    Hi all, ive recently bought a mkiv and have set aboyt sprucing her up a bit, its a 150bhp 1.8t, silver with black leather recaros :D

    Anyway she is currently as pictured, i recently acquired the CH's from vag drivers forum member and lowered suspension (to be fitted saturday)

    I am also getting the stock exhaust modded with two stainless steel tips to point outwards (dont want a loud after market exhaust)

    Other plans include brake upgrade and finally remap to circa 200bhp

    My main point on concern is what to do with the exterior, car is fitted with ms design front and rear valance and skirts. And i had colour coded fogs which ive replaced with std black grill. the front valance has grown on me since i changed the fogs, and i like the skirts, but the valance does not match the rest of the kit and to me looks a bit much? i have a colour coded v6 rear apron which i may fit, but would that look wierd with the kit thats on it, ideally id like the valance that matches the kit but i cant find it.

    Anyone any suggestions and any opinions (good or bad) on how the car looks are welcome

    looks nice and subtle as it is atm, cant see much that needs doing to it now. Anything else might be a bit OTT imo.

    Looks nice that.

    Would probably leave it as it is.

    I think it looks awesome mate, easily one of the nicest MkIV Golfs I've seen.

    I don't think I'd actually change anything on it, other than the driver... ;)

    Stop, step away from the exterior. Its fine, infact its lovely, don't spoil it.

    If you must, mod the inside a bit then, but tastefully. :)

    What year is it? Seems strange for the I in GTI to not be in red.

    Ah, maybe it's different for petrols then. My 150bhp 2002 diesel (now at about 195bhp) has a red I.

    Anyway, nice looking car. Please don't go OTT on the exterior :)

    Nope, the GT TDI PD 150 doesn't have TDI anywhere on it, just GTI. The 130bhp diesels have TDI (no red I).

    Does it not have a centre rear headrest? I thought all the 150bhp MK IV's had?
