Yes, I have used TMI kits in several cars. The fit on the panels is very 
good, but some of the carpet pieces need some adjusting depending on the year for 
the kit. The heater outlets on the early cars are what need the adjusting, as 
last summer I did my dad's 73 Fastback, and the entire kit fit like it was 
supposed to. Their seat covers fit good too, but you have to let them know what 
style of seat back you actually have, as their catalog seems to be off by a 
year or 2 (my 65 has 64 style seats, and my wife's 70 has 69 style seats, and it 
makes a difference). Overall though, I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. I 
even have one of their headliner kits in my Notch. About the only problem with 
the TMI kits that I've found were a lack of instructions, but then these cars 
are easy enough to work on that it shouldn't be a problem. When I got my kit 
for the Notch, they even sent me a free video of their installation, but the 
video was for a bug. Very informative though. Do yourself a favor though, and 
order the new seals and clips for the panels, as that will make your life much 
easier. :D If I remember correctly though, you'll need 2 sets of them, as they 
package them for a bug, not a type3 (which uses about 10 more).

I can't help you here on this, as I haven't tried them. I have heard good 
things about them though. I hope this helps.
