Some cosmetic updates!

Decided to spruce up a few things on the exterior. These really small and simple mods go a great distance in popping up the look.

This TCR inspired red skin for the front GTI emblem:


Blacked out the fender badge:


And the rear emblem:


Huge shout-out to badgeskins for providing these cutouts

Black rear-emblem with color-match inlay from KliiMotorwerkes:


That's how the rear-end looks now:


Looks pretty good as of now. Something's new coming up soon though. That will really complete the look IMO

Thank you Adam! Yes, it's great fun to tinker with the small stuff as well Initially with this car, I always went with functional mods. But, I am happy with where it stands mechanically today.

Just saw your profile. Interesting to see someone moving from a Mk7 to Mk6 Also, feels good that folks are still keeping their "build threads" alive in this Instagram age. Kudos! Sub'd to yours!

Very clean looking car, You definitely have a keen attention to detail. Also I have never seen someone put those side flares from mk7's on the back hatch before on a mk6, I like it!

kudos
