    New grille required the bonnet to be changed also.

    You can buy aftermarket daylight running LED's but they look pretty nasty (mount to the grilles around the fog lights.

    To put OE daylight running lights would be a fairly pricey job as you'd need to ensure the loom was modified to cope, then buy the lights and refit, then set up in VAGCOM.

    If your not a seasoned modder with a reasonable budget I'd probably give it a miss.

    As much as I sympathise with losing a friend & in your instance blazin IIRC one of your friends dying wasnt his fault or am I wrong involving the robbery, but no disrespect to anyone but stealing your parents car, doing 130mph, then dying because of this, I mean what do we expect is going to happen in these instances, the kid paid the ultimate price, also what would have happened if he had hit another car or pedestrian & killed someone/them, then what would you be thinking, I certainly wouldnt be thinking oh poor kid cause at end of day it takes a real idiot to do this & dont bust my chops about this cause many a person has said the same/worse than this on the site, its not personal just overall picture of these events that happen cause of plain stupidity, also the kid had already been busted/questioned what the day before about taking a vehicle without permission, then does it again, did he not learn his lesson the 1st time, I mean do I need to go on or is there some event that I missed that changes the whole outlook of this event???

    Its not meant as a dig at Kaz's friend or anyone but you get my point, for me its not tragic, its plain stupidity, no one deserves that to happen but its the old saying, play with fire, you get seriously burnt.................16yrs old aswell, waste man real waste for 5 minutes of fun
