      While looking at a mkv gti to see the footwell light location on the driver's side, I noticed that there is a plastic cover hiding everything.
      I have a manual mkvi golf and there is no cover; it's open straight to the steering linkage. I was just curious if anyone has a cover or is it open. Vw cheaped out from the mkv to mkvi in similar respects and they may have here too.

      One of the many ways VW has reduced the cost to build the car. Normal.
