Cheers! Grill looks likes it's a good price.

I ordered 2 from eBay last night and they're coming from China. As we're not using the car much in happy to wait. It would've been cheaper from Amazon and quicker buy hey, no big loss.

I've picked up a lot of things for my second GTI, similar to what you have. Have got interior trim and a few things like an RNS 510 and a fiscon Bluetooth system that I picked up at a reasonable price.

Will be following this thread to see what else you do to yours  :happy2:

Thats a good point... i suppose with the colour match you can notice that straight away and send them back if needed (although complete pain in the ass appreciated!).... but yeah once/if rust comes through you are way out of your warranty period..

It's hard to know about the eBay ones. I've read in some cases they have rusted to sh*t in a few years. And the colour match is poor. It's hard to know and you won't know the quality for a few years. They only have a 90 day warranty. Which doesn't give me much confidence!

In the same boat as you mate, same color too!.... noticed a tiny bit of rust a few weeks ago, now its tripled in size, a lot of it you can rub off but def needs replacing... looks like it has COVID....

I have heard decent things about the Lothian wings off eBay, the insurance approved ones...  are they not a great fit?

Hi Deano, car's looking great! You've done a fair amount in such a short time, it's a good read!

I bought a second GTI and its tailpipes are literally cracking with the rust, so I would want to pick up some of those tailpipes to slot over. Do you have a link? Coudn't find ones on eBay that look exactly like yours.

Also, the front grill, did you go to VW or get one off eBay?

Thanks!


Hi ... Thanks for the kind words ... still a lot do anyway the grill came from eBay a very good copy and some great reviews that’s why I went for it .

As for the the tail pipe trims I did not find any I linked on eBay so brought these from amazon and came delivered super quick

Hope this helps

Thanks...

As with every other breaking golf - wings were the first thing to go :(

Ah looking closely at the Jetta wings, they have a swathe line on them that the golf doesn't have.  That's a shame!

I will look into the Gumtree Golf though!

Thanks!

How are are we that Jetta wings are the same for the golf?  They are in Sheffield which isn't far for me at all. I actually rung these guys yesterday about a golf wing they had, but it was rusty.
