Car: 1991 VW Golf Mk2 1.8 Driver

Colour: Black

The twin headlight grill of the VW Golf GTI is instantly recognisable. The VW Golf Drivers also came with a twin headlight grill, but these had 1 very important missing feature! ... the RED STRIPE!!!

For very little cash or effort you can soon add the look of a twin headlight grill Golf GTI to a Golf Driver!

Another pic of the original grill on the car, this time though, the 'VW' badge has been removed for painting black. Whereas, the 'driver' badge has been removed permanently!

Having taken the front grill off the car made it much easier to paint the red stripe.
The painted badge has now been refitted into the front grill.

This Golf now looks much more like a GTi than before, taking very little effort to achieve this sportier look!
