I bought the front bumper bar from t-reg central..

however the instructions are in german. While easy enough to figure out from the (blurry black and white) pictures in the manual.. I have a question about one step.
How do you pop out the mini mesh grills that are around the fog lamps? Before I start poking and meddling around, is there a simple way to get them out?
Has anyone else done this?
Thanks!

Just pull hard; I recall that I pulled out the outside of the frame first, then the inside edge.

ooooo...that would look nice. Especially set off against the chrome grill.
Use your imagination on this pic...or maybe someone with photoshop could air brush it in. I'd think SpockCat could do it...but I'm afraid it would end up PINK instead of chrome.

The bumper bar seems like a reasonable investment to protect against minor bumps and scrapes from poor parallel parkers, etc. but I started to think: does VW actually have attachments for these kinds of bumper bars/brush guards specifically designed to withstand a bump every now and then?
Or could this bar actually do more damage in a minor accident because it's putting force where force normally isn't applied (specifically: below the bumpers).

I did it yesterday without incident. Those covers easily popped out.
Will post pix later!
