      Well, I just so happened to have bought two '09 JSW's in the past month. One is a SEL 2.0 TSI 6-speed and the other is a 2.5 auto. The SEL has some front end damage and was thinking of doing a swap to either a Rabbit or an R32. I know with the Rabbit front end I'd have to change the core support, which I have to anyways since its cracked. Just wanted some inspiration!! Thanks!

      Here is my 2.0T TSi SEL. GTi headlights, Votex lip, bumper, fogs and open grills. Oh there is a intercooler hiding behind the bumper too.

      Just an idea if you wanted to create a GTi wagon.
