Hi, just found out i have one of the mk3's with the added in car swimming pool, side carpet in boot wet, as is rear footwell, i know this year has problems with the vents behind the rear bumper and i have the car booked in with my body guy to get them sealed up, but also know from another site that the tail lights can also let water in, the common fix is to use a sealant on them, but as this will make it a pain to remove light when fitting a new bulb, my i ask do later models leak from the tail light and if not will a later model fit mine and if so which year should i go for? many thanks guys, over to you.
