hi ben

Love the seat covers.

Just wondering are they a nice tight fit and how do they fit? elasticated or zips?

Van coming together keep up the good work, looks the part

Yeah they're a snug fit, definitely measured to fit the factory seats rather than just generic baggy covers.

The top half is zipped and the bottom half is held in with straps, a draw string, and a few clips that again look very specific to only fit the stock seats.

They're not exactly cheap, but definitely easier than sourcing and fitting different seats & bases.

Thanks for the interest!

Fitted the final piece on my list for engine bay related bits.. until the list grows again 🙃


First and foremost!
I had the van remapped with a stage 1 revo map, thought I'd take advantage of their 20% discount for Nov/Dec. Going from 102ps to ~190ps is night and day, definitely worth the money!


In an attempt to silence the diesel noises, I've fitted;
(Excuse the dirt!)

• Under bonnet insulation - 2K0 863 831 A
Image

• Engine cover - 04L 103 925 (would've rathered a VW one but this was such a good price. Only difference is the badge)
• 2× ball mounts - 04L 103 164
• O-ring for oil cap - 04L 133 287
Image

• Engine undertray - 1K0 825 237 AG
(I think this is from a mk5/6 golf or something, but it fits perfectly)
Image


Then some miscellaneous bits;

• Replaced the factory halogen H4's with some Nighteye LEDs. Stated to be canbus error free and so far they've been fine - had them for a bout 2 weeks with no errors so far.

• Tried to change the standard wiper jets for fan/mist ones - 5M0 955 985, but they were utter pants and didn't create any pressure. Maybe I just got bad ones from Ebay, might revisit it at a later date with actual OE parts.

• Wiper bolt caps - 1J0 955 205 A 9B9
(Pretty sure these are a generic part that fit a multitude of cars)

• Scuttle tray bungs - ebay special (no part number)

If you pull the badge off that engine cover you’ll find a VW badge underneath.

@ngc yeah it's plastic mate 👍

@barbel330 That's what I thought when I bought it, but the skoda badge is actually a part of the moulding 😓 I tried heating and prying at it, then flipped it over and saw the reverse of the skoda badge in the moulding haha
