shaving is good
ummmmm, for a nice example check out the thread by bluevr, he is currently widebody-ing and shaving his vr.
only problems would be that you have no wiper, hence no way to clean your back window at speed. also, a ****ty job would yield ****ty side effects.
but go for it, its a cool thing to do

Thanx for the point-in-the-right-direction.

uh oh... after ignoring those tail light comments
you can consider some options. If I were gonna do it I'd take out the VW symbol, remove the wiper - like you, I never use it - and take out the seam that goes around the plate recess. Or you could always put in a new euro tub, but that might be a bit much. Keep me posted

The rear wiper is crap...get rid of it. You will love the look of your hatch once you do. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Thanx.......

At least someone has my back

I was thinking about getting the license plate removed altogether, but then I figured it be too much trouble finding a way to explain it to the cops....wouldn't know where to put it..bumper.???
If u find anyone who will do it for a good price, lemme kno. And I will keep you posted
