Installed the mk8 front LCA aero covers today. Didn't like that I had to modify them as much as I had to, but they will work nonetheless. Had to modify one of the mount holes as it didn't line up and then had to trim some of the edge to allow for the mounting points for the RS3 brake ducts.
Thanks again for all of the great information here. One step closer to trying to make that panel that covers the gas tank area in the future.View attachment 213710
Can confirm it is not 100% fitment lol. one of the holes is slightly off, but with a little work I made it fit. I will say that those plastic rivets take a lot more force then I expected, so at least those will hold up.I haven't done the Mk8 lower front arm aero covers for the same reasons.....some say it fits the arm 100%, but VW used two different pressed steel arms from what I can find out on the Mk7/7.5....& the Mk8 arm match's one of them..
It’s a different thread he’s got. I’m still waiting for mine to show up from ECCa lol.Dave, what's the PN for the subframe cover? Can't find it in the 62 pages of this wonderful thread. Also, what's needed to install it on a GTI?
Yup, found it by googling. Thanks.It’s a different thread he’s got. I’m still waiting for mine to show up from ECCa lol.
I'm because the mk8 side pieces are longer and would normally meet up with that piece you added.Fitted front exhaust tunnel cover, mk8 rear axle cover & mk8 rear arm stone guards.
id say it’s a little quieter following installation. Can hear the exhaust note more now over road noise.
Sadly the rear exhaust tunnel cover was too short, I ordered 5Q0 825 206C (k) but received M for some reason & this is about 2” too short. I Need to query with dealer If wrong part ordered or if it’s been superseded.
So, is the M suffix one off a mk8 then? I ordered the C (k) suffix like Dave has fitted from his write-up but they sent me the M one. Need to argue the toss with the dealer, checked my order & I definitely ordered the correct one.
But It's £25 so I'll not lose any sleep.
