Hi,

Just joined as hopefully picking this car up. Only question is the hideous bottom skirt that has been fitted. Does anyone recognise which one it is? i do not fancy paying for a car which has had holes drilled into the bumper.

Cheers

I don't know what it is, but it doesn't look like a bolt on addition that would have required drilling. It looks like a replacement that would use the same clips as the oem piece. Hard to tell from this angle though and without knowing exactly what it is.

IMHO it looks good 😎. It looks better though on a car with the TCR side skirts as this picture of a GTI TCR demonstrates, because the bottom outer corners of the diffuser follow the lines of the TCR side skirts.

Styling-wise, IMHO the TCR is the Golf GTI at its best. I even like the factory option hex pattern decals on the rear quarter panel and doors when they’re on a Pure Grey car (I love Pure Grey).

@Rs77 - the GTI in the picture in your original post also has a non-standard non-OEM spoiler fitted along the top edge of the tailgate. The GTI badge lettering on the tailgate is black (if the car’s a GTI Performance model, the badge lettering would be red) so a previous owner has probably fitted black vinyl overlays to the original red lettering.

Thanks all for the replys. I personally would prefer the standard diffuser so will have to keep a look out for second hand OEM or talk to the dealer.

@SRGTD from the other pictures i believe it has a maxton extension fitted to the standard spoiler but i may be wrong, unfortunately the ad mentions nothing about being the performance model. Thinking i might steer clear of this car and wait for another to pop up.

yeah i think if you don't want something with mods attached to it already, i'd pass on it. Some of us like the TCR because it's a part that the US never got (because we never got the TCR model).
