What kind of wreck did you get into that you just need a hood and grille? Just curious. I would guess you would need a bumper and maybe headlights as well.

IMO, bosers, esp. angry bosers are silly looking. I like sleepy bosers if I had to choose. If you get CF, I would paint it.

Depending on what you have on your car is what kind of hood you should get. like an OEM kit or something i would go for a normal notch filled. but smoething aftermarket i would say boser.

Re: (GLImaster)

The only reason I asked, as mentioned before, was you have to match the style of the hood to the rest of the front end...
What bumper are you looking at?

They don't exist. They're custom metal. You can get a SpeedTech extension for the subtle boser look. I actually think they look good on the Jettas(not so much the GTIs). Just tell the shop what you want and have them weld it up for you http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (miss vdub)

i was at a stoplight and someone hit me from behind goin like 35 or so, which bumped me into a truck infront of me...im pretty sure im gonna get the eurogear boser...anyone got ideas on grilles? where can i get a 3 bar badgeless? also, im thinkin about painting it PG on the sides and leave the carbon fiber in the center going to the grille...think this will look good on a PG car?
