Just wondering how many people opted for the Euro Rad support and how many people just cut the North American Support, fab some brackets and spacers.
Thanks,
Craig

Re: People running MK4 headlights (HappyVdubber2)

I'm in the middle of doing the euro rad swap.... lots of cutting and shaving of the rad support to get the rad to sit right in the support.... it's taking my uncle and myself two full days to do the swap and its not done yet... just have to do the wiring for the lights and put on the bumper skin and it should be finished.....

Re: People running MK4 headlights (HappyVdubber2)

I have Mk4 style lights placed into the NA rad support & bumper. This made my lights aim a little high and in the beginning I was flashed (high-beamed) every night I went out it has died down some but people still do it and I can see that they are aimed too high...High beams show me a clear shot of the tops of trees. The shop that installed them say that is as low as they can aim them.
Now I'm getting Euro bumpers and Euro rad support so my lights should be aligned perfectly. At least that's what this new shop has told me. So, I would go Euro if I were you...it's a lot lighter since it is plastic not metal.

I opt'd for the Euro support and bumper support as well. Makes you take a second look, and if you have to replace the lights because of cracks, no need to spend the extra dough for another set of "modified" units.

Re: People running MK4 headlights (rhussjr)

Can anyone tell me or direct me to a webpage that has instructions on installing the Euro Rad Support? I have seem many pages with instructions on how to modify the N/A support, but nothing about installing the Euro part.
Thanks,
Craig

What does the "Kit" you are refering to included? I am guessing:
Wiring harness/adapter
"L" brackets
Nylon Spacers
