      Like it says Im just wondering. I have a Votex grill and ABT skirts. I know they are kind of hard to find But what else was offered at some point that maybe you are looking for or you saw once. Thanks for your time.

      The Flairs are only rare in N/A, I have no idea what grill that is but I like it and I love the heckblend thingy If I ever find one for a wagon Im buying it. But I have a euro plate tube already

      The fender flares (Verbreiterrungssatz) are rare back at home too.
      Believe me, I had a hard time finding them in Bulgaria too.

      The front mask is not a home-made DIY one,
      but a real Ingo Noak nose panel.

      The European heckblende is über-rare to find in smoked,
      and with all four tails matching.

      I dont really think so.

      My grill is pretty damn rare and Every one seems to like it.

      cant count how many times people have said that they REALLY like my front end and have a new respect for the B3 because of it.

      I have tried but normally they all say they dont ship to the US. that Heckblend is cool BTW. If I could find one of those I would rock it instead of my euro tub.

      looks ok.. i think it really depends on the car.. looks good on a white car.

      but i also think the DE's ruinthe look too.

      I have never liked those heckblende things either.. they all look terrible.. on mk2's and passats alike

      yup..

      i actaully would like your grill alot more if it had a badge. . or completly shaved.. not a fan of the chickenmesh front though.


      also not a fan of mk4's

      i mean the stock VW emblem .

      i just like the angry eye look.
      but i like having the emblem .

      do you have a shot of your grill on the car from the front ?

      can you still see the ugly rad support behind the mesh ? thats the one thing that would bother me with a cut out grill

      It just dawned on me that I have some close ups of the votex grill, it matches the DE's pretty good.

      What I like is the way the center of the Votex grill has like a texture,
      that matches the surrounds of the DEs.

      That grille is good!

      So, I'll paste the stuff from the thread I unfortuneatly started.

      ABT grille


      Hella grille
      Actually saw this on a white B3 the other day, looks very much as an addon that builds approx 1" out of original item.


      BBS grille
      Getting one soon! Well worth <100USD for brand new from store.


      Hella DE/dual headlights, regular and smoked



      Treser kit (fenders, taillights and grille)



      Hella/Passat GT/VR6 taillights

      Haha, OMG!

      In my "car thread" I posted the interior of what was an canditate for me to buy. Little did I know, that the ugly interior that I believed was retrofittet foil actually was genuine Votex!
      edit: nah, just seems like a Votex ripoff...

      Did you fab these yourself?

      i think it would be awsome for someone to fab these if not
