    Yeah i did look at them and consider painting with a fine brush, just keeps the degs tidy as it would ve very hard to mask the lens part! Yeah Chris let me know if you find them!

    Found this pic on vwvortex, same colour as my tdi... Deffo going for a new pair of bumpers so i can have the factory black strips on them, just breaks the colour up nicely and makes it slightly less gay looking! Also seeing it makes me think i'm going to keep a badged front grille as debadged ones just dont look as right! Also got some colour coded elec mirrors to fit!
    Looky:

    Just a wee update, Changed my headlights for smoked gti items, clear indicators in the bumpers, I have a new -60mm suspension kit to replace my -40mm kit which its on now (of which my osf front shock has decided to spew its oil out and onto my pads!) Also picked up my 928 rims of Will, getting the balloon tyres stripped off tomorrow, next stop centrecaps then back off for paint. I'm thinking of a graphite grey wheels.. what you think???

    Its not on them yet! Fitting them on saturday at work, having to order new top mounts/bearings as mine have a bit of play, gonna fit the rear gmax kit too, had porsche rims in the boot today and it sat just right! Got the tyres stripped off them now so i'm going to have an hour or two at weekend cleaning them up and taking them back to ally!

    Been tinkering with it again today, now fitted g60 steels (cheer jon!), its fitted with headlight protectors which are fitted as a trial! Also added a wee bonus to my slightly crazy pavng style bumper too.. My car looks way way too high, hopefully getting a 75/60 kit fitted tomorrow if this is humanely possible in between working, flitting to grimsby, getting my hair cut and going out at 8!! Anyhoo heres some pics of my high-ride tdi! Also hopefully ditching the flaps tomorrow too!

    Changed the rims again, just temporarily its sat on odd vw steelies, the fronts are et42, the rears are 39..! I personally think black rims suit it and harden it up slightly, the wheels need to be bigger, and matching tho...
