These are not OEM so may not be a perfect fit, but better than nothing. I would of bought a set as spares but the seller will not post to Northern Ireland. Let me know how you get on. Still might buy a set and get them sent to Scotland and my friend can post them from there.

Available for each side. Good luck.

If your after the plastic outer sill panels, all over the bay or drop me a pm of what your after. But based on the year of your car, i'm guessing your after the sill repair panels.

If you need rear arch repair panels, either get a welder that can make cut outs and patch them or get cut outs from a scrapped car. Good Luck!! As yours is a an early model, better getting cut outs if you can. There used to be a guy in Belgium did them, but no more. Could maybe be a club solution / buy option. Was going to enquire with a company in Wexford that make custom body panels. If you drive your car on a regular basis, most common fault in the body work is the rear section below the headlights and the rear arches.
You can still buy a rear section from VW classic , but for the rear arches you have to buy half of the rear of the car and the cost is prohibitive. Or try on the facebook.

I think Joost has some for sale, so might be worth giving him a shout.
