In Spain, during summer, the heat beats down sometimes reaching 50c, so if I am out and about, the dash on the Treg gets hot, also, the sun reflects off the dash causing alot of glare when driving.
So I protect the dash with a dash mat and it keeps the dash cooler and no glare. I use a custom windshield cover when parked in the sun to keep things cool[er].
The one I have is from a company called “DASH TOPPERS” and they provide an array of different dash mat/dash covers for various vehicles.
The one I have is black felt and fits perfectly on my 2004 Touareg.
Here is a direct link to the one i bought.
Dash Mat Cover: $51.95
