It does need a silver stripe, the only logical choice.

Is it quiet and comfy ?

It's a very different van to the mk6, Quiet and somehow seems a bit more grown up?

Good recomendation on the roof bars :D really quiet compared with the old one

I drive our old mk6 at work sometimes, similar shape but a world away from the 7.

I'm probably not going to get much of a chance to do much modding for a while :(

The new house is the priority just now, so I'll only get a few bits and pieces till that's further on :D
