      Yeah, I know it needs textured side skirts and the GT Special bumper to the front and the textured Polo 6n2 doorhandles...

      That looks like an awesome starting point for a build. We didn't get syncro mk3's in the united states.. although we do often take for granted how many vr6 cars we have. I'm a big fan of 20th Jahre Editions too.. but we never got those either. I have a silver arrow vr6 gti and I think I've gone for a very similar look on the inside as you're looking to achieve... I did however luck out with having "97 Drivers Edition" interior parts on my 98 gti. As much as I love the mk6 gti seats and steering wheel I established that they were way too big to fit in a mk3. The omp wheel you have will look awesome paired up with some nice seats. Here's a couple pics of my silver arrow:

      Your car looks great! If you've got more pics of the interior you colud show me soma
      My plans with the lights are similar to yours. I wan't to install 3.5 handbrake and shiftknob and boot, cause i like the OEM+ look Maybe i will delete the rear seats and change the leathers to some RS6 front seat or GT3. But it's far away, i think...

      RS6 recaros and GT3 seats are two of my favorite seats.. but I think many people would agree that they're simply too big for these cars. I have recaro speeds and they're almost too big.. looking backwards is a daunting task. Here's a pic of Mike Mccoys h2oi winning jetta coupe with massive gt3 seats:


      this is the only other interior pic I have


      in my opinion, oem mk3 recaros re-wrapped would be perfect

      Yeah, they are big, but looks so good The oem recaros aren't bad idea, but as long as i got my rear seats the leathers will do (i hope it's the right expression)
      BTW that jetta looks awesome and i like the BBS' on your picture!

      Interesting observation. I myself did not realize this until I visited Europe and noticed the vast majority of Mk3's were 1.4 and 1.6 equipped cars. Just take a look at what a Mk3 1.4 engine looks like and that would be enough for those with an ABA 2.0 or even the Canadian 1.8 8valve guys to go outside this very moment and hug their car.

      I found a 1996 Golf Syncro here the US. I will be using it to build a 1998 Cabrio VR6 turbo syncro. Here's pics of the syncro and my first Cabrio build. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

      Soma cabby parts are needed by me (black sunvisors, dimple dash with red lighted switches etc...)
