Very nice project.
I am watching it with great interest.

I am wondering if this amplifier and the woofer, could be used to another car, for example Polo !!!

I'm running a similar Dynaudio setup on my Polo, so yes.

The other side also has a light, but Tony was in the way and I didn't want to damage my paintwork...

Cover for the rear edge of the boot: 1S0863459 + N91141501
Ropes for the rear parcel shelf: 5G6863447 + 8P0862528

The full leather interior is also installed, looks very neat I have to say

I'm waiting for one final sensor for the climatronic and then the dash can go back in

I decided to keep my own dash but replace the front fascia with the facelifted carbon version to match the door mirrors

Well done "iichel" (sorry i don't know your real name).
Every time I look forward to seeing what changes you have thought of and how you are implementing them. Keep up the good work.
To be honest I like the black glossy fascia more than the carbon, but that is my personal opinion.

My real name is Michel, like Michael without the a :mrgreen:

I like the black as well but the problem with black is you see every little scratch, damage and dirt

Hi Micheal without the a :)

You have a point, the gloss black is very sensitive.

iichel.. great updates going on UPwards!

Don't you feel Dynaudio setup in UP is an overkill?

I also see you've installed new capacitive touch steering wheel also.. with emulator?

A good audio installation is never overkill. OEM you can have the Fender system, which is very nice too.

This is indeed the G8 capacitive wheel with the CCE from Madwarlock (Slavik). Works perfectly.

So the dashboard is back in. All is well. No errors, no short circuits.
I've replaced the aftermarket ClimAir wind deflectors with OEM ones.
Furthermore I put in some Sonniboy rear privacy shades in the rear windows and tailgate.

The windshield unfortunately was broken due to stormy weather. So against my own will, I decided to put in a heated windscreen and heated windscreen sprayer nozzles as well.
