Are you swapping the steering wheel out?

Any reason you're not running an HID kit for the low beams? Seems like you have projector housings, so they would have the proper beam pattern. And, not to mention, be guaranteed to be brighter than the LED DRLs. ha


Thatís my next move for sure. Waiting to order bumper. Once I have that painted and read to go, Iíll remove the headlights again and put a kit

I thought the GTD wheel was a GTI wheel with a different badge on the lower part? Gtd as opposed to GTI

Hey all, new update. Installed the rear boot of a totaled GTI and threw on the GTD emblem.

I kinda installed the emblem a bit tight to the top, so my OCD is kicking in. Not worth the reinstallation though - thoughts?





Up next are tints on Monday...finally.

Looking good! If I knew about the GTD earlier, I might have considered doing the same conversion to my JSW TDI. The GTD badges are expensive though! I ended up going badgeless with the exception of a big red Turbo Diesel badge on the trunk

Do you know if the mounting holes for the mud guards are the same for your Golf compared to a 2011 JSW?

Looks pretty sharp. I think debadged and deflapped would be an even cleaner look.

Agreed, but it looks great as is.
