yes - be the envy of all those hot people getting into hotter cars after a day at the beach - drop them windows and vent your car. Works to wind them up when you lock up as well.

That should already be in the car, as it a standard thing to have. Maybe your's got lost. To be honest it isn't that useful:

aero wipers are great mine were 40 for all three from someone here.


us spec rear lights were 80 a pair


Posted Image not a great pic i know



Arent those the euro spec ones? Im pretty sure the US spec were darker? Where did you get them rear lights for that cheap mate? Cheers [y]



maybe, i get confused with them, I prefer the white ones on a dark car, I got them from ebay.de


 


ya those are the ocean tails and not the US GTI/R32 tails....


 


i did the brillo pad/door handle mod to get the brushed look. came out quite well.

You need the help of someone with a vag-com setup. Cost me 20 from Kalu, but he is based in Hemel Hempstead. We all had ours done at the Bluewater meet  - Kalu did a good job and left minted! You will need to search around, or put out a shouty on here for someone local to you.
