    Personally oem is far better.

    Plenty come up on ebay, it's a common retro fit.

    The lids are easily interchangeable. I'm trying to find the invoice for my lid, but from memory it was about £85. If I find it, I'll post the part number, but bear in mind it will be specific to the interior colour. Mine is black leather, how about yours?

    Found it. This was in July 2011, by the way. The part number for my leather lid is A8E0 864 245 AE 1HT, and it cost £68.09 plus VAT, That works out as £81.71 with the VAT included.
