Part 10 (Mirror Caps) of the DAP MK7 GTI Build

January 24, 2016

In the pursuit of uniqueness everyone wants to find something that they can do to their vehicle to make if their own.  We are no different.  For me the choice to go with carbon fiber was based on the contrast between our paint scheme.  The carbon fiber being dark was a great way to set it off against the white paint of our MK7 GTI.


In terms of options other there we only have 2 for the MK7 platform which are the aftermarket carbon fiber caps or the OEM European imported Aluminum look caps.  The Euro Aluminum caps are especially popular with the MK7 Golf R crowd as in Europe the MK7 Golf R came with these caps from the factory.
