Very nice job! And a lot of useful information concerning OEM part numbers. Thanks for that!

Installed the 'life' dashboard trim inserts, hopefully the last piece for the interior .. unless I go mad and try trimming the dash 🥲

Part no's: 2K6858065BJP9 (passenger) / 2K6858066BJP9 (driver)
This is for the standard/cheapest option - "brushed". There's about 20 other colour options but the price increases dramatically.

Ordered from lllparts, as they were nearly half the price of VW. Quality seems great, but delivery took over 2 weeks when it was advertised at 3-5 days 😅

Upgraded the intake to Darkside's full induction kit:

Also swapped the OEM charge pipe to Darkside's own kit:

The turbo seems to spool louder and feels slightly more responsive, maybe? .. could very well be placebo though 🙈

Was in the main dealership this morning and they told me this is the wrong part number and both numbers are the same part?

Ah sorry, my mistake - one of the numbers should be 65 and the other should be 66. I'll amend them now!

My quote from VW direct was 40% more expensive than LLLparts, £249 from VW vs £159 from LLLparts.

I've seen quite a few people doing this on their golf's to improve intake temps when using the stock airbox.
So thought I might as well try turning what's left of my stock intake into a sort of 'cold air feed' 🤷

Started by dremelling-out the moulded closed sections on the right side of the intake cowl and the grille trim infront of it, so air can enter the cowl directly from the right side.
Image

Then bought the OEM trim piece that blocks the opening on the left side of the intake cowl, forcing air towards the airbox instead of allowing it into the engine bay (5Q0-129-849).
Image

Also had a go at trimming the airbox lid into a sort of shroud, might help funnel the air better into the cone but mainly it just looks a bit tidier than an open airbox.

nice mod for the induction kit and agree on the spoil time and sounds as I fitted one on my 1.6 a couple of weeks ago. Seemed to use a fair bit more fuel though so taken it off to see if it was just me.....or I was driving everywhere faster due to the sounds lol

I'm just about to order the darkside induction kit/charge pipe.
Like the idea of using what's left of stock air intake to channel.

Good idea that
