Other than noise reduction, what's the benefit?

Grab the full length front undertray and exhaust tunnel shield while you're at it. They make an even larger difference than the rear arm covers do

I have the full front under tray/shield with air inlet. Can you buy an exhaust tunnel shield for a Golf R?

Ordered from 1stvwparts, $5.34 each. Arrived the next day, but I’m only 45 minutes away from them. Out of state shipping is another matter. I’m led to believe any VW dealer can order these already.

I was investigating the torsion beam Golfs, and found that there's an G8 axle cover available as well: not sure if it fits:
5WA501715A


That's the Golf version of the Polo cover....

Torsion beam has "rough road covers" for the beam itself. The MK7 Golf & many other models had tow covers, one for the left "arm/spring seat" & one for the right arm/spring seat.

Part numbers 17 here:-

The photo you have posted in a cover for the central section of the torsion beam, which fits between the other two covers. Now the big question is will the MK8 central cover, fit the MK7 beam & fit to the MK7 side covers????..No idea..might do!

I'll order and test. It doesn't look like it's an expensive part, and to be honest... This stuff is addicting, like completing a puzzle.
My brother got hooked on the topics too :cool:
