Thank you :) , it hasn't got a sun strip its just a genuine Performance VW sticker :mrgreen:

hahah smart tints at pride park are crap looking good ben

Cheers Jamie saw yours the other day its looking good :thumbsup: when are you having air fitted?

How did you removed the cover? thanks

To remove the dials cover there's one screw under the inside of the cover once that's out then simply pull the outer cover towards you, then to remove the inner piece there's just another three screws :)
