    I have it on my 97 2.8Q, but our B6 TDi has only a really feeble bit of exhibition carpet tacked to it, sounded like an oil drum when you closed the bonnet, so I Dynamatted the it and now its a nice reassuring thunk.
    I did try to find an aftermarket kit but gave up in the end.

    My 2000 TQS has it fitted, so you must be able to source it from a breakers.

    Both the 96 tdi and the 2000 se had it fitted and i managed to get it for £10 inc clips. Looks much better and does its job very well. A well worth mod in my opinion !!
