I see this kit for sale, it comes with the grill pieced and everything you'd ever want foglights to come with
, but it says not reccomended for the turbo (for the ones on e-bay, golf and jetta)...anyone know the reason for this? And why doesn't Hella's website say anything about this?

They say that because the fog lights in the grill may restrict airflow to the intercooler. They don't say it will, just that it might. Realworld: lots of people have done it without a problem. I thought about getting those too but I've bought into the whole letting my turbo (and CAI) get as much air as possible.

i was under the impression that they did make these same type of fog lights which worked for a turbo car.

Check out tmtuning.com. I think on page 2 of their golf 4 exterior they have some fogs with air vents also. Remember, the intercooler is behind the vent on the passenger side, and if you have a CAI it's on the driver's side so blocking air flow to these can hurt performance (Just means you need to buy a front mount, and pop an itg filter in the stock box with a rerouted 3" pipe for air flow
).

The ones they list for the jetta are open, they look like they'd allow air through just fine...I might just have to look into a set of these.

I have the bumper vents without the fogs and I like them. The ones with the fogs are quite sharp looking. I'd do a fender liner mod at least on my intercooler side when installing these just to get a bit more air flow in there.

I have got my European 4Motion front spoiler cut open on the side vents to allow more air to reach my CAI, but then again, not too many people have a European bumper to run this valence...at least on Golfs. The Jetta will accept a 4Motion front spoiler stock...
