Search sucks on Tapatalk and Google image (attached) just takes me to the most recent post in the thread.

Anyone know if a golf r style lower grill can be sourced for GTIs?

TIA

Considering they're not the same shape, I'd say no.

Right im aware that they're different shapes but I was hoping for a golf r "style" grill like the attached image.

You mean the grill where the emblem sits? Or the one below where the radiator/intercooler is? I'm assuming the lower, in which case again, there is no option.

Yup the lower grill that protects the intercooler/radiator.

I wonder how the owner of the GTI in the pic got it done.. [emoji848]

From what I read on another forum, that grill was a custom thing done by using 2 Golf R grills and a GTI grill. Not sure why 2 were used, maybe the messed up one? So maybe you do in fact just need 1.

Sounded like they cut the slats out of the R grill out, cut out the honeycomb from the GTI grill and then molded R slats to the GTI frame then painted it black.

So not something you could just buy unfortunately.
