Sorry guys not a very attractive picture, and bit of a noob here 😂 I'm thinking about buying this MK7 in red. As you can hopefully see the lacquer in this area has peeled away quite a lot. To be honest it doesn't bother me that much, but do you think it'll get much worse and about how much would it be to fix?

What if I just leave it like it is? Will it cause problems?
We will never let you forget it's there until you FIX IT! It will possibly spread from the looks of it - or show up in other areas of the bumper if it indeed was repainted poorly at some point. The only problem is it looks "bad" if you are concerned about that. Otherwise you could consider it a beauty mark.

You may be able to cover it with a Bumperdillo.

Just pick up one for the appropriate year. https://parts.vw.com/p/Volkswagen__/Bumperdillo-Protection-Plate/73184652/17A061195BA7W.html

Been reading the forums for a while but only just registered.

New Enkei Phantom wheels (18x8 et45) to replace my old BBS SR. Maxton spoiler in the back and Lamin-X film on fogs.

The mirror covers are "black chrome" covers from ebay. They're actual covers with tabs just like OEM, not stick-on. Just wanted something darker than VW silver caps but still have that metallic look.

When the light is so nice that your car miraculously looks clean. This is my “fake stock” suspension setup on coil overs and all the good stuff. +15mm on the wheels.
