Hi - two great looking cars. The breaker is fantastic!

Tried to PM you but since I'm pretty new around here I can't... I have a GTI with the cream interior too but it has a factory fit mobile phone holder which has been fitted to the cream trim around the glove box - don't suppose you still have that part and if so how much??

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave, I hope all is well?

Thanks, appreciate the kind words, the steel grey one is rough around the edges and had nearly double the mileage, it was fairly well spec'd though, so she lives on in my tornado Golf. I do indeed, I'm open to offers, I have whatsapp if you want to contact me there? 00353877641555

Regards Gerrit,

Hi Dave, I haven't received a text from you? Are you sure it sent?

Got around to darkening the honey comb grilles yesterday, over due big time! Took apart the front grille and fog inserts and gave them a coat.

Got a new set of plates the other day. No real update apart from that.

Last thing on my list before the remap is a Rs4 relief valve and hpfp, so should have these in the next few weeks all going well.

Looking good Gerrit!

How did you blacken the plastic inserts?

Mine could do with some TLC.

Thought about VHT black gloss but was worried about flaking.

Cheers Luke, I'll dig out the stuff I used, can't remember the name. I use it for all the grilles on my cars, great stuff!!

Surprised to hear that tbh


On another note, I have these for sale if anyone's interested. I can courier them too. 1000 Euro
