Great work so far. Staying tasteful.
Anyways, I know you're paying a pretty penny for the badgeless grille... But I've heard they'll be coming stateside at a more affordable price. Either way though, subscribed for pics.

Thank you sir! And yeaa I been hearing that as well but rumors, I don't want to trust so I went ahead and ordered the one from Germany and with shipping it came up to 360 which is pricey but hoping that I would be one of the first ones in states to have one kinda made me just go for it!

I took my stock grill few times and there's no notch on the bumper, only on the hood!

At first, I was going to buy the golf top grill but I don't really like when the top grill doesn't match the bottom one so I wanted to custom fit the golf grill into the Gti bumper (was already done on vortex) but that's too much work, esp since I really like how the honeycomb looks on our cars!

And I'm thinking about painting both grills gloss black..

yeah, that may be possible. but if so, then where are they?
i think they probably just said that because in your mind, it reinforces your purchase. sorry, i was a psych major.

Well I did it The secret is not to rush! Read the instructions over and over again and have someone there with u to help out.
Remove the intake, remove the battery, pierce through the fire wall, vent hole, some zip tying, then tap into headlight switch wires and ur good to go!
