Done all the time, some parts may require minor trimming but if you stick with the good names, there will be no problem. What componets are u thinking of, we could provide more information if we know the exact parts.

Whatever you do...stick to German body accessories, and don't rice it out. As long as you adhere to those rules, you'll probably be ok.

itll look fine, that is what I did and I think how it turned out looks better than any one kit does on the market. This kind of stuff is what customizing your car is all about.

true. I agree. your dub is how you want to make it. just make sure the lines flow with eachother (example: lines from the bumper flow to the side skirts, from the side skirts to the rear bumper. keep it german. best.

Pleae please please. None of that rice shit that i keep seeing. I hate to admit it but some of the teen getting into the VW scene are just doing some crap stuff.

Remember to keep with german stuff. keep your lines clean and One of the easiest improvement you can do is to get some spacers for your wheels they look great on your existing body. you could just paint your valances and add some spacers. they look great. Also VW has some great looking fenders so by adding some spacers and may be replacing the fromt and rear valances you should be good to go for less.

Good luck finding something great. also no stickers please

I've seen this too. I can see if you want to put on a aulminum wing but.... when you start doing the bling bling rims, Universal Exhaust that just sticks out and sounds nasty, and some of the other little rice stuff, someone needs to be shot. i'll try and take a picture of an example this weekend.

that's exactly how i feel. there are some people around me that have aluminum wings on jetta's and everytime i see it i start to cry from how bad it looks.


stick with german body kits and you'll be set. those have the best looks!

I mixed mine up as well "TOTALLY" and have yet to receive a negative comment. At least in my face, what goes behind my back stays behind my back.

If you like it, do it. Who cares what other people are really thinking. The famous quote "to each his own" It's done all the time, looks damn good all the time. Fact is, IMO there arent very may complete body kits that look good. Mixing and matching comes out looking good as long as its the same style parts. Be a leader, not a follower (I totally agree about the alum. Wing, Wings West kitted cars, and Rice exhaust tho)

Your car seems to have a continuous style regardless of "mixing" so it looks good to me
I like the look of what you've done very much - I haven't seen another one like it around that is for sure!
