well i bought my first car, a 1984 Rabbit GTI. That thing makes so much noise(i love it). Well i just wanted to introduce myself and wanted to know if anyone could post some pics of some Rabbits tricked out Euro-style. Thats what i want to go for, when i get a job atleast.

Re: i bought a Rabbit GTI........ (IamJacks______)

this is a question for me too.
i think the answer lies in 2 big areas: the mounting and the fenders.
you'll note they're different for the square headlights (blinkers wrap into the fenders) vs the squares.

I have a rad support and fenders that I am probably not going to use. My car is a bit bent up to go through the work but I got the parts with my '83. IM me if you are interested.
