Hi, this the third toy, and it is a ongoing project, slowly as it should...



mods that are already done:
  • Recaro S3 front seats, completely electrified as per factory
  • Rear sun shade (original factory extra)
  • BBS RW 18x8,5 et32 with 225/40R18 tyres
  • front brakes upgraded to 312mm
  • red NGK coils
  • side stripe :)

But car needed alot of engine maintenance, since most of the engine sensors where dead, and the engine was running like crap, but now it is running fine...


Also have some Ronal R7 18x8 et35 wheels, just in case...





Sport steering wheel, with the stainless steel pedal covers and footrest



The car is with Sport suspension installed from factory, and at the moment with some KYB shock absorvers, that are simply terrible, need to find a softer solution, since most of the interior plastics are breaking just with road vibration induced by the poor absorption of the shocks... Planning on Bilstein B4. Any other ideas?

Hi, they came from a Audi S3, platform 8L, because it is the same chassis of the New Beetle, and the seat rails are a direct fit. Just needed to add the electrical wiring for powering the seats.
