I prefer the led tails on a mkv over the mk6 hockey sticks

Absolutely not. I think the round mkv lights look better than the hockey sticks. The rest of the mk6 is good, just dont care for the led tails

fair enough my thought is that the lights on the mkv look perfect on a mkv and the lights on an mkvi look perfect on an mkvi, but the people that but the mkvi looking led lights on the mkv, it just looks awful

Wow, you might be the first! Have you ever seen them in person!? LEDs look perfect on the MK6 body style. Now that I look back, the MKV LED tails just don't quite look right to me. TO each his own I guess!!

Congrats OP for your new tails - they look great - must needed mod for the US GTI!
