If you had the BBS front spoiler, I would say paint the kit white. But, without it I think it looks better with the kit black. Of course, you should do what you like best...

It would look crazy like this.. a big ABD/BBS/Zender or a nice big duck bill.

Re: Some updated Cabby Pics.. (retrohasen)

I'm really starting to want a set of those wheels.
Did you polish them yourself or have it done? $?
That looks really nice, decided on a color for paint yet? If you paint it a light color I would leave the kit black. If you paint it a dark color like dark blue, dark green, black, I think it would look good with the kit painted to match.

Jerry,paint it purple and take the back seat out and put a massive stereo in it, oh no wait, someones done that already.
Hey Retro he'll be at ND for sure,but in a certain black Rocco I suspect.
Also Jerry,you need to take about four inch out of the springs

Jerry,did you think about all black paint, would look Da Bollox. take the rear marker lights off, move the door mirrors forward,at the corner of the door( should have done that on mine). Maybe a few chrome touches, old style euro chrome mirrors and door handles. get the euro GTI front spoiler for sure. The jury is still out on polished race style gas caps though, unless your moving to under the rear light, then you gotta do it.
