    Handbrake removal on dsg

    Afternoon all, I have a dsg I'm just converting, and it strikes me the handbrake isn't really necessary in a dsg? Can I not just leave it in 'P'? Had anyone got rid of their handbrake?

    Lowered Handbrake Cover

    I've lowered the handbrake to accommodate swivel bases on both front seats. In the process I did a butcher's job on the cover and now it's time to tidy it up. Does anyone know where I can find a new cover for a lowered handbrake?
