Talking Red Stripe Removed!

Only the upper part of the strips... I feel this when I saw a Mk7 GTI from the internet, looks cool with only one red strip... so removed my to see what's what.. looks good to me...
now I got 2 extra red strip, I want to put it under the headlights, and connect to the original one to make it longer, like the mk7. what do you think?


Discuss.

Yup, just pop it out from the back when you remove the grill, it actually took me 2 hours to finish the job. I first thought I need to disassemble the whole grill(gloss black and the black plastic) to remove the red strip, but I gave up and use a tiny flathead screwdriver to push and down the red strip clips. and they are off, but you will do a little tiny damage the the strip and the grill.
Nothing noticeable, so no big deal~

I think this looks better than just taking it off. as far as trying to tack it to the headlight.... well it would be unique, that's for sure

Doesn't look bad to me.
To each his own. If you like it, then more power to you.
You're certainly the first one i've seen do this, so its original, as well.

I like it with just the bottom red strip. It looks a bit cleaner to me.
