Is it just me or is there no pic?

I nearly voted for it though [:$]as I like all the MkV Caractere stuff I have seen so far. Would be my choice to mod with and no mistake.

They have also released Mk5 GTI parts. The front bumper is a blend of
the Caractere front bumper pictured above and the stock GTI one, while
they now have an option for the rear valance to fit with the GTI
exhausts. (Or a Milltek for your TDI)

Caractere - Mk5 GTI Leaflet PDF

Note the BBS CH's they've used and how stunning it looks [:D]

Although the roof spoilers, side skirts and hatch blend doesn't really appeal to me. Prefer the stock GTI parts for those bits.

RSD has both the Mk5 and Mk5 GTI Caractere parts for sale.

anybody got any prices on the Caractere GTI kit yet?
RSD have the price for the full kit listed on their site as ?1,1997.50 including VAT.

I asked the price for the rear valance and its ?260. UK-MKIVs members also get 10% off.

There is only one rear valance; basically you get the exhaust trim with
it, and if your not getting RSD to fit it, you or the garage you use
have to cut the valance and fit the trim depending on where your
exhausts exit (there's trim for single and dual exit exhausts).

?234 for the rear valance [:)] - Definitely be getting that when I get my Milltek fitted.

does anyone know which alloys are on the MKV in the pics above? (posted by JMcQueen) they look savage :)
I don't remember the name of the manufacturer. MRK IV and R1GTI have them on their cars, and I therefore assume AmD sell them. Danny at RSD told me he was not impressed with the quality as fitted to his MkV demo car - each wheel was misshapen after few miles.
