Fitting information

This is a great gadget! It allows you to roll up and roll down the windows from the remote key using combinations of key presses.

Mk4 Golf Sunglasses Holder

Such a useful little thing - directly replaces the drivers side grab handle.
I intended to paint this to match the headlining but I ended up buying four matching handles and replacing the lot so they all match!
I bought mine from Awesome

Rear Interior Lights

 

Bonnet Lifter gas struts

I've been wanting some of these for ages but I'm too tight to pay for the expensive ones. Well I found these from this Ebay Seller. They're for a Mk3 Golf and with a small amount of bending with my fixing hammer they fit perfectly!

Update! One of the gas struts failed after about 12 weeks :( Replaced with some better quality ones from here
