I just got done doing this mod (just the strips): http://www.b5one.com/howto/brushedalu.html :D I SHOULD ADD THAT THAT ISN'T MY CAR, JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA! You have to get the 1/4" strips. Very easy, just take your time and do it right! (30 minutes) I highly recomend this to anyone that wants to have that W8 look in the 1.8T! :thumbup: -God Bless!

sweet mod, always wondered about those chrome strips. Have you ever seen those vids showing how easy it is to steal a car with "the club?" might as well just leave it in the trunk.

I've been thinking of this for some time. Not sure about how the chrome strips goes together with the brushed alu. I did the "mgolz look" long time ago and like you said: I love it. Is there any way to brush down the chrome strip for a perfect match?

i GOT THEM ONLINE FOR $15 (20FT.) shipped to my door! I don't remember the web site-sorry, but you can get them from alot of places! They have 3M tape on the back. To prep you clean good w/ alcohol, cut to length,heat up door and strips, I put a DROP of super glue on the ends to help hold them for when you slam the doors. It looks like real aluminum too!! 8)
