What year's of the GTI have the rectangular headlights and which have the round headlights? I really like the MkII's, I just don't like the rectangular lights.

the rounds look even more bad ass on mk2 jettas i think. singles or duals are all together bad ass in my opinion. im not sure what years were the rect and rounds.

i think that only the cabrios had the round headlights in the US, maybe some early rabbits...but the round headlights are european because all the mk2 gti's over there have round headlights...we never get the good stuff over here...someone correct if im wrong about this

ok here is how it goes to my best relect.
from 1989 and back, they are rectangual on all GTi, Golf and Cabrios. that inludes Rabbits and such. The Jetta only has rounds i believe on 1990 to 1992 GLi but i am not 100% on that. i hope i am right, but i am 100% that from 1990 to 1992 Golf/GTi/Cabrio all have rounds.

Thanks Timmy. One of the guys on Vortex told me that too. BUT, I did find out that the European MkII's ALL had round headlight for every year.....that's gay. So I've concluded that if I ever do (and hopefully some day I will) get an MkII I need a 90-92!

Thanks guys.

yeah, they are the best years for MKII. they have the 2.0 16v, and the big bumper kit. not to mention, i love the seats they put in them. overall, a much better looking and performing car.

Jetta's never came with round lights.just the cabs and Gti's.The 90-92 gti's had the 4 round.The like 82-84 (MAYBE) had the weird square single lights.
