I have communicated with the seller and he has sent me several pics for anyone who wants to see more - I have been looking high and low for a year for these. I haven't got mine yet so I can't say how well made they are, but everything I've seen so far looks good. My biggest concern is how thick the top part is, it is exposed to the sun alot and on the factory panels they crack very easily. At $290 shipped they are not cheap, but they're still less (much less) than a new panel from VW and if they work well then they are definitely worth it!

Sun does'nt have the same effect on fiberglass as it does on plastic, however fiberglass in more easily cracked if it is not formed correctly(ie: warped) than plastic is. Looks like good alternative to the multi piece part VW made.
