Re: big bumpers?
A guy at Waterfest this summer had a yellow mkII with golf bumpers
(and a VR6)- I think there are pics of it in the Waterfest section @
www.sciroco.org. It looks good in the pics, but he didn't have the sides
of the bumpers attached to the fenders, giving it a sort of loose,
unfinished look up close. You can see what I mean in the "from the back"
pic. Just nitpicking- I'd sure love to have that car :)
