    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Don't moan about the glovebox quattro badge. When my A4 turned up it didn't have one... or the one on the front .... or the rear .... or bloody quattro at all !

    Again, I have to say I'm with Olly P on this one. It looks great!

    what disappoints me though is that the glove box door seems to be the only bit of cheap plastic in the interior and it lets the side down some what!

    Thats because of that bloody badge...lol!!!!

    Dont get me wrong its cool and I actually polish it, to make sure its nice and shiney, but just recently on a route that I take the sun really blazes down on it, maybe I will try going round those bends a bit faster and see if that makes me feel any better

    maybe with those little legs your so low in the car it dazzles you... booster seat!?

    or you could go down the brushed ali look, get some scotchbrite pads and do some rubbing in parralel lines, i'm sure someone on here has done it to the door handles.
    It's all gone sensible now - Passat B6 140 tdi on the drive, saving a fortune on fuel though!
