    THX guys.

    @ Passatboy 101
    Sadly it´s no real CF. I mentioned before that it´s "Water- Transfer-Print".
    Real CF isn´t affordable for me.
    Nevertheless is it a 1000 USD meh

    it is simply something like Oracal with СF design?
    and what's about high temperature from the engine?

    Sirs

    Soooooo.
    Been a little bit busy



    New (used) seats (leather/alcantara) and door cards (leather) for the Variant:


















    Door cards and seats are coming from a B5, so i have a set of B 5.5 leather door cards left over (i bought them a few weeks ago )
    Personally i found the B5 doorcards more pretty, they have bolsters which the B5.5 havn´t.
    The rear seats have three 3-point seatbelts now but sadly no armrest anymore. I can get over it
    The seats aren´t heated, but there´s no need for, because of my blue-heat


    I replaced the genuine armrest cover by a custom made (on my own ).
    The bolstering was way to little , so i added 10mm foam and tailored a piece of nappa leather


    You can see the difference:










    And of course you can feel it
    Waaaayyy more comfortable


    THX for looking

    It´s done this way:

    https://www.passatworld.com/forums/sh...&postcount=222


    Real CF is very pricey, so this is a compromise i can live with.
    Nevertheless it´s a 1000 US$ compromise (engine and battery bay only)
