So... Anyone own both a Mk6 GTI and a Mk5 R32?

Need to check how much difference the exhaust valance is from each other since I got a crazy idea maybe fitting the Mk6 GTI rear valance on my Mk5 R32 rear bumper hehe :)


What are your thoughts on this?

really, that's all you need to do before the dual exhaust GTI valance from the MK6 golf fit the Mk5 R32 bumper? :D

I'm so tempted to do this!!!  :party: :party:

Awesome this made the choice even harder now :D


Have to decide before friday :thinking:, and really wanted to fit the diffuser before that to see the fitment - but I'll take your word for it, if you were planning doing this yourself and have seen it been done  :pomppomp:
