Right, got beige leather in my GT TDI 130, but no 3rd centre head rest in the rear. Looking to upgrade to make it a full GTI, but can not find the drivers side vertical part of the rear bench for love nor money.

I know the Beige LEather is not to everyones taste, but come on, how many Golf MK IV's have been sold, and not a single spares yard has a beige leather equiped car ??

I have tried all the internet options (Find a part type things) and no one has come up with the goods.

I can imagine the stealer price to be just silly, so that is not an option. Anyone got any ideas ?

Cheers

Ade

Hiya,

Don't worry - you're not alone, I've also got VW's beige leather sports interior - though I have 3 rear headrests. Weird.

When looking round breakers yards - the beige leather usually only comes in either Indigo Blue, Bright Green or Metallic Black cars. Leather was standard from 2001-on in the V6 (though curiously not on the Bora V6 until 2003), and an optional extra on every other model - but, let's face it, most people if they were buying a leather interior would go for the black, so I'd be on the lookout for dark-coloured V6 wrecks...

Given the guys at Vagparts.com a try?

Another beige leather Indigo blue man here. Sorry don't really know where you could get hold of the mentioned parts as they are extremely rare to find, good luck anyway.

mate the centre rear headrest is over-rated!! (don't know if its actually rated) but mine is sitting in the roped off cubby in the boot as it gets in the way of the rear view mirror. oh, I've got black leather so no you wouldn't want it! [:p]

I've got Beige Leather Recaros in my car love the colour[:D]...

Why don't you buy a third head rest in cloth then get it re-leathered they should be able to fit it as well into the car if you ask.[:p]

Hmmmm, interesting ,...does anyone know of such a re-covering place ??

Would it be tricky getting a good match to the exisitng leather ?

Oh, and you are right, the contrasting beige leather with the dark indigo pearl paint look the biz !

Even better now I have taken the bling factor out with the 35% all round tints ![8D]
