Well, it seems ages ago since i last had a mod done on the car and Isimply went into the dealer for 1Litre of oil and ended up coming out with.....

an R32 body kit and a place to have it painted and fitted [:O] (Damn expense oil)

Some photos below of the front and side skirts on the car. First few are before shots -

Very nice!! how much was it all in??[:p]
I'll let you know once it has all been finished.

As for the brakes being painted, I was thinking this but did considered R32 ones but they not fit under the Santa Monicas and I want to keep those lovely wheels so very unclear what to do with them.

Thanks for the kind words though [:D]

@Walrus - a tuning company when I orginally go the car and was thinking about doing this 1st before remap. Would they fit then under the OEM Santas then [:)] We are talking the whole brake discs and calipers etc.... at 334mm if i am correct in the size?

@ Andrew - was a very expensive 1Litre of oil but looks like it was worth every penny and I still got the rear to do as well yet [H]

Wow, thats a seriously nice motor, still looks the dogs even with the standard front bumper.

Santas + r32 kit looks spot on, they look tons better than the standard r32 wheels in my opinion

Check out 'golfturbo' car, the thread should be on this page or the
next one, his is the same as yours with santas and r32 front.

Looks pretty good that [Y]

Although I do think you need bigger wheels [:)], anything smaller than 18" just look lost with those big bumpers and skirts.....just my opinion.

Mark you know what I think. Cool car buddy!

Another one joins the R-Fold! [<:eek:)]

Did you not use the numberplate plinth to keep it smooth? Looks good!

EB - the number plate plinth is only on the 3door R32 front bumper and not 5door ones so as I have a 5door Golf, i just had to get the right front bumper but to keep it looking good I've also order 2x VW Wolfsburg number plate frames direct from VW Germany and should be getting these in the next few days. Then it'll look even better.

Thanks for all your comments guys, I appreciate them all [:D]

That is such good news as I may get some later this year then [:D]

Would certain set the wheels off rather well. When I look at my wheels, the brake discs look so big but againts the R32 ones rather small hence why i beleived the tuner when they said 'not a chance'. So eBay will be my area to see if I can get the discs, calipers, and anything else they sell for it at the same time [:O]

http://www.euromelee.com/r32.wmv video or said r32 with santas on for winter tyres rick click save as.

Link to foxys old steed to show you the good old r32 brakes I think he even did a how to on them as well.

I agree the are a worthwile and at the right price cheap upgrade.

Anyway ta ra for know and slap the tuner who does not know his business when you see them next.

@Walrus - thanks fo rhte 2 links mate [:)]

One careful owner then in the vidows I'd say [;)] It was good to see the Santas on a R32 though as I can see how close the calipers come to the inner rims of the wheels. Still looks good though.

Seems this forum going to to make me spend more money now [:O]

It should definately come with a forum warning of helping spend your hard earned cash

Looks really good, I like the Bumper and Santas combo, though the
skirts make them look a little small, maybe some small spacers would
sort that.

Love it!
