      I'm new to the forum, how's everyone doing?
      I just bought a 1998 Golf GTI 2.8 VR6 and I'm looking for a body kit to put on it but I haven't found very many options online. Can anyone recommend a site or post pic's of theirs? Thanks.

      Anyhow. You won't find many cars here with body kits. And the ones you do often get made fun of.
      That being said, welcome aboard. MY advice would be to look around at some of the tasteful examples of what can be done with the car before you throw a kit on it.

      look into the dubtechnik (i know i spelled that wrong) kit. It changes the factory look, and still looks pretty clean.

      I'm really just looking to replace the front bumper/shirt, i don't think it looks very good compared to the new models. Not the best picture but... and thanks.

      Thanks. It's the factory bumper, just with the turns/fogs and sidemarkers shaved. The grille is an FK badgeless, and the headlights are Hella MkIV-looks.

      if you want a more modern clean look go for a mk3.5 cabrio front end ( 1999-2002 golf cabrio =3.5 cabrio)
