Scirocco seats picked up for the van. Got touran based for them too. See the before and after the came up like new. Just to fit them now
Seats and based costing €140 so should be a nice cheap upgrade

Do I need to just get an adapter for the air bag loom for these to work? Seats are not electric ImageImageImageImage

Alloys are 18x8 et45. Tyres are 225/45. Went with the bigger wall for load rating

Ok, the 18"'s looks really good with that slightly higher profile to me.

Awesome project vans looking well , I like the wheels , fairly sure j saw that VW scirocco in the scrap yard, must have been doing some serious off road action it was covered in mud!
Good price on the seats pity the window was open!

The stance coilovovers are decent enough I have them on over a year on my yoke, the front anyway but the rears are very soft I changed them to adjustable ones,

The rear shackle kit will not pass the crtv you will need it signed off my a engineer or change it back and forth , it's about a 2h swap job then off the next day .

Seat are ideal for a while. Preferably want gti/gtd ones but hard to come by and find ones that don't cost a fortune!
Is it expensive to get the engineer to sign off on it do you know?
