Its been a while since i started to think i needed to do a build thread so here it goes:

This is how i bought it(not my car but you get the idea)

First mod was cleaning it and buying some nice alloys along with some oem gti badges for the baby.

I always liked fog lights and i never saw a golf iv with some so i did a little searching and came up with some nice fog lights with the grill that looked real good so ordered and fitted

Posted Image


left grill off

Posted Image


drilled the holes for the fog lights

Posted Image


wiring done

Posted Image


aaand finished

Posted Image


i then decided on some blue bulbs for the low beams

i then went to my local garage for a custom exhaust which gave me a nice sound

looked pretty oem we had to cut the bumper a bit but it was ok [:p]

a couple of random ones with a friend and the new exhaust

then i decided that my rear lights needed changing so i ordered some cheap clear rear lights and installed them pretty easily tbh

yeah lose the gti badges especially as you have got the red eye ones! Standard gti lights and badges removed will look better.

Oh and i think you have sprayed your brake pads too [:-*]

Looking really good so far Mate and some different touches, which is what it's all about. [Y]

Are you planning to get the damage to the front bumper and drivers door mirror sorted at some point? It's the only thing letting the car down so far, IMO.
