Hello all,

After 3 months I have finally managed to get some pics of my motor. I'm
looking for some ideas to make it look a little sexier. Im new to the
golf seen so not really sure what to do. Nothing too OTT but just cool.
As you can see it from the pics it is totally standard at the moment.
Any opions will be greatly appreciated.

If you want to keep it looking oem and cool how about some Santa monica wheels or RS4's imo and get all the black strips and door handles colour coded and change the rear lamps to some RBBR's that to me would set the car off nicely and maybe a 30mm drop to make it look more to the ground after the rims have been fitted.. Your cars a great starting point as its like a blank canvas.. [y]

Cheers Sat, what do you reckon to these wheels?

What size wheel do you think i should go for? 17" or 18"s?
Id like to get it lowered and have been looking into geting the one of the koni kits.
How do I go about getting the strips and handles colour coded? Is that something to do myself or get a pro to do? I thought that because of the odd colour paint it would be a bit risky for me to do anything with it. If i should get it done elsewhere, is it spenny?

and a quick picture of when i gave the car a once over and made the wheels look more shinier with a bit of wax lol

Also the best place to get the bits sprayed i would say any good sprayer as they will know what to do.. i.e. platsic primer.. normal primer.. paint.. hardening.. and polishing they should be able to get it to an oem finish if there any good. [y]

Are yours replicas then? Is there much difference between them? Im
fairly poor so unless the replicas are rubbish i would probably be
tempted to get them at that price. I deffinately like them on yours.

In regards to the trim, is it easy to get off? I dont actually know what colour my car is. i just call it green....

Yep mine are reps... i paid ?460 for them and they came with partworn nearly new kuhmo's quite grippy tyre at that.. I think that the bumpers have to come off and pops out the trim.. the side strips would need to be done on the car.. and yea its green [:p]

your car is the same colour as mine fella, you could even fit some black 18 inch rims and do the black an green thing tie in the door handles and rub strips and maybe fit some RBBR's and some black anni style headlights as well and then drop the height a little would look sweet

would be different, maybe black bbs rims with polished lips, anni head lights, maybe have the rubstrips and handles painted black to make it look a little smarter,black wing mirrors maybe and black badgeless grill

I thought about getting black rims cos i quite like the green on black look. Any suggestions for the wheels? Also does anyone have any pics of RBBRs (preferably on a car this colour) as I dont know what they look like. I didnt really like this colour to start with but its really grown on me, dont see too many of em about either. Yours is looking sweet red-jeffers! how much is it lowered by and what size rims you got?

Would it be worth painting the trim black or just keeping it neat with back to black stuff?

also, can anyone point me in the direction of a pic of these anni lights? Im afraid i dont know what any of these mods look like. I would love some bbs rims but im thinking they may be VERY expensive. [:(]
