These really do help to lift the interior of the MK3, and in an area where it is possibly most needed - to the cheap trim around the seats.
The fit seems perfect and the trims certainly look as if they have always been there.
However, the tape that is necessary in order to ensure a perfect fit was not double sided for some reason. Instead, there was a roughened area on the underside of the trim which appeared intended to act as a key for adhesive, so I used that to stick the tapes in place with Superglue, which worked a treat.
Preparation is important for a good, strong bond. The trims came with nothing to assist with this, not even instructions. Luckily, I had bought the matching trims for the top of the seatbelt slot and these came with some primer, which I used to prepare for the guide trims too. I cleaned the area with White Spirit first. It all seems well stuck down.
These are a good buy and do make a difference, but the above small flaws have to cost them a star in my view. Some basic instructions and a tube of primer would make these an easier and more confidence inspiring addition.
