they're currently on eBay at $286 plus $16 s&h. but there is still another day and 2 hours left on it. at this time tomorrow, i'll decide if i'm gonna bid higher. the problem is that i'm low on cash. but i've never seen these anywhere.

Well there goes my idea. I was so thinking of doing the same. Let me know how you make out with that.

I like the grill on that site but i would paint the wire black along with the rest of the grill. Dont really like the shiny chicken wire look.

that same website also sells a mesh grill for a jetta 3. i asked about that at car-tunes and they said that the mesh grill doesn't exist. the only ones are homemade grills that people convert and sell. i'm just glad i stuck with the 3 slat badgeless from bonrath. i can trust that company.

I got those bmw headlights on their way to me now. finally i get something that no one else has. there are a lot of white jettas around central pa. Its hard to look unique. i'll throw some pics on here once i get the lights on.

p.s. hey TNP96vw, i haven't seen your car around at all. do you hang out on the pike friday and saturday nights? its still winter, but the cars are already out crusing and parking at circuit city and wal-mart

yeah it was packed sat nite at circuit city and up at walmart. a few nice dubs were there. a white a3 vr6 with golf headlite conversion was pretty nice. i got some heads to turn when i rolled through with my shaving in progress. on that note we got the back 2 doors done over the weekend. next weekend we r planning on finishing the trim and other areas needed to be shaved. ill get pics up soon hopefully.

aight, i got the headlights in the other day. i'll try to post a picture or two tomorrow. right now my camera's batteries are dead.

the headlights look great except for a gap around the fenders.

i have a friend that can help me alter the fenders to make them fit better. but for the time being they look decent.

we're also going to try a new style 3-series hood extension/kidney grills deal on it.

I was just wondering why it says it takes approx. 1 hour to install that Kamei grill. Anyone know?

ok, i finally got the pictures on here. unfortunately, its snowing here in pennsylvania today.

the pictures actually turned out o.k.

they dont look just right yet because i still have to paint the eyebrows and alter the fenders to eliminate the small gaps on the sides.

i hope these show up.... this is my first picture post
