      As mentioned speak to LeeLee. The only bits that might be a problem are the stereo and heater control unit, which happen to be the most expensive bits. Thats why I just bought a set already done on ebay.

                  The new leon trim is very smooth, so should be no issue with that . A lot of small buttons on them though, similar to the VX stereo ...

                      Do the little bits still light up?
                      Like where the led light comes out?

                        yes everything on the stereo is the same the leds/smds are on the buttons not the fascia the heater controls are different and would need masking

                          Ah sound mate, never knew that.

                          Ive seen folk using wax to mask small areas like that and then heating it up to come off. Messy though i wouldnt even attempt it myself...

                              you can get a latex masking fluid for that... i bought my heater controls from someone on aon for a £10 and had the rest painted, cost me under a £100 for the lot including my steering wheel bits and door handles...happy days
