Hi all,

Firstly, apologies if I have posted to the wrong area.

I have just purchased a golf, and was wondering if anybody knew where I could get the following (or have part numbers);

1. Golf GTI Recaro Black Front Centre Armrest

2. Aero Wipers

Also, any instructions on how to fit aero wipers would be very much appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

hello mate..

when i got my gti with the recaro leather seats i had no armrest.. went to the dealers and they wanted ?388.67 for the armrest with the leather top..

so i said thankyou and goodbye and went to e-bay and got an oem black centre armrest with a cloth lid for ?87... then found a oem black leather lid for ?20 brand new in the wrapper. (main dealers ?45+vat)

so in all cost ?107 a massive saving.. and it took 30mins to put in the car... the main dealer wanted to charge an hour labour!

thanks for that. can you get these leather lids seperately? where did you find one? ?20 sounds a bit good! I thought I might have to get mine re-trimmed.

watch out for the cheap ones from 'hong kong' i spent about 3weeks waiting for one to come up on e-bay. (privite seller)

as for the new lid.. that was also from a privite seller...(had to of worked for vw) i've checked my details but can't find out who it was from.. sorry guys.

i just played the waiting game and i guess got lucky..

did you receive the one from hong kong? i've heard they're pretty flimsy, but do you think the lid would fit on my existing OEM armrest?

i never recivied the ones from hong kong.. just heard about them from other people... those sellers do say they are 'spot on copies' i don't wanna say 'yeah' they will fit as i have not seen one.

i think your best bet would be to see how much a local upholster can retrim the lid for..... unless you manage to get lucky on e-bay..

give 'vw parts' a call on 01903850924. they are a scrapyard in the south near pompey that deal in the vag group. managed to get afew bits off them

good luck in your search

thanks for that, i'll try them tomorrow.

also, thinking about it, if i wanted to try my own hand at re-trimming, i could do a lot worse than starting with something like an amrest lid! All those years watching Blue Peter must surely count for something!
