Hellos to all, I'm new here and this is my first post. Although I don't own a B5.5 yet, I will be buying my dad's 2002 1.8T in 4 months, pictured below. I'm thinking the first mod I'd like to do is the grill. Which looks the best, in your opinion?

My B5.5 to-be:

You mean the Kamei Sport grill like this one with the thick frame, or one of their Universal mesh sheets?

Damn, that sport grill is like $250 USD unpainted. Why do I have to have such expensive taste?

Actually, yeah I found that $175 website shortly after posting $250. Thanks for lookin out though! My car is Blue Anthracite. Do you think it will look a LOT better if I painted that Kamei sport grill's frame to match, or will it look just fine as black? I can't seem to find any photos of a Blue Anthracite B5.5 with Kamei sports grill.

That car is not Black. And yes paint it to match just like that one.
I was talking about julianfang's ride. If that's not black, I don't know what is.

Do you guys paint the frame of the grill yourselves, or do you have a shop do it? If you do it yourself, do you buy an OEM can of VW spray paint? How much does it cost to have it painted professionally vs. DIY, or do we not dare try to paint it ourselves?

Also, what parts are the valances (spelling)? Are they like the "shopping cart bumpers"? He he, sorry I'm not a car anatomist.

I think the Kamei grill IS your best grill for that year and definately have it professionally painted, it's really the best way to get a quality paint job. :thumbup: By the way... welcome to the club :beer:
