    I've got the wood trim in my 3 door 2005 (i didn't spec it) and want to change to silver or black but the kits dont seem that readily available from the usual places (ebay etc)

    Can anyone recommend an aftermarket option or somewhere to find original parts?


    cheers :icon_thumright:

    hens teeth on ebay as you have noticed. As said Vagparts but they are NOT cheap, nearly £300 for the silver s-line parts.

    the bits just clip out so you can replace them, but it'll be expensive.
