      I was going to be nice but you seem to be cocky and don't take well to constructive criticism.

      You are headed in the wrong direction. Car looks dumb, and that's putting it nicely.

      Less is more.

      Painted emblems and painted taillights are about the dumbest things you could do to your car.

      Take pride in that limited edition car you own.

      I have a Fahrenheit and I did the camo thing and what not but that is gone. Stock grill stock rack. The PO painted that stupid stripe so spring it's getting painted and yea I have a tinted film on my tails cause I didn't like red on orange. And my emblems are black cause I dont like chrome. But seriously one thing I have notice is less is more when you have a bright orange or yellow car. And one thing about mk5s is that they are classy cars when clean and simple. Santorum and psu are right.

      Sorry man but i kinda agree with what everyone is saying, too much black on a Fahrenheit can end up being tacky. there is nothing wrong with a black and yellow theme just as long as the black isn't overdone.

      say, for your car.... take it apart your rear emblem, paint the backing Imola Yellow and leave the "VW" black like this. That will give the emblem dimension rather than being a giant black dot. remove the rear GLI badge, ditch the chrome license plate cover for a black one, remove those blacked out tail lights get some euro tails and smoke them to a dark red rather than black or get these, leave the "Fahrenheit"...

      as for the front you could go badgeless, loose the emblems all together (or at least paint the GLI black too), paint the red strip and side markers Imola Yellow. Done.

      and for extra credit you could always get the euro gti front lip, paint the outer Imola, leave the inner black like this, do the same in the rear like this, paint sideskirts imola, give the car a great drop, keep those wheels, maybe add some spacers, and window tint. and boom an awesome black and yellow Fahrenheit!

      that's just my opinion though

      first of all, who says that ill even be doing any more black? Secondly, i am getting a badgeless grill...im gonna go with a wolfy styled grill but with no emblem and I would be stupid for getting rid of the "fahrenheit" sticker. And the funny thing is that my tail lights arent even as dark as they were in the above pic. They have faded into more of a black/red, and you can see the insides of the tail lights now. I didn't add a clear coat, thats why

      Welcome to the Vortex...if they don't like it, it's dumb, tacky, etc. You'll always and forever get "more low".

      Now "that's" constructive criticism....hopefully, others can lean what that really means.

      All that said, it's your car that you pay for....do what makes you happy and eff the rest if they don't like it. If you're like me, you don't buy/build/mod your car so others will be happy.

      Someone on the forum painted the inside of a black front emblem yellow, it looked really good, I want to do that too, but I feel like i would be ripping off that person I agree with the too much black ruins the fahrenheit.


      But do what you like, its your car.

      "First of all" i wasn't implying that that you were or weren't goin' to do anything else in black i just figured a black and yellow them is what you were after with your car (due to every cosmetic change you have done for the exterior and engine bay has been black or yellow)

      "Secondly" i didn't know you were getting a badgeless grill. Unless i missed it, you only said you were going to swap for a wolfy grill and asked FAHRENHEITLAD how much for a stock grill. judging by those posts you wanted the stock version.

      i wasn't implying that you were stupid by mentioning leaving the the Fahrenheit sticker on if thats what you thought. the tails are fading? cool! let em fade til they look smoked then lock em in with clear coat

      i don't know if that was sarcasm or not... but i was just putting up what i would do with his car. Merely offering my opinion and suggestions. figured that would be better than the usual forum response.

      after all in the end doesn't really matter what "we" think, it's his car, but when you post pictures of your car you are opening yourself up for criticisms, both good and bad. i say take them with a salt. as long as your happy man

      No sarcasm.... 100% liked what you posted .. and you took the time to include links to what you were expressing as what you would think looks good. 100% awesome post and great constructive criticism.

      I even looked at your suggestions.

      I like your car man (there are a few things maybe I wouldn't do) and I hear all that you're saying but when you fire back, it kind of just adds fuel to the fire.

      Try to just roll with punches.

      Thanks, i just think it's funny how people put up pictures and get so defensive when people try and give ideas or says they don't like something. if they can't handle the possible negative responses, then it's best for them not to post... then again, those kinda threads are fun to read at times..

      I Love the Fahrenheit GLI. I have to give props to people who try to cosmetically modify them. When done right, they can look amazing, but its so easy so make 'em look tacky. I took the easy route and went with a Black GLI... gives me more leeway

      Anyways to the O.P. Good luck man. your car has potential with patience and planning i bet yours will come out nicely.

      Hey guys, finally got a few pics of my girl. Here she is.






      Since this pic was taken, I've added yellow fog light overlays and smoked side bumper signals. So far, that's it. Stock other than that and some 35% tint. Whatdya think?

      Oh yeah, and the guy who had the car before me put those wheels on too. I don't know why, I love the ones that came stock on the Fahrenheit. Oh well.
      My other vehicle is an airplane
