I suppose the argument might be that there are other ways to tow it or pull it out of a ditch, etc.
Just my opinion. I have considered shaving it before. This my 3rd bumper shave, but always pass.

Speaking of bumpers, the last time I took the bumper off, it did not go back on as tight. The gap has gotten pretty big. Mine has probably been off about 10x so far and I am guessing the little clips stretched with all that. I did not sweat it since I knew the 35ed was going on shortly.
Any tips on preventing this? Is it the plastic stretching or that plastic clip/rail needs replacing?
OEM 35th anniversary edition front conversion project all done. Happy with how it turned out. Gives the front a nice OEM look, but with a nice flare. I decided to colormatch the lower spoiler instead of the gloss black. I have a 2nd lower spoiler which is gloss black coming from ECS, so I will leave that black and see how it looks at some point.
I think I am done messing with the front.
At the same time, I did the GTI grille stripes in satin black instead of the red.
Also flat blacked my TwinCooler, so it does not distract from the front.
Also removed the GTI emblems on the front and rear.
Also got the 35/R side skirts installed.
