    That would make sense but Vince said emissions which would also make sense as there was a change in emissions law towards the the last couple of years of the Rado manufacturing life span.

    I have a single open slat on mine and it has aircon !! I would have expected all slats should be open for maximum cooling effect..

    You can get a 3 opening slat or known as a 5 grill from VW Heritage for about £50 , its an option.

    Put latebay in voucher code and I think you get 10 % off.

    Thanks for the link. Unsure what is on mine but since it is held on by gaffa tape I should buy a replacement.

    Very happy with the new grill, It's an original VW part which I was happy to see. The car should cool a bit better with the new grill and the three openings, with the new decals and fog lights it has refreshed the nose quite nicely.

    Nice, not usually a fan of black badges but looks good on yours, likely because of the red VR6 badge. I like the wheels too.

    I want mine back now.

    Thanks I have got a new OE silver one with a black circumference but my tailgate decal is black so thought I would match it up. I wonder how many of these grills they have left because if you get the old cable/trumpet snapping on the bonnet release you might have to crack open the grill , sort of part that would be good to have a spare or two.

    Bet you can't wait mate with that honed engine head, very nice !!

    Alloys BBS RS771 IMO they are the bargain split rims in the BBS world, grab a set for a good price while you can .

    This looks good. Direct fit no spacers or anything.
