Sir

Didn´t wanted to invest 300€ for a new radio, just for the MP 3 feature, so i bought the external player.
Now i had bad luck with my radio, getting damaged.
I found a Blaupunkt Acapulco for 32€ on ebay, so i paid 132€ total.

you can buy a radio with usb socket for much less than that! and a usb stick to use with it is like £5 lol, how much did you pay for the external player?

your car still ROCKS btw, if you have a minute could you fill me in on what types of bulbs the interior lights take, cos i want to change to LED like you. did you have to add resistors?

Sir

FYI:

I added two of those for the W8 map lamp

Four of those for the puddle lights:

As you see, there are different colours availiable.
They deliver worldwide AFAIK, and there are no additional resistors needed

Sirs


Because i´m on holiday this week, i had something to do what was waiting more than a year :lol:.

This parts were stored in my basement since then:

Inner wheel-wells coming from Audi S4:














Raw fittingly cutted with an angle grinder and an 1mm disc:






Laid on the original Passat wheel well and marked the outer shape.






Then cutted a hole ~ 25mm smaller than the marking (depends on the pre-cut)

Left:





Right:





Fixed together with seal & bond and rivets




Rivets are goin´ cheap these days :lol:




Installed:
Left:




Right:




I blacked the rivets with underseal. I also used black seal & bond.

Maybe a further needless mod, but it won´t endamage.
It´s for better ventilation of the OEM SMIC, and also the AC cooler on the passenger side.


Thanks for looking.

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 ;)
