Has anyone come up with something better,have a 01 Cabrio that the rubber trim on the top edge of the cowl grill went bad so l removed it.The gill is two pieces vw sells only the passinger side can't get the other side any longer anyhow they're asking around $70 for that one side.We got a gasket on line but it doesn't lay flat on the windshield (photos enclosed) anyone find something on line or come up with a fix?This is our first water cooled vw always had air cooled Thanks
