      The wife and I are looking at picking up a B6 and came across the car in the link at a local dealer and I wasn't sure what the "body kit" on the car is. I remember VW came out with some sort of appearance package but can't remember for sure.

      Can you guys enlighten me as to what it is and if it is a desirable piece or not?

      Hi Def body kit offered by VW, never was a fan either although some people love it. Also on a side note I feel the price is a little high.

      Hi def kit was based of the Concept car at SEMA. The real car had 550HP AWD and looked sick. It got such a positive response that VW made a friendly version body kit.. I think it was around 4500 ordered.. the bumper alone was like 1900 but they went on sale.. 250 plus shipping.. you can piece it together if you shop around and get lucky.

      As they said, it should be a two tone color.. This just looks to plain. If I purchased this car.. I would use Black Vinyl wrap to make it look better.

      I have the rear bumper installed on my car.. although I did not paint it like OEM.
