howdy!

i'm an official member of the BCS squad......

lets begin with a quick relook at what arrived a few weeks ago........

(sorry for no pics of the skirts, just look naff really :p )

as you can see, justmatz supplied me with a plate surround (WOLFSBURG EDITION), a uk-mkiv member supplied me the number plate plinth, ebay.de sent me the clear outer grilles....

the centre grill? well, BCS ran out of them, he suggested a trip to my local stealer, which i did, they said "yes mr gullible, we have lots, see you in 3 working days"

only to be told "sorry sir, we have one coming first class on leather recaros from germany for you. see you in 7-10 working days"

don't get me started on the arch lining extensions, i think the bloke i ordered from got lucky the night before, NEVER have i had such a helpful monkey!

a random ebay auction later......

(still drying and the broom is to stop it sagging!)

yes, i am currently driving around with one skirt on. i know, i am a silly boy!

wat about the front bumper, i hear you say, well listeners, tune in friday where you'll see it after spraying, fitted and i'll tell you where to get freshly made plates for ?20 a pair!

hope you like what you see!

cheers,

jammy

Single sideskirts and broom spoiler supports could be the next big thing, you could be a styling visionary. [:p]

I'd check on the delivery of you centre grille as I ordered one from my dealer and 2 months later no sign of the flipping thing, specially ordered my butt cheeks [:mad:]

really? well i'll have another play with it on friday, but i know that its not from trial fitting it (drill the holes out before spraying it)

it bulges out at the sides [:(]

i got a LCR splitter to glue onto it too some how!

i just realised why it doesn't fit perfectly!

when you try to line the arch up with it, you pull it tight to get a screw into it!

with the extensions i have, i won't have the problem!!!

i reckon it'll be a perfect fit!

my problem is that the front bumper is about 1cm too wide on the drivers side. so the front with (arch line) comes down and then the front bumper sticks out a bit wide for it.

is that what you mean?

its not a genuine one veedubs! i paid ?235 from ebay for bumper and skirts. spraying i haven't paid for it yet!

i know i should of taken pics after i washed it on friday afternoon, but i was in a rush.

after a 340 mile round trip (bournemouth to GTI International and back) its filthy!!!!

i'll be honest, the fits not perfect. like skierandy's it bulges at the sides [:(]

the arch extensions work well though and seeing lots of R32's yesterday showed i had done it right [:)]

pics will be up soon, lemme wash it first.

i just need to screw the extension in at the top! [:)]

i brightened this one so you can see the clear grilles from ebay.de and my dodgy ducting/air intake for the induction kit!

justmatz supplied the plate surround, myshowplates.com supplied the new number plate.

proper kamei grille from awesome GTI and all thats left to do at the mo is put the LCR splitter on!

hope you like it!

on my car the bumper fits much worse on the drivers side than the passenger side. could have been the way it was fitted.

when i get the bumper off and have a fiddle ill tell you if i can get it perfect [:p]

Your r32 bumpered cars looking good. Do the replica bumpers have a recess for the vw badge? and hows your bumper handling the stone chips and stuff?
