Hey you have a wicked looking dub, mostly because you "red" my mind by painting the front bumper spines red!!

I've been humming about it since i got the car, 1 month ago. So far I have taken the rear valence off and painted it red and want to do the same with the spines (plus a little extra ;-) )
How did you got about it?
Plastidip, paint, remove it from the bumer, tape it off?

any tips would be great! :-)

Sorry for the late reply and thanks for the compliment! I actually did not use paint at all, they are pieces of 3M vinyl trim that i purchased off of amazon (search red car trim). Its super easy to apply and its great because its not the least bit permanent

The red looks great and the green would probably look awesome too, try it out!

Well everything has been fine for the 9 months of ownership, but yesterday the car took a while to turn over + CEL. Scanned it and it say fuel pressure error, took it to VW today and now I have a loaner... awesome
