      Thank you. Mounting was pretty easy, just used the plate holes. Havn't had time to wire them yet.

      Love the hellas. I am actually about to do the same thing to my mkiv. The task of actually mounting them is quite daunting.

      Mounting was easy. Just removed the grill, widened the plate holes a bit (don't need a front plate in FL) and placed em in.

      Not feeling all of the new, little stuff like the stickers, euro plate, or gas door.

      Yeah, the fuel door is already taken off, haha, it was on for about five minutes. And I get what you're saying, I guess I'll just hand the euro plate in my room or something.

      Welcome to the family. I like the Hellas. And the car. Wheel color looks great with UG.

      In 3+ years of .:R32 ownership, I have only seen one UG .:R32, and that was on the interstate in NC. Rarest color.
      Of course, my CW looks awfully United Gray from road salt and melted snow, until I wash it this afternoon with temps in the 50's!

      Keep the pics coming! Liven this place up a bit for the New Year!

      If you like it, I wouldn't take it off. You have to do what makes you happy, ya know?

      YES got Hella's wire up finally. And, as a nice little touch, wired them to the euro switch so they come on like regular fogs.

      Was it hard to wire the Hellas to the euro switch? Thanks for the idea.

      No. It was really easy. I just followed the part in the instructions to wire up regular fogs about how to connect it to the switch. Took 5minutes tops once everything was laid out.

      You are making it really hard for me to not want to order a set of Hellas...

      I want a set specifically for the Dragon.

      Do it man. These things are soooo much fun. I sat there for like 5 minutes just turning them on and off. Light output is good too.

      I like light bars too. My friend with a WRX has 4 on his. Completely reversible too.
