    what grilles is there for the mk4?

    I have owned a irmscher, kamei, mattig slatted and mattig single bar grill, I want to change it again as Im not feeling the single bar with the new front end.

    So whats out there.

    I have gsi mesh for the rear bumper (yet to collect from steve) not sure it would tie in on the front end.

    Is the mk4 quite limited in styles of grill or what?

    not really but for your look car you only have a couple of bolt on options:

    recessed
    irmy
    single bar
    3 bar

    anything else will look terrible on the car IMHO. Oh and for the record yours looks perfect as it is
