Hi all!

Of those of you that have body kits from either Maxton or Ingo Noak, what are your opinions? Which is best (I’m sure a lot of this is subjective) and which parts have you gone for?

Do we have some photos we can share as I can’t make my mind up on what I want as the images on either website aren’t amazing!

Thank you!

Hi,
I went for maxton designs. Bumper off , line up and nut and bolt them into place. Think there was about 14 to be precise. Lines up really well.

Sorry the photos haven’t gone in the correct order!

Looks good! Is taking the bumper off a necessity or was that because it made it easier? Would laying on the floor/using jacks work?

I mean doing it on Jacks would be possible with 2 people. But I don’t think the result would be as good or precise, probably more a pain in the ass if I’m honest. Taking the bumper off was about 10 screws and 6 pop rivets in the undertray. Not a massive job and everything can be lined up perfectly.

You like them more without the stripes....
These aren't the droids we're looking for....

No problem. Bought them in white originally but the slight difference in white was bugging me. So decided on black in the end

Loving it with the black wheels, also like it without the stripe :/ Did you remap it, I went Apr and it's a little rocket. Yes faster out there but not much use when commuting 80 miles to work given fuel prices.

Thanks! I’ve not seen one without stripes yet , I just fancied a change as at work there is 3 up GTI’s on the car park (one of them white also) and it just reminded me of corsa limited edition cars. I have had my work done at JBS and I am booking in soon for stage 3. Currently only stage one 148Bhp!

Yeah mate that will be lethal, here in NI I hardly see another up, I removed all GTi badges before remap as I always thought it never lived up to it. What sorta brake is stage 3, will be lethal lol? Thanks bud.
