the headlights look like they might be halogen



Maybe the xenon lights will have the stripe in them

What springs did you go with? I was gonna go with clear markers too, but I instead color matched.

Halogens look hideous on the mk7, especially with the orange

The xenons arent the best either, awkward square lighting + that red stripe. Everyones really still waiting to see if the mk7 will come with factory available LED tail lights though. If this is the case..get your LED tail lights for the mk6 now to stick with the times.

Agreed. Too bad Xenons are not included on any trim level. Hopefully dealers will order the lighting package on some inventory cars.

Seems as the though the Mk7 GTI has a lot of front wheel gap. My Mk6 is stock ride height and has hardly half that.

The striping thru red wont be bad if the color is red itself

I also did this to my rear diffuser, came out awesome. I did the side skirts with that Wipe New stuff from those commercials. Came out even better.
