      What front bumper is that?

      Or was it custom made for the intercooler/turbo setup that guy has?

      I've never been a fan of those osir skirts for some reason. I think reiger skirts are simiar iirc.

      Quite a list. Keep us updated. And post pics!

      I would think you would need a whole front end conversion. Don't quote me on that. I could be way off.

      Similar to the oettinger grille, it's also made for the GTI and not the R.

      The GTI and R use the same fenders, so in theory, they should fit

      So on Newing catalog GTI-RS Front yen is list 84,000 yen and the silver carbon grill is 39,900 yen.. give or take is around 1025 and 487 dollars.. If that won't fit the R32 carbon Front Lip Spoiler is 84,000 yen. hmmm maybe I should call my family first... lol

      The bumper is the Newing Alpil GTI-RS front bumper. It looks great. It fits our cars, you need a couple GTI for the grill/emblem. But other than that it's a direct fit.





      1552 is the US distributor for Newing Alpil.

      The carbon lip is awesome for our cars as well. I had that before I went wide. I sold it to a friend in Washington. With shipping and such it's around 1000 bucks, but worth every penny in my book.

      Newing parts aren't cheap, but the quality is there. They fall on the car as if they were meant to be there.

      Thanks, bud

      The GTI-RS front bumper is amazing quality and a perfect fit (Like William said the R needs some GTI parts).

      We prefer tweaking the GTI lower grilles to fit vs. using the metal mesh that comes with the kit.

      Working on it

      Some parts are not in stock and need to be ordered - unfortunately, the dollar has lost 18% against the yen since the last time we worked out our pricing, so I need to make a couple adjustments.
