Do an exhaust cut out and move the muffler upward into the bumper and it will look 10000x better. I like your car btw.

Thanks Eminaga! And I have been so tempted to make a cut out. Im just very cautious about cutting into things that can't be fixed easy.

Well if you do it right you wont have to fix anything and it will look a lot better. I was afraid to cut out my bumper for the St exhaust as well but now I love it and am glad I did it the "right way" by making a cutout. It just looks dumb without a cutout imo.

Probably won't do a body kit myself. I do like the down force lip that twenty and a few other guys have.

Yea Duane has IMO the nicest looking mk3 on that I've seen. But that's just cause sterling grey is one of my favorite colors. The reason why I would never do a full body kit is because I would want to buy new wheels also and that would mean going to 18s for me. Also new tires. Don't wanna shell out that money for looks. Just my opinion though.
