hay guys i just need some advice.
well i'm getting my dent fixed very soon and i will also be getting my front and rear valences painted. i really want a wing so i decided that i will buy one but i just need your opinion on which one. the 337 wing is out of the question because that is toooooo small. i was looking at the freedom design spoiler but i just wanna hear what you guys recommend.

ya i saw urs but i never knew that vw offered that wing. i just thought they offered the 337 wing.
how much does the oem cost as compared to the aftermarket?(if u don't mind me asking)

I bought my car used and it had the VW wing already on it. I really like it. Makes it stand out from other GTI's and adds to its sporty character. I think I may have seen one other VW in the year that I've had my car with a wing.

hahahaah u guys actually think i'll turn my vw into a honda type car with a metal wing on the roof! i've seen civics with those stupid wings and there a joke. the cars i've seen with those wings can't even reach 100 km/h(60 mph) without maxing out!

i know the difference between a honda(rice) and a vw(power and class). my only 2 choices for wings are the freedom design and the oem upper hatch wing.

but thanks anyways guys for the advice

riced out civics with metal wings

well there's always the wings west one

There are others out there. It just seems that for the people on here, those are the most popular. You might wanna look on vwparts.com or performance cafe, you'll be able to find more there.

What the [email protected]#$ was that? I have a good share of mods on my car and i dont even have any sticker on with the exception of the old GTI logo. I removed all the GTI and 1.8T out.
Now let talk about wings. i have factory wings on mine. They are clean and simple but i personally think they look great. I have already bought the 337 front valence and 4 motion rear valence. I cant wait got it to get painted. So check Out your VW dealer for your spoiler. i think you can get them cheaper their if you are interested in the look of it.

correct me if i'm wrong but doesn't your gti come with the golf 4 motion rear valence or something similar to that. on my gti i have something that looks similar to it with the exhaust tip cut out.

i'm a little confused can someone correct me on this.

To answer your question, i belive in later 2002 models, they started to have the 4-motion rear variance. I have a 3001.5 GTI and it did not come with the cut out. HTH.

WOW jon!!! you have the 3001.5 GTI!!!!??? hehe, I know what you ment.
--1point8T, jon is correct. the 99.5-2002 DONT have the cut out. as for the newer models (2003+) have the cutout for the exhaust. I got the 4 motion rear valence for mine (2000), so my exhaust looks sexy in the cutout.

OMG, what the hell did that person do to his car!!!!?????

He must have been HONDA influenced...
What a waste of money...I could have spent that kind of money on a new Prada bag, some GUCCI shoes, etc...
