    I'm not really a fan of the plastic here, is it possible to change it for something else? I'm assuming nothing can really be done but I thought I'd ask. Cheers

    I assume you mean the honeycomb grill thing lol

    Why don't you get green filler and fill the gaps level with the black so it's green and black...

    You could always remove it and the fogs and swap for the Cupra grills with the openings for the brake cooling.

    Dunno if it'd lead to anything... but could always message this guy. I know he does lot's of mods for the MK2. Not sure what the criteria is for him doing something (I guess an amount of interest). But... don't ask, don't get.

    I'm thinking of trying this, it'll definitely be different for sure. Can't find a way to get a lima green paint though, any ideas?
