seem right so I added some spacers each side so hopefully if/when it comes into contact with the tarmac it will take it a little better, but we will see I suppose.

Finally finished

[mention]Lister79 [/mention] I actually really like how that front bumper looks. It makes a change to see something t slightly different and unique to yourself. I can’t wait to see the whole thing fully built back up on the road. Hats off to you buddy smashed it out the park every time

I agree ^^ I think the lip looks brilliant and finishes the bumper off really well.

I like the look of it I bet it looks even better on the van. Good shout on the extra fixings. My TRC splitter has pulled one of the bolts through the bumper skirt!
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is

Can only agree with all the comments. The bumper looks fantastic. Can't wait to see how it looks on the van.

Smashing it out the park. !!

Got the side skirts and front bumper fitted today. For the side skirts I used some some BMW E30 Mtech2 body kit edging rubber that I’ve had in my tool box for years, I think it finishes the upper edge off nicely. Also used some of the Caddy Alltrack sill mounts to fix some spacer blocks to, these support the skirts underneath.
Just a few more jobs to do and it will be done. Image
