Is it just me or does anyone else think it would look so much nicer for a 99-03 gti to have 99-03 jetta headlights. i love everything about the 03 gti's but i feel like it's been a little jipped in the front. the back looks dope but they could have made the headlights a bit bigger or boxier. Even if one was to do a retrofit w/projectors, it wouldn't look as good as it could...

Re: GTI headlights vs JETTA headlights (chron1c)

just do a front end swap with a jetta. you can find a bunch of pictures on this forum of people that have done it (including myself). do a search for JTI or Jolf. i have a jetta with a golf front end (getta). you will have to swap fenders, bumper, hood, and headlights. the job takes around 4-6 hours. i don't really have any good pictures from the front, but here's one that shows the golf front end:

I totally agree, the headlights were the reason I swapped front ends. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (Jirmany)

I agree.. when i swapped to a jetta front end.. The stock jetta beam pattern was lousy compared to the GTI.... Especially without the fogs..
But i found a simple solution.. E-codes with phillips silvervision bulbs..
Better then my GTI lights were

I like the Jetta lights better on my Jetta, and the GTI lights on my GTI. I used to like the Jetta lights more until I got my newest GTI....

Re: GTI headlights vs JETTA headlights (chron1c)

actually, i think i'm just gonna get some projectors. anyone got any pictures to show off? so far, i've only seen dinky projectors on gti's. i' thinkin more like ML projectors or angel eyes. Fat ol' eye...that would look niiiiice.
