I just got this 2000 Passat GLS a few months ago and thought I would ask for your opinions on what to do I have a few ideas. I put on clear corner lenses, clear tail lights, badgeless grill, short antenna and sub enclosure. If you have any ideas for me feel free to speak ur mind.











it was dark when I took these pics.

Not a fan of the tail lights, look too ricey.... but thats my opinion.

Anyways, you should get some new shocks and springs to lower it about 1.5" then throw on some 18" wheels of your choice.

Also, do you have HID's? b/c that last pic, your headlights look very bright.

No they are just Hyper Whites, im thinking about some halo lenses soon but not pos on that. I am thinking about putting my stock lenses back on for the tail lights but was looking into getting them tinted.

looks great except for the tails. Maybe get them tinted by Johnstintedtails. what are those two spot by your drivers side headlights? just from the flash on the camera or something?

That is from the retarted person who had the car before me, I am guessing they hit something and had someone paint it and the painter used the wrong paint so when the bumper flex's the paint comes right off :banghead: . There is no sense in getting it fixed since I want to get a new bumper or body kit.

The car looks nice and clean. I would say put the OE tails back. My .02. As far as future mods I would drop it with either H&R springs with Bilstien shocks or the Eibach Kit as well as get some nice 18 inch wheels because you live in Florida you can probably run those all year round. Good luck.

not a fan of the tails. also, either fill the spot on the rear deck lid where the emblem goes, or put it back on. it just doesn't look right.
