Dark lights look brilliant, something which I have thought about a few times myself.

Me too, keep looking for a set, made the odd bid but haven't yet done it. £250-300 just seems a lot for something I'm not going to see much of. But I do really like them :rolleyes:

The steering wheel adds a good 50bhp, apparently.

Looks good, a pricey mod?

You should definitely get the footrest, looks so much better than the std plastic one.. Stood out in your previous pics.

I know I'm biased but that looks great Ryan90GTI! I'm sure you will love the feel of the steering wheel.

I would also recommend the footrest, how it should have been from the factory in my opinion.

Right, that's it, I'm ordering a footrest.

Not sure whether to go black badges or not??

How hideously expensive is the Clubsport wheel/shifter?

Haha, that didn't take much convincing! I would personally leave the badges red but Jim put some black badgeskins ones on his previous GTI and they did look good.
