      Those are prototypes of our upcoming Rabbit flare kit.

      We're working on the GTI version now and will be producing both kits shortly.

      Aren't they the same?

      And was this car at H2O? I recall seeing a white Rabbit with some kickass flares like these.

      No, the GTI version will be a bit narrower and integrate cleanly into the stock skirts and valences. Rabbit flares are more hardcore.

      Yes, the Rabbit was at H20 and spent its time at the C2 booth

      Good to see the retro wheel arches come back; MK4 owners will be jealous!

      I want some textured ones for my gti. I have a rabbit front bumper and rear bumper though, but I still have the stock gti sides. Hmmm....

      I think if they were molded and painted they would loose all of their appeal. They work b/c they're a throwback to the style of the older generations, if they were painted and molded they'd just be an ugly wide body fender flare with no redeeming value imo

      Can't wait to see the more subtle GTI version as it will go nicely w/ my textured theme which is my own homage to the older generations
