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've just ordered some fk grille inserts from awesome. ?35 inc postage! but the are gonna take around 2 weeks they need to be ordered from fk.
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.
