    Glad you got it sorted, Mine was all done yesterday and super happy with the job, basically perfect. The material and colour match was spot on and i had the sunroof shade done as well, slides back and forth only its just a bit tighter now with the new fabric but i'm sure it will improve over time.

    Looks like a good job, mind I ask who you got it done through and how much did you pay for the job?
    Have booked the car in again on tuesday, another contractor will be a attending so fingers crossed it'll be sorted

    I'm in Brisbane so the place i went to was Annvid Auto Upholsterers at Capalaba, they have been in business 41years and have done a lot of Golfs over the years, he showed me the notes they keep on each model they do so there is no surprises for them. Price was $550 for mine as i have the Sunroof and had the shade panel done as well, i think he said $450 for Golf's without a sunroof. The quality of work, knowledge and materials they used was excellent, he explained the differences in the materials available and showed me that they source the proper VW approved stuff so the match was basically perfect. Really happy with the result as i really wanted the quality over cheapest price.

    Good news it that they sent someone out who knew what he was doing and the lining has been fixed. Job is night and day.

    Thats good news, always good when they stand behind there works and fix any issues that arise.

    Shame it didn't happen until after I was able to prove that their technician stuffed up though.

    Can I ask how long they took to finish the job? I'm up on the Sunshine coast with a similar problem, sunroofed 3dr R32 headlining collapsed last week, open the window on the way home and it looked like the rooftop air bags had triggered..

    Can anybody recommend a good quality auto trimmer that could do the job on the Sunshine coast?

    Hi Mate, not sure the exact time frame but i dropped it off in the morning and picked it up in the afternoon, obviously this was a year ago but the lining is still looking perfect, had other friends go there with awesome results.

    Thanks Frazza, so long as its not a full day thing that should be ok, if I cant organize anything up here i will get in touch with them. There is no point doing a cheaper job and not being happy with it - or having it fail again.
    This is the type of flaw you might accept on a Hyundai Excel, not on what is supposed to be a premium vehicle.. It is criminal really, should have been handled as a VW recall. Our R32 has lived most of its life under a carport, very much the occasional driver, it has had far too many failings for my liking.
    BTW - Our 17 year old Sub Foz GT..... 250k, driven everywhere, parked everywhere, dog regularly toted around in the back - and the headlining is still perfect! Its door trims don't rattle, window switches still look like new, no cracks in the headlight switch bezel, fuel gauge works...
    Forget Dieselgate I want R32gate.
