Jetta

Ok, i ask so many questions about my car that usually only last 2-3 posts, i figure ill just make 1 new post and ask all the questions in here.

But heres a new one, round head lamp conversion. Wanting to go to a GTi style front grill/lamps (the quad round style) and was wondering how much is involved in this? is it just a swap or is alotta work involved?

Grille and headlight buckets. Turn a bunch of screws. It'll take you about an hour tops.

That's a purely cosmetic change so only you know what you want. It works to pull the bumpers in but you no longer have energy absorbing bumpers. Personally I don't hit things so.... You get the idea.
