Not a fan then no. They were on the car when I bought it. The colour works with black and they are very easy to clean. They are not what I would have chosen myself but they will be fine till I get something nicer. I did want Monza shadows but this had better history and leather has no wear.

That would have been my first job getting them off

Decide to do something about the sagging bonnet liner, The cost of a replacement is mental at 100 quid a pop, so I spent 2 quid on bamboo canes, split them in halves, padded the ends, cut to lengths so they couldn't fall out and where they crossed I used cable ties, it's no work of art but very tidy and saved 98 quid. also, Ambered the fog lights with film looks good on carbon grey. And my black rear VW boot badge has carbon infills.

Hi Borbus, have messed about for an hour with uploading and found it too confusing, I'm computer illiterate, but send your e-mail and I'll send you a couple of  photos'

Fitted a new VWR Racingline panel filter , removed the snow guard and the K & N filter that had been in the car. I also successfully cleaned the top of the filter which had rust on it , and had been annoying me for some time everytime i had the bonnet up. I had bought some 3mm brass wire wheel brushes on Ebay and used them with a cordless drill. I was very pleased with the results.
I have also got some Skoda Yeti sports exhaust tips to go on the car when the weather improves a bit.
