I would use MK6 GTI seats, black leather with red seams...would fit perfectly with the steering wheel.

Cheers man, I miss yours too haha.. was always different.

This loop is absolutely beautiful! by far my favourite on the site!

Thanks bud & for seats.. no idea what to do still. I want most of the interior redoing with a few ideas I have, mainly trimming dash & all of the car plastics in alcantara to tie everything in but I'm completely lost for what seats to get. I keep changing my mind after being set on something.. I'm going to try and get it all done over winter.

However, the car's sat pretty much how I've wanted it now.. few photos from recent.

cheers for the nice comments you lot, I'm awful at checking back here to be honest!

got a pair of Recaro CS's retrimmed, few have prob already seen them. Can't wait to get them in & finish the interior off, looking to have a fair few other bits and bobs trimmed up to match the audio/seats.. I'll try update a bit more over the winter and make a few more shows next year. :)

Utterly insane. that is all.

Thankyou!!

Little update, seats are finally in. Sat pretty low and had some custom frames made so they're all working on the runners as they should, plus they sit as low as they can that way. Really happy, kinda feel they pull the interior together.

I think they sit low enough for me as they sit lower than my standard gti seats. I've had frames fabricated up for them with wheels welded on for in the runner which was what I meant. They sit on the floor pretty much, didn't explain myself too well lol.

Ok dude :) My A8's did all that too but perhaps the seat base is different than yours. I donno, they were a lot lower than original seats were but I felt like I was driving a freaking lorry :clap:

I've just read this through from page one, and I've decided that all I want from life is my GTI to look half as good as this! She is amazing!!

cheers for the nice comments..... it's been a while (i'm awful at build threads mainly post on Instagram (@KentGTI) if anyone's interested... took the car back down to studioincar for a month just after jan for some more upgrades, basically one of my Rainbow iPauls decided to die on me with it going into protect mode over certain volumes.. bought a replacement from Germany as that was the only place who had any stock as the amp was discontinued years & years ago... however it turned out to be problem after problem.. like seriously, so many problems.

Ended up taking the plunge and upgrading to Mosconi amps, which are a lot more powerful than the Rainbow ones, so now running 3 x Mosconi Gladen AS 100.2s & 1 x 200.2.. pretty tight squeeze though.

At the same time we added another set of mid-bass as wanted more of a punch & for it to be louder than previously, which obviously meant the lower door cards being completely rebuilt, with lighting built in & trimmed to match the rear this time. Also added a XS Power Audio battery, trimmed the iPad dash surround & t-piece in alcantara, dash binnacle trimmed, heater surrounds trimmed, had some rear side builds to cover where seatbelt/plastics were trimmed, slam panel plastic trimmed & a full system tune. So now the whole of the rear is trimmed in alcantara & it's silly loud, like seriously.

I sorted the BBS out after having a dish crack on me after Edition last year, so they're back on for now.. although currently planning on building the RS's this year, now have the right sized barrels I need just need to decide on colour and order dishes.

Struggling what else to write now, met up with Alex Carroll who's local to us for some photos & I'll post some from UD where I was lucky to make it inside on Players/Airlift stand (cheers).
