Thread: Hey, Ryster here :)

  1. #1

    Hey, Ryster here :)

    Hello all

    Just registered today and thought I'd introduce myself and say hi

    My name is Ryan and I'm from Uttoxeter. I currently drive a VW Golf GT TDI Mk5 54-plate in blue. I'm currently looking to do a bit of work to it, including replacing the stereo with a new satnav/usb/aux input one (like the Pioneer AVIC-F9110BT), have some paint chips fixed, the front grille replaced (it's a body coloured one at the moment, and broken) with the black one on later GT TDI models, and the alloys repaired or replaced as they are quite scuffed and scratched

    Any advice/suggestions on the above would be gratefully received

    Thanks and regards,
    Ryan Spooner

    p.s. On the attached picture my car is on the left. As you can see, the early GT TDI models just had a plain body coloured front grille. This is cracked on mine so I'd like to get it replaced. What I want to know is if I can replace it with the newer black grille from later GT TDI models? Looking at the picture, I'm thinking it may involve replacing the bumper too so may not be feasible. What do you guys think?

    hi dude, you do need to replace the whole bumper and grille. front panel behind is the same so straight swap.

    You will need a new front panel as there are some differences... but if you fancy cutting pieces out from the bumper then it is a straight swap...

    its the only reason I haven't done mine...
