Mk5 VW Golf GTi Brushed Aluminium Trim Wanted

8 posts in this topic

Hi, have just bought a MK5 GTI and noticed that the passenger side door has different trim to the rest of the car, its a mat silver, the rest of the car is brushed aluminium.

Has anyone got the piece of trim I need in brushed aluminium or know where I could get one from?

Cheers!

Without wanting to sound obvious, have you tried the stealers parts department? There are various independant suppliers around such as VW Parts +++

Ok, will do. No idea how much one would cost or how easy it would be to fit though. Cheers!

....You need some of those blue plastic tools. Being German, the trim is strongly attached!

Oh, and take care not to lose any of the sleeves as you refit.
