    Hi.
    What are the door skins made from on a B7?
    I've just washed mine for the first time, and they seemed to push in as though they were plastic. Is this the case?
    Cheers

    The skin's are a hard wearing plastic then covered with cloth or if you are the luck one's a nice drop of leather

    Cheers mate. Never noticed it on B6. Is it just a B7 thing? Makes it less prone to dents in the car parks I suppose.

    CMD you've gotten it totally wrong

    Door skin is obviously the exterior door metal work.

    The inner panel is called the door card. . . . .

    @ MK2 Golf 24v I stand corrected. I should know the difference by now as i spend my time detailing car's. (note to self only use the Rotary's and DA's on the out side of the car and not the inside).. My Bad
