If you watch this video from 0:13 to 0:28 thats what my car sounds like with no boost, and lower then 2500rpm (if you watch any longer you notice this guy isnt running a BOV at all)

YouTube Video

This is my car. Still no boost, but above 3000rpm. 3000 is when my turbo actually spools up, and my BOV opens




It is most definitely NOT this

Dipping those two stripes would be cool just to see how it would look. I wouldn't do eyelids..Ti headlights would look much better

Both options have been explored before. Dipping the fangs and or treating the entire area around the grille makes the car look more like an MK6 Golf, and other than one upper support bracket and a whole bunch of other grille and fog lamp surrounds the ST front bumper cover can be swapped over for the more aggressive look.

Kind of like doing the euro RS or ST170 conversions on stockish MK1 models, it will look nice, but it won't necessarily have the same punch as the original.

Given a damaged bumper cover would give more motivation for pulling off a swap, otherwise it is kind of pricey.

An original cover can be had for around $350-400 after factoring in the $75 core charge brand new from say Village Ford, if you kept or resold the old one you'd make more than $75 unless the old one was really destroyed. The conversion would run a bit more than that due to needing all the grilles for the front.
