Hey guys. I have been rocking the ABT grille on my black GTI for about 6 months now. Don't get me wrong, I love the grille, but as the spring comes in I am looking for a change. I am considering going back to the stock grille and sticking a little turbo badge on it. It is refreshing and OEM, while ABT is also very sweet. I am deadlocked between the two. Please tell me which you like on a black gti. Here they are:

option 1:


option 2:

thats a really tough choice, but a pluss about the stock one is you can sell the other one and get some eyelids with the left over cash

arjun, I have 2 questions for you...

1. As yo ucan see from my sig, I have an MKIV GTI, and I have a broken grill. I was wondering if you would be interested in selling whichever grill you decide not to use? Let me know in a post or send me a private message.

2. I noticed the MA plates, where in MA are you from? I am from Beverly and soon I will be moving to the Worcester area.

Thanks!

I see your dilemma, both look sweet, but I'm leaning towards the OEM grille with the Turbo badge.

Thanks very much for the replies, guys. As for the front vw badge, I have a black one lying around so I could do the black badge. My only fear is that it might clash against the hatch, where I have the three stock chrome badges. Dunno. Thats an easy switch though, and I will keep it in mind. I love both grilles, but right now I am really into the stock grille with the turbo badge. Hopefully Ill have it on the car soon.

personally, I'd get a Bonrath (I think that's the OEM-looking one with slats and no emblem) and put the turbo badge on that. for some reason the Bonrath grille looks awesome to me. just my opinion.

def keep it oem. with the turbo badge. I think the bugmod guy was selling turbo badges along with 20v (the turbo goes under the 20v badge)for the rear hatch. just something to think about, not to get things cluttered.

Is there any way to attach the turbo or maybe a 1.8T badge onto the ABT?

OR how about a custom vwforum "V"?
