      For those interested in mounting driving lights, just this a.m. I found a slick approach you may want to use. It was a bracket - specific for front mounting driving lights - the bracket mounts to the license plate bracket, then provides mounting points for two lights. Neat in that there would be no new holes to drill - provided you have a front plate.

      Now, do you think I can remember where I saw it so that I can post the link!?!?

      And he got side swiped and had to repaint half of a side of the car. Long story short, it was $25 out of his pocket to do 2 tone...why not? Origional

      Sucks, but this is the perfect excuse to get a set of Euro LEDs!

      Alrighty. Finally some pics. Excuse the dirty car.

      Painted front and rear emblems a light blue. It looked like it would match my calipers at first. I kinda like it though.



      Rear wiper delete and wrapped the rear parcel cover.

      Nice look for the wiper delete mod!

      Not a fan of the blue VW symbol at all, though. I don't think it fits very well.
