thanks LOL latest thing i've understood is that VW is coming back on the decision not to produce the Scirocco in the USA. (don't understand why it is not available there)

From a local Forum here i also understood that there is coming a new Scirocco in 2014, so maybe they are focus on that.

Some modifications i've already prepared :

The interior seats front and back, armrest and cover for DSG-unit will be black leather with red stitches. Decided to wrap the interior-trims with CF-wrap. Here some results :

And install the Caractere Rear Roofspoiler, as shown here :

For the interior also not that much of modifications right now. From Oettinger the floormats will be installed. Normally this is a set with an outher red edge, but asked Oettinger to do only red logo and leave everything else black.



The car will come with a Multifunction Steeringwheel and equipped with Paddle's. These paddles are not too big, so we are going to install some paddle-extensions from ECS-tuning with red encrytion in it.



Before i install these i'm waiting for a new steeringwheel of a VW Golf 6, this is the same steeringwheel, but with also red stitches in leather.

Thanks for the responses As Gehybe mentioned maybe we gonna put some red details here and there...also the black rims will be equipped maybe later on with a small red outline. But first see how erything fits and looks, then more ideas to think over

For now my tools are ready... (as you can see on the right the bimmerworks logo is still on the display case dress lol and it will stay there





For the lightning part i'm gonna put in the original Darkener Rearlight Units in from the Scirocco R Model :



Also some darkener reflectors in rear bumper are in order. For the front all lights except the Xenon will be replaced by LED.

The front units with Side- and Indicator lights had a orange reflector in them. I wanted those to remove for some darkener "view". The only nice way to do that (without touching glass in front which gonna be broken believe me..) was to cut some space in the unit and pull the reflector out. The local VW dealer will help me to glue the pieces again with some special 2-component glue they use. After that maybe some plast-dip or something, we will see.

The normal ones with orange reflector in it :



Cut some space out to remove the reflector :



Result in front :
