Hi, haven't got the car yet, supposed to be on the boat but trying to sort a few bits for it. I'd like the Side Trims / Rubbing Strips similar to the ones fitted to the UP White / Black, perhaps High Up also. Might help protect it from supermarket dings.
It's a 3 door Move Up and I have just been on to the local VW dealership and found the price for the door is £43.46 and for the side £24.10. Obviously that is multiplied by 2 for the other side. It seems they are available in Chrome or Grey Metallic. Not sure if vat is included or not!

Has anyone found a less expensive way? I note one thread where it was mentioned the side trims for a Mitsubishi Colt CJ0 will fit and looking at the pictures they look a perfect match. But when I search for pics of a Mitsubishi Colt CJ0, the side trims look a lot deeper. Perhaps it was a specific model year?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Don....

Hi!It was my car with side trims from COLT.
This is aftermarket accessory, maybe thats why you can't find it.
I just compared dimension of different side trims and choose the best fitted.
You may buy other car liners if they are similar lenght.

Hi, Thanks for quick reply! I understand now, the difference being that you didn't use the original Colt parts. I will have to have a look around and see what else I can find.

Thanks again for your help!

Cheers

Side protective mouldings are now available. On the link it also mentions 5 door version, but I think it's only the 3 door version that's available at the moment.

Please see below a link 3 door version (currently listed only under SKODA
CITIGO which is the same shape as the UP)

Not sure if they will do chrome ones, but seems you can get them colour matched for an extra fee.
You could always drop him a note and ask...
