How to fit a GLi Lip to Euro Bumper... ***www.performance-cafe.com*** (Completed pics added)


Want to know what it will take to put the Jetta GLi lip on to your Golf IV Euro Bumper?
GLi Lip w/Euro Bumper...

As you can see the GLi lip has a side length that is nearly the same as your Euro bumper.

The tabs in the center of the front seem to match up fairly well, you may want to save these ones as they will help you line the lip up centered on the cover.

Here you can see that as the clips get farther away from the center the farther off they are, these you will have to remove. You can try and shave the sides off so they will fit in however I found it easier to simply remove them, the groove in the bumper will hold the lip on fine, plus the screws on the fender liner will make it quite difficult to remove, if you want to be very safe you can run a bead of abs glue down the center of the groove on the bumper.

wow!! If that 'really' works, i'd love to try. Do you have any pics of the final process w/o any additional body work done (i.e. bondo, etc.)?
Great job!
And if anyone has already done this, please post some pics

It will fit physically, however it will require some modification.
As soon as I get my stuff back from the painter I will post some pic's.

GLi Lip on the euro numper looks sweet!



Here are a few shots showing both the side of the GLi lip to the eurobumper (Perfect lineup) and the bumper to the fender whick is the notorious poor fitting area on the aftermarket euro bumpers, as you can see it lines up just like a factory bumper....

There is a little bit of a fitment issue around the corners - it will stick out a little bit - see pic, its about 1/16 to 1/8 off. But what did is refabricate some new tabs with simple metal strapping and a dremal tool and it sucked it in pretty good. Need to reef on it good to get it in though.
