Finally found a set (of illuminated ones) that weren't an arm and a
leg. My local breakers got some in and I had em away for a
tenner... (more like a steal!)

Anyway heres some pics for your viewing pleasure [:p]

Filthy vents.. needed a good clean up.

Thats not all I got, also managed to smuggle out a manual air con and
ash tray cover in gold optic trim. The side panels and cup holder
were bent to buggery. The bits I go were slightly scuffed and
will need a good deal of cleaning!

Nightmare! Look out for ebayers selling other bora parts, they
might be breaking one and not have thought about the vents. I was
gonna get a set for ?30 from someone on ebay but one of the vents was
broken. Still, I managed to break my drivers side one! I
repaired it by drilling the flaps and glueing metal pins in it!
Stronger than before although I have to re-do one of em as its slightly
out of alignment lol. I should take some pics and make a "How to"
thread for fixing buggered vents! [:p]

Well, look at them........ Are they the same as your Golf vents? Do your golf vents have illumination?

You can close the vents so they are flat with the dash (if you see what I mean..) and they illuminate at night once they are wired up. They just look so much better. To wire them up you can take the wiring from another switch in the center console area or make your own loom or get a pre made loom though not sure if anyone still sells these on here..
