Small update, finally fitted the rear deflectors tonight, sorry about the quality, light was going and only had the iphone with me.











Unsure on the rear ones and I can see the stickers coming off them before the weekend. Just got to wait 12hours before I can open the window to test them

Done a few more little mods today as the major ones have been put off until I get the rust done by VW (should be talking to them next week hopefully)

Climate rings (easiest mod ever  :signLOL: )



And change the wiper stalk to the later/mk6 style to match my cruise stalk as it was bugging me having 2 different colours:



Everything cleared and nothing broke which is a miracle for me, lol. The only thing is now I have some rubbing between the steering wheel and the plastic behind, not sure why but will have to sort it if it doesn't go away on its own

I had the same problem with the rubbing, I had not clipped the cover on correctly, so it pushing it out a very slightly.    Had to take it all off again!

Lol, that's due to poor light, iPhone and the car needing a serious clean

Nah looking like end of July for that, I want to get the warranty work done first and then I'll get the rest done

....I think that on your blue car the ClimAir stickers suit it very well indeed. I guess that one cool option might be to only remove the blue ClimAir stickers off the front windows. If you are removing, then try that first before deciding to remove them all.

I'm glad to see that rear ones bow the same as yours - It's just not what I expected. They work brilliantly - Natural air recirculation, who needs aircon! And no more sounding shadowed by a low flying helicopter when the sunroof is open.
