sorry the first two pics are a bit blurry as i couldnt see as the sun was right in my eyes and on the camera so i had to push the camera into the cars shadow, but hopefully you can get an idea roughly.

I bought some of these in March from Awesome, Blue V5. Imo, I prefer the look of them to the hofele items.

The clip on the back is held onto the vent with plastic rivets (best description I can think of !) and one of them half came off not long after I bought em.. easily fixed with some glue though. Sprayed em myself.. never sprayed a thing before in my life. so quite pleased with the results [:D]

Sugar79..

I think this must be a non gti model specific thing, i know mine doesn't have a towing eye there, just the intercooler. on the right hand side (as you look at the car), there is the horn and temp gauge mounting point however.

How do ! I'm not sure i've ever seen a towing eye in the front of mine.. there's one at the back but not sure about the front. If I remember, i'll check tonight.

They should all have a screw in front eye, and they are usually there for lashing the car down on transporters or more often used for lashing the car on a rolling road dyno.

The actual eye should be in the boot with the tools.

you can see a small dent in the bumper on the picture up top. cant tell if its enough to have pushed it all out of shape tho, it looks minor.
