Re: big bumpers?

These cars are in my Reiger catalog, too.  I stared at them for hours to 
figure out just what the hell they were. The red one looks like a normal 
jetta/golf big bumper whacked on the front of the rocco. Check out the 
big gap below the headlights, tho..I don't like it. You'd have to make a 
trim strip in my opinion... The blue one is a little craftier... it 
looks like they took a golf/jetta big bunper and hacked off the black 
'top' part of it and used it with a scirocco euro bumper as an air dam. 
The thing that I dont like about that one is, check out the body line 
right in front of the wheel...the spoiler is not even with it. I guess 
you could cut the spoiler to make it straight, tho.  Given the choice, I 
like the blue style better. 
Damn, they sure do make some ground scrapin cars over there, don't 
You want a good laugh? Grab a reiger catalog and check out the offsets 
these guys run on their WC VWs...how about a 10ET? how about 5ET/
