i want a put sidemarkers on my 96 gti. and i like the ones the new gti's have. now i am sure sombody out there has done it. i was wondering if its at easy as drilling holes and popping them in? what about the wiring?
If you look at the sidemarkers, you will notice they are slightly recessed into the fender. You can drill holes and pop them on, but it won't look as good.
Try the search function, people have done different versions.
To wire it, check out the DIY thread at the top of the page, do a search (ctrl F) on each page.
You can buy fenders with these installed in them if you'd like to spend the money, or if I remember correctly, 1993 Cabrios had them, or dummie plates. (I could be wrong, don't kill me!)
The ones you can buy will also have no hole for the fender mounted antenna, so you can put a FUBA, or relocate the antenna to underneath the raintray, the DIY is also in the FAQ/DIY thread.
