MK6 GTI / Golf R Front Bumper Splitters (Dutch Parts Co.)

Hey Guys,

About a year ago I designed and made a prototype MK6 Golf R Splitter for my car. I wanted to make a part that was subtle, accentuated the lines of the car, and durable to the point that I didn't want to worry about smashing driveways or speed bumps with it. Once I finished it and people saw it in person / photos of it online, I got a lot of interest from others who wanted one for themselves. Since then I did a short production run and sold out pretty quickly of the Golf R design.

I decided to expand a bit so I did a design for the MK6 GTI. Eventually I'll be doing Golf R skirt extensions for all of you who are interested and hopefully making more designs for cars in the VW/Audi platform.

Anyways, below is a list of what I'm trying to achieve with this design and if you're interested in getting one for yourself you can check out the website I put together:

DutchPartsCo.bigcartel.com/

Thanks,

- Brian

----------------------------------------

STRONG AND DURABLE
All of our parts are made from High Density Polyethelene (HDPE) which is known for its high strength. HDPE cannot snap or break like other options on the market and it also has a very high abrasion resistance which means it can scrape the ground regularly without an issue. For our lowered car owners, worrying about hitting your bumper on curbs or coming out of steep driveways will be a thing of the past. We regularly slam our cars and know that the Dutch Parts Co. splitter will put up with whatever we throw at it.

SUBTLE STYLING
Add that “less is more” euro styling to your vehicle to make it stand out from the pack without drawing negative attention. Our motorsport-inspired designs are a sure fire way to accentuate the styling characteristics of your vehicle without going overboard.

GREAT ROAD PROTECTION
Keep your paint clean and guarded from road, driveway, and curb scrapes. Our parts regularly act as impact shields to protect your body panels from the harsh surfaces that your vehicle encounters every day.

AFFORDABLE
Our parts are less expensive and more bang for your buck than other carbon fiber and ABS plastic alternatives on the market. Many of our customers have been let down by competitor’s products breaking on them only to come to us for our more durable/cheaper option. Save yourself some cash and buy from us!

AMERICAN MADE
Designed, Manufactured, and Assembled in New Hampshire.

The blue and white R's are panty droppers.

It's $250 plus shipping which is typically about $30 so not too bad. The size of the packaging is what gets me since its pretty light.

Here's @itssti after he added an OEM Lip to his GTI. You can install the Splitter with or without the OEM Lip.

Interested in this. How is the install? Does it use the existing holes or is there drilling required?
I have a GTI with oem front lip.

The install is pretty simple. Most people can finish it in ~1hr to ~1.5hrs. You will need to drill a few holes but...

From the website:
"Works perfectly with or without the OEM lip and 5 of the 9 mounting holes already exist in the OEM bumper."

There are also instructions on the product page if you're interested:

Let me know if you have any other questions.
