    You have a good point there Doc, the wrapping is really a poor attempt to make it look something else.
    You would have thought that like the "A" pillars the "C" pillars could have been painted black to match the roof. That way the transition between body colour and roof colour would be defined at the lower window mark around the entire vehicle. Or apart from trying to paint two colours on one panel, wrap in in a matching black to the roof.

    Main reason the wrapping went is that there were small bits that had lift/chipped away on one side. I could only see it getting worst and didn't want to play stupid games with VW in trying to replace/repair it.

    I think they'd look good with a plain gloss black wrap on that pillar. The textured finish was unnecessary IMO - too many different textures just make things look "fussy".

    I seem to recall that the black roof is actually a wrap too??? The roof rails are painted if I recall correctly, but the roof and A pillars are wrapped??? Anyway, it is what it is...
    Cheers

    Thanks for the contributions. Will be heading to Camberwell Volkswagen to purchase next month.I have decided to go with the TROC R Pyrite Silver,the black style pack and will include the Panoramic Sunroof. The main drawback to me is cabin noise.I do not think the Hankook tyres are helpful here!! I am wondering if anyone has better suggestions,, perhaps Michelin is a better option. BTW the 2 decal stickers on the C pillars mentioned earlier in the thread WILL disappear shortly after I receive the car.

    Congrats mate, I am interested to know what OBD11 coding you did on it though. My wife's R could potentially do with some of that too.

    That's why I went with a non blackout version of the R in Blue.

    Firstly I live in Darwin and the sunroof would never get used and I found all the blackout on the roof and pillar was tacky too. I'd much rather just have a blue roof and pillar with the chrome edging.

    What did you use to treat your rubbers?

    Point_of_intervention: - Menu option to change settings.
    Overtaking_right_prevention: - Vehicle is factory set to restrict you in cruise control from passing on the left of traffic, this removes that restriction.
    function_configuration_hmi: - Removes the "nag" screen when you start up the vehicle.

    Nextzett Gummi Pflege, Rubber Care Stick.

    Considering a TROC R or a TROC R LINE-gummi-pflege-100ml-jpg

    This stuff is magic, will stop rubbers freezing in cold weather and protects rubbers from drying out and fading in hot weather.
    It is only for rubber not plastics, so it is not a 303 or Armor All silicon type of coverup.

    Would have liked an non black style package but I got a demo that had it. The deal I received was too good to worry about it.
