Looks brilliant! Im thinking about doing my trim panels in Alcantara, did you use the stretchy stuff? Have done my headliner in it, and was going to leave at that... but as I'm putting the Interior back together I'm thinking how good it could look with a lot more of the stuff :lol:

Nice! Those mk4 side repeaters make a huge difference I think for such a small mod... Planning to fit them to mine

Yes, also dynamic ones. For perfect fitting, need cut a original indicator hole , because mk4 indicator stays equal to fender, now had a 3-4 cm gap, but still looks better than old ones.

From garage.. tried to fit bbs , opinion - for sale (and now sold) With these, car looks older ... so bought other ones, from radi8

Looks brilliant!

How does the trunk soundproofing work? What did you plan to soundproof next?

Now only trunk door. But in progress with whole van. Now did all roof, all trunk (floor and sides), front panel and one side floor. Tomorrow will do other side floor and soundeading will be done. Also bought worst condition front and rear black carpets, which now i cleaned and they are ready to install.

One more modification - alcantara headliner and front side plastics near window. Looks really luxury, now ordered oem black clips.

Also did touran dashboard retrofit. With this came soundeading under panel and now doing alcantara trims :)

A few photos, more will be soon :)
