After seeing a few JTI's around, Ive decided I want to do the conversion too. Im looking for the pieces X'ed in the pic to trade straight up for a chrome jetta grill.

(not my car, but sick as hell)

Looking for chrome or black, doesnt really matter.
Want these parts:


So Cal preferred, as you will ship first if youre not local.

good luck with that... don't know how that would fly here. I've heard of a previous guy who did that and he got shunned. I think it looks okay, and to each his own.

I'd love for someone to talk **** to me about my car. Being a professional fighter has its benefits(Also how I paid for the car). They don't have to drive it, I do.

I used to hunt humans for a living... what's your point? Let's please drop the e-thug crap please.

FWIW: One of the reasons I avoided the R32 was all that chrome and no fogs, did not make the vehicle look like a top of the line model.

If you want to change the grill out, there are a lot of aftermarket alternatives.

So are you trying to put a GTI grill on a Jetta?

There is no 'e-thugging' here, so please cut out the 'arrogant condensending asshole' crap please.

I personally like the GT grill, and the jetta grill is exactly the same. there are options with OEM parts too like having the open GT-esque fogs as well.

To each his own..

:'( OK, so what does being a professional fighter have to do with anything?

BTW: It's condescending not condensending.

I was merely standing up for myself and car..

So Dragon, you going to sell me a jetta front end? This originally started out as a BST thread, not a pissing contest :]

both of you guys need to play nice.


I was just warning you, no need get defensive.

I said I liked it, and warned you so you wouldn't get defensive, but I guess it backfired. My apologies.

Well, back to your grill, I don't have one to sell... have you checked with any of your local salvage companies? You may wanna try asking on a Jetta forum if you are trying to trade: www.jettajunkie.com :)
