    Just a thread to see if there is any interest in getting some panels made up by a motorsport supplier,who may be interested in doing some work for us,if the numbers are sufficient.
    Right now,I can't give any details on pricing or availability,as I would need to know likely numbers and what sort of panels would be most popular.

    Sounds good...if it comes off,these would be properly made(and I imagine therefore not cheap...LOL) by a current motorsport supplier,and we're trying to get interest from here and VAGOC,as well as other forums to try and put something together.

    I would love a carbon tailgate, but I think the currency conversion + shipping across the pond will price it out of feasibility for me. :(

    If we can generate enough interest then we can get something going so the more the merrier.

    I'd be shocked if there isn't a lot of people who would want them.

    That's what I'm hoping!....a number of us over at VAGOC are very keen to get this going,and if we can get more interest,then we can put together a good proposal to the company concerned and maybe get a decent price for a range of parts.

    Rear diffuser, one that can be a replacement for the stock one. Also if possible, if it had practical properties, rather then just cosmetic would be a huge bonus! :) along theses lines.... ImageUploadedByTapatalk1360505810.252789.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1360505822.982719.jpg

    I'd definitely be interested in the B pillar covers, and maybe some other interior parts.
    Would love a diffuser and bonnet but they may be a tad expensive for now.

    I thought something with deeper fins would be not only useful but a bit more purposeful loking.

    That actually goes underneath the the rear to give some actual diffusing properties? Like this?

    Yes...bit like any of those....the stock one I think tends towards the cosmetic rather than effective,but the only wind tunnel I have is my mouth.....

    I'm interested in a bonnet,
    If they can get it to click to the standard mechanism don't fancy big bonnet clips on the surface.

    The only issue there is that with these being pretty light(that's the point really) bonnet clips are likely to be neccessary...you can get very nice flush mounted one likes this.... Aerodynamic panel fasteners from Aerocatch

    They seem ok,
    But need to look for some lockable ones, else someone can open the bonnet and help themselves to my induction kit and £200 forge DV

    Would be interested in interior, such to replace the (scratched) piano black gear surround and door handles with.

    Thanks guys...to be fair,I think this will be aimed at the larger panels,but I can see if there's any will for interior parts as well.

    You're a youngster compared to me...LOL

    The Aerocatch fasteners are actually almost unnoticeable to be honest,and I'd be OK with those.

    Would be interested to know price on carbon bonnet, doors and wing mirrors.
    Does anybody know if anyone does a wide arch body kit that would be suitable for the race car? Fibre glass or carbon.

    I'd say the car is too high off the ground to have any real effectiveness. If you got it low enough you would just rip it off when driving on the road, it's a bit pointless.

    This is the sort of thing you will need if you want it to be effective:

    I'd say a front splitter would be far more use, but the same thing applies - it would have to be low and wouldn't be suited to road use.

    All three would be excellent, depends on price really. Already have the OSiR full carbon bonnet in mind. Is there the poll on vagoc Alex, didn't see it.
