its easy to do just either screw it on or use silicon or if u go all the way have it put on and smoothed over. then u will have to have the bonnet re-sprayed but it would look good ;)

these look great i think.  They take the squareness away from the front.  its a cheap way of giving the car a more updated front.  good luck with fitting it.

They affect the headlight beam? Golf eyebrows totally mess up the beams

I've fitted one to mine, and smoothed it in, and it looks really good!
