Does anyone know how to remove the LED vanity mirror light that sits above the sun visor? My drivers side lamp unit is loose and doesn't illuminate so want to remove as reckon it's just not plugged in....

Got the rest of my roof wrapped black, happy out with it.


Also bought these sill plates off EBay, they are good quality and look well I think.

I think you’ve found the perfect angle to photograph the mk8 Golf from - yours looks really good in your picture, and I think the combination of white car, black roof and Estoril alloys works well :cool:.

That black roof looks great Kgti8 and the whole car is stunning.  I've just had my bog standard white CS delivered today. 

I can't tell from the pics but would I be right to assume the black wrap stops short of the rear spoiler?

Hey Bill there is nothing bog standard about the CS, it's a superb car without any options.
None of the options are going to improve the performance it's very well specced out of the factory.
Even the DCC isn't going to improve performance just alter it.
Enjoy your new car as it is and let's have a pic of it.

Here you go mate.  I agree with you that the CS is a bit special as it is.  Just need to get those wheels changed.  😉

The more I see of the standard wheels, the more I think they look fine.
