      you don't have headlight washers....those are just blank plates. just tie the side marker wires back in case you ever have to put a stock bumper back on.

      Thanks for the reply. Good to know on the blank plates those are gone for sure then. Which models actaully come with washers there? That was my plan for marker lights. Should I leave the bulbs in them or if I take them out will it give a code?

      The only US model that gets the washers is the Golf R. The GTI has them in other countries. Unless you are running a rest of world code for LED tails with fog that lets you remove the bulbs, I would leave them in so you don't get the bulb out error.

      I'm getting mine back tomorrow. Rear bumper reflectors and everything on front shaved, but I kept the tow hook . Finally can run without the front plate.

      I went all or nothing haha. Figured I'd just remove the bumper if I needed to get towed.

      Beyond the gloss black that someone did and the other cf ones.. I haven't noticed a color-matched white before..

      I'd think it gets dirty real quick, no? Knowing how rich these engines run and norm road grime - keep it clean!

      Shaved (almost) everything. Left the tow hook cover cause there ain't no way I'm pulling the bumper off.
