I would especially like to see a black colour coded GTI as I'm getting mine done next week - anyone got a photo? In the meantime here is a red one my local dealer did - any comments? I like it - the photographs don't do it justice - it looked far better in the 'flesh'.

I agree Jase, it needs something but can't put my finger on it.

I think a twin exit exhaust like the R32 style Milltek would suit it a treat.

I'd be tempted to fill the the gap between the rear valance and bumper, like in that photoshop Mk5 R36 pic.

Not a big fan of red, but I like the colour coding. In a black or blue it'd look mint.

I think the black bits only really suit a red or white GTI.

Should have done the back skirt like this:

Thats nice. How I plan to do mine, using the Caractere rear valance and the twin "R32 style" Milltek system. (Or as Foxy likes to call it, Milltek Wheel Barrow System [:D])

Turbo.... looks spot on like your second post.

I will be wanting to do that in 10 months time or however long is going to take for me to be able to afford the thing!

- will be interested in seeing your pics when you have done it.

Regarding cost, I just got a quote from Gorgie Dealer in Edinburgh, they said it would take 6h labore as they had to remove the bumpers and sand it down 1st.

It was about ?295 for every thing including VAT.

Mind you, he said that the paint job is warranted. With IMO is worth it.

That looks great. I will definitely be colour coding mine sometime soon(ish). IMHO the black plastic bits look horrible and really spoil the GTI.

How easy would it be to leave that plastic section as shown above?

It would be very easy because the red paint follows a moulding line.

I had quotes between ?200 and ?350 if I took all the parts off and put them back on myself (which I'm doing), and between ?350 to ?600 for a garage to do the dismantling, painting and reassembly.
