      I was thinking of the Blackout European LED Tail light......thinking it would look good with the black car??

      I'm not really a low and stretched kind of guy ( although I appreciate the look, just not for me) I do like to tinker with other stuff on my cars.

      They(Black LED Tails) don't get a lot of love here on Vortex, but I'm interested in seeing them on a MK5 to make up my own mind. Do it

      You're welcome, there aren't many people running the black out LEDs, the cool thing about them is you can hook up the inner trunk pieces to a power source (license plate lights) and when you turn them on the led ring lights blue. Only the black outs had that option...

      I really like the cherry reds, I'm eventually going to have my tails tinted slightly to get the cherry color to tone down the bright red.... But I want mine lighter than the way yours look, kinda the way the euro R32 tails look

      I got these from ECS, just swapped out rear fog. To my knowledge, same cherry red plastic used on .:R style lights.

      I've also seen someone split the clear/silver votex lenses and installed on LEDs for a totally clear look. Quick search for pic yielded neg results.

      i like the way ur back looks.
      Just two things though.
      1.Those pieces that you put on in the back bumper look off/not aligned.
      2.it might just be my eyes but the color doesnt match the rest of the car.

      I should make a GLI Cup Edition sticker for my car heeeheee Totally kidding, although I do work in the right department to make it happen!! I love the TDI Cup Edition styling, just not a fan of the TDI. Although it gets excellent gas mileage, I still like the performance side of the gas engines

      yeah i get great fuel economy with diesel. but with enough money and overtime, i can mod the engine to perform around 200-230 hp and over 300lbs of torque. itll be a torque monster!

      Just two things though.
      1.Those pieces that you put on in the back bumper look off/not aligned.

      Thanks, i messed with the coloring (contrast, saturation, brightness, etc) a bit in the pictures, so that's probably why it looks slightly different; the match is pretty good i think, you can see some more on my flickr.

      And as for the alignment of them, the caractere rear valence alignment is not so great.... i've heard it is because they were made for the european rear bumpers, but i don't know if there is any truth to that... I'm going to try to straighten them out this summer i'm hoping.

      thanks for the input
