Yeah thats a VW owner for you. The problem is that because VW's, especially the Mk IV's, have become so common place that owners started running outta of mods to make there car unique. So they just started doing some of the most off the wall mods to there car. Another popular head liner is to cover it in checkerboard or Burberry. Also it was poplular for a while to make the hood and roof different from the rest of the car. Like covering it in a faux woodvinyl. I even seen a few hoods painted in chalkboard paint, which is actually kinda cool for car shows. Right now the big trend taking a black VW and having part of it glossy and part of it flat.
So yeah this doesn't surprise me at all.
Oh and that website was the one I was talking about as being kind unfriendly to those that are new and not "with it" for the newest trends.
