Afternoon guys

Ive just got a set of net optic trim, but I can find the door handles (inside of the car) for sale anywhere. Are they are net optic or just plain black plastic. I was hoping they would be like the wood insert ones but with rhe net optic as the insert? anyone shed any light on this for me?

how did you find doing the boot micro switch? my boot warning light has stopped coming on (if boot is opened when the engine is running) also the car locks itself if the boot is open and all the doors are closed when engine is off. Is not fun when loading the weekly shop as when the car locks the alarm sets and then goes off every 2mins.

Boot lights sorted very easy job to switch the lock over i ve just fitting a new connector when i have the time as the old one is nakerd from the water.

The golfs lock them selfs after so long as a security feature if you don't open the doors. both my switchers on the front doors are damaged so i have to open drivers door and put key in the ignition but it still dose it some times[:mad:]. Also i never shut the door unless anther door is open when i first get in the car. my like to lock it self a lot lol ill get that sorted one day.

the golfs electrics are crazy sometimes, my interior/map light exploded last year when I turned it on, after this the car would tell me the doors/boot were open when they were shut and I was driving, the central locking stopped working, the alarm would go off all the time. I think a loose wire in the map light unit led it shorting out and going bang which blew one of the fuses. All sorted now thanks to the forum.
