      It's been a long time coming, but it's finally here! The fifteen52 Mk6 Jetta +Line Front Bumper will soon be available! We held off putting out much information until we knew the first production run of bumpers were done and on the way. Too much reading for you? Skip down to the FAQ section for the summary.

      If you had seen the old thread showing off the prototype (as in the picture above), you'll know a good amount about it. We've made some changes over the last year that have reduced the originally anticipated MSRP by over 50%. As planned, the bumper is manufactured using a high-quality FRP composite making it both durable and flexible. Fitment is excellent and very little finishing work is needed prior to paint.

      The first production run of bumpers is on the way and expected in 3-4 weeks. The price is $499.52, plus shipping (and sales tax if in California). We are offering a 10% discount off MSRP for those willing to put down a 50% deposit. This basically holds your place "in line" and secures a bumper from the first production run. Only 10 bumpers are coming in now, more are expected to be available in October.

      Email sales@fifteen52.us with any questions, or call 213-373-1552. See the FAQ section below for the rundown.

      -

      FAQ

      How much?

      MSRP is $499.52 plus shipping - pre-order customers receive a 10% discount

      How is it shipped?

      Due to the size of the packaging, shipping is by truck freight only and cost is calculated using the destination Zip Code. Email us at sales@fifteen52.us for a freight quote

      Available when?

      We expect to start shipping bumpers in approximately 4 weeks

      Do I pay in full right now?

      No, a 50% fully-refundable deposit it all that's required to secure one of the first 10 bumpers. You can use the PayPal link below or call us with your credit card info

      What's it made of?

      FRP composite (a flexible fiberglass reinforced with plastic)

      Does it come painted?

      No. Due to the difficulties in off-site paint matching and the potential for damage during shipping, all bumpers come in primer form

      Does it come with grilles?

      Yes. The grilles are part of the one-piece bumper design and can be painted the same color as the bumper or masked off and painted gloss black to match the OE upper grille

      Does it come with LED strips?

      No, but you can order them from your dealer (Golf R part) and install them yourself. Keep in mind you will need to modify your front bumper support for adequate clearance

      Is it lower than the stock bumper?

      Yes, a little

      Is there a full kit (skirts and rear valence) coming?

      Yes, the rest of the +Line kit will be available late this year

      How many are you making?

      First run will be limited to 10 bumpers, but more will arrive sometime in October

      Here are some more shots of the prototype:

      Thanks for saying that

      It's been ridiculously difficult in getting to this stage, but there comes a point where you keep moving forward out of principle as much as anything else

      If there is any way to ship to Canada (K2P 0W3), I'd place an order right now.

      Lol, sorry, but these are the first bumpers to come in, and we didn't bother painting the prototype since it was only used to make the mold.

      Lack of smilies makes me think I might have offended you - not at all intentional! I was just joking around and I apologize if I crossed a line.

      Your desire to see a finished painted product is 100% reasonable and if I could provide such details for you I certainly would.

      We realize that ordering "sight unseen" isn't an ideal proposition, and that's the main reason for the 10% discount we're offering

      I was joking 100%, imitating a Craigslist scammer.

      I was just counter-humoring! All good

      Damnit. This lease is looking more and more like a buy out every week and I've only had it for three weeks haha bumper looks awesome. I'm sure I'll be buying one of these in the next couple months. You do plan on stocking these correct? No limited three 10 bumper runs right? I don't want to have to rob an old lady to get in on this bumper haha

      It depends on long-term demand, of course, but we have no plans to limit production overall. We can't afford to have 50 of them sitting on a shelf at any time, though, so fairly small runs will be the most likely scenario.

      Not sure, but for shipping purposes the box dimensions will determine pricing.

      Feel free to shoot us an email for box dimension specs - info@fifteen52.us

      Awesome. I definitely wanted to do a few more things before I would do a bumper so I'm glad I don't have to rush. Maybe I'll even be able to see what it looks like on some tempest blues before I buy
