I've been browsing the forum for a while now and feel like I should probably stop lurking and just post already. Also the further I read, the more 'unavailable threads' are starting to be a pain!

So far I've sound-proofed the rear bed & walls with Silent Coat and foam. Fit a rear spoiler, side rail cover, and heko wind deflecters. Surprised me how a few simple bits can make such a difference!

Also got hold of some Mk6 GTI rims.
Getting all the cast-offs is one benefit of having a friend with a golf lol.

On the to-do list is;
• Carpet the rear
• Personal Plates
• Front Splitter
• Reverse camera
• Seat swap, or just covers for now
• Tint the windows & lights
• Colour code the back & side plastics
• Remap
• Suspension

I have edited your post to show the photo.
When using IBB you need to copy and paste the "BBCode".

I've also got the front splitter sitting in my living room ready to be fit. Just waiting on a few extra hands.

Love those seat covers, but can't justify £300 as it's my work horse.

Yeah that's fair. I work in a design office so I've only got the van for tax reasons, at most I'll have my lunchbox in the back lol.

I'll eventually swap in some heated seats when I can muster the effort to sort out looms & heater controls, but for now I thought seat covers would be the easier option.

Fitted the front splitter this morning.

I thought seat covers would be the easier option compared to fitting other seats, and for £250 I don't think they look too bad.
Dude, this is some sick seat covers. Where does one find these? links?
Im from South Africa with a mk4 caddy, but we dont have half the cool things Europe has. :cry:

We buy the items and then have to pay roughly the same at customs(basically paying double). Its a nightmare. :mad:

I use to ask the sender to tick the box as a gift.... no customs. That still exists I think.
