Re: what do you think...before or after??? (mk1gti girl)

Badgeless grill with spoiler looks better. The darker rims pull the rabbit to the ground very nicely. Just put the black rims back on! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: what do you think...before or after??? (vdubjim)

i hate the silver wheels too...but the anthracite ones don't fit anymore with my new coilovers....what if i got the new wheels powder coated anthracite?? anyone good at photoshop??
the grill is a JOM and it's from the german car company (UK), and the spoiler is from euro car parts (UK).

I like the after....looks alot cleaner I think. That grille is sweet, but looks almost meshy on my screen. Do you have a link to a close up? And how much was that grille? Nice Bunny http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I like the before picture.........the car looks more intense, even though the new grill spoiler should make it look meaner, the before picture still looks like a "harder" car.

Re: what do you think...before or after??? (spoonie)

spoonie....yep we got the new head on no problems....but three days later the C clip that holds the driver side flange seal in place broke...so we left a nice puddle of tranny fluid all or my friends driveway!!! so that warranted tow #3 since waterfest!!! grrrr...
as far as the grill....they are 99 pounds each ($250 cdn), but they didn't charge me for shipping because they didn't have it ready for me when i was in the UK to pick it up....however it got broken in the shipping...as did the replacement they sent me...but the third one they sent is fine. so i couldn't tell you how much it would cost????? vdubjim, yep it's the same grill....
larger picture....go to my pics, click on my rabbit gti album, and it's on the bottom corner...bunny at damians cottage....that's the picture at half size, the original picture takes up my whole 19" monitor to see

the before wheels look WAY better on that car. As for the grill---I like the red on the before but it's a tough call because the badgeless looks better

Re: what do you think...before or after??? (mk1gti girl)

Have to say I like the before grill and wheels. The grill and wheels have just enough contrast to keep it from looking to monochromatic. I like the oldschool "sharpness" of the grill as well..
Just my $0.02. Either way it looks great, and much better than my GTI right now!


Also have to say that the old grill makes it look like my cat after too much catnip. New grill looks like my cat about to take a nap

I like the before version of the car as well. Just add the grill spoiler to that and you'll be set.
If you don't want the before grill.....I DO....PLEASE sell it to me!!

Damn alee!! I LOVE the new look, but I gotta agree w/ the old wheels...much nicer (colour wise)
P-Coat the new wheels black or anthracite (Jay Stolper does it somewhere), and that bunny be lookin hot!! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
