      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.

      Yea but 95% of the people at a show don't even notice the shaved bumpers unless its parked next to an unshaved MKVI

      Somewhat regretting not getting the towhook shaved but oh well, it still looks so much better than before.

      Looks good OP!

      I really like the shaved front bumper. The color-matched side skirts aren't bad. I'm not a fan of the color-matched lower rear valance. It makes the rear of the car look fat.

      That's stock. Just molded in to the bumper cover. Looks perfect with black, I don't think white can pull it off.
