      haha.. some of both, I think
      note that this was a vw show, and I was in the novice class. I was far more consistent and pretty quick compared to most of the other novice drivers, but not really near the top novice drivers, and no where near the advanced drivers

      What front bumper is that? Me likey [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Nevermind...found it. Thunderbunny is sweet but I don't think I'll be going for a $1,800 bumper.
      If it's cheaper than the Osir CF grill I may go that route.

      it's a factory thunderbunny bumper from the dealer. don't expect it to be cheap.

      It's the Votex ThunderBunny bumper. They come prepainted. They retail for around $1600ish pre-painted. $1700ish for one with fog lights.

      Actually had one JSW that was being delivered to a customer that had the rear fog light built into the original taillight. But unfortunately hadn't been already wired and programmed for it. But it was still cool to see.

      Not sure but the appeal to me is lost. I found that the rear fog on VW's only lights on the driver side of the rear. My BMW lights up on both tails which I like more.
      The one side just doesn't do it for me. I don't think I'll be wasting any money or effort especially if euro tails are necessary.

      Does anyone know if the ECS city light conversion kit will work with the 2009 JSW?
      http://www.ecstuning.com/Volks...51131/
      Looking at my car... it doesn't appear that this lower strip lights up. I don't know if I'm missing something or if the pictures misrepresent the product.

      I believe the answer is no. The 'city' lights on the halogen headlamps are in the headlamps themselves. I bought some flea-bay LEDs with this in mind, only to realize the lights are plainly visible in the reflector domes.
      I may install them anyway, will be interesting to see how bad they look.

      That's what I thought. Only the GT/LI's have the HID's, right? I wonder why ECS lists these for all MKV's. Must be the 2.0T that's confusing the search.
