Golf R bumper conversion

I have a 2011 GTI and want the ass end of a Golf R. I don't care what anyone says I like the tails, diffuser, and bumper a whole lot better than the GTI look. And seriously who doesn't like that custom dual center exhaust? Either way I'm hoping to get this conversion kit from ecs:

https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...ion/5k0898110/

And was wondering if anyone here has gotten one before and if so how much of a pain is it to install? Is it something like a novice like me could install or should I bring it to a professional? I understand I will need my exhaust altered. THANKS

It won't be bad. No Fab work required to my knowledge; should just be a swap minus the catback. The bumpers held on by clips screws and a few brackets that probably need to be swapped i would imagine it's all in the kit

Remus sells a kit that comes with the exhaust and the valence. It uses the oem bumper.

It's fairly easy to install.

Why not just by the golf r diffuser that maxton design sells that fits the gti bumper. Even Rdx race designs makes one that fits the gti bumper also.

Only difference is Maxtons is Abs plastic and Rdx's is fiberglass

Turbo back from a golf r won't fit a gti it routes differently under the car compared to a gti turboback plus the downpipes are different.

Milltek makes a center exhaust for the gti that will work with the golf r rear bumper.
