I just don't know if I really want to do the red emblems at all...more specifically, I am hesitant because I've seen a few variances between lettering sizes. I saw some that seem to leave a little gap around the edge of the emblem plate on the front grill. I really do not want to be stuck with that. I need to do more research to confirm which red emblem fits the front plate the most precisely.

Now that I have that FAST plate frame with the red logo, it really would mesh nicely to have the red lettering GTI emblems. Once I find the best fit, it will likely happen.

Stage two is not even a question of if, just a question of when.

IMHO dnt do red emblems.. coz i think it matches the VW logo.. if you want red letters then you should get a red VW logo too.. but i think we both agree that would look even worse..
nway.. pics about that FAST frame?

Oh, and how hard is a sub install? I installed one on my previous car about 7 years ago, and I don't want to deal with drilling through the firewall again for the battery tap, hah.
