Another trend that seems to proceed is decorating cars with chrome parts. Chromium
grill slats and inserts, frames for side blinkers, rear and front lamps as well
as covers for mirrors, door handles and washer nozzles will be certainly hip in
2003, as the numerous pages with such articles point out. Furthermore, the
catalogue of D&W has listed a part that is strongly supposed to become a trend
setter: a front bumper modelled on the analogical part of the Porsche 911 Turbo
for Golf IV and Bora [ Jetta in US]. It's safe to say that many enthusiasts will
pay the not reasonably 959.95 Euro for it and, in that case, it certainly will
be available for other cars soon.
But not only Porsche's design sets an example. Another bumper shape is inspired
by the Smoothies whose cleaned bodies are currently very popular. Newcomer Speed
Tech has launched a few front and rear bumpers for the latest VW models, that
looks like smoothed original parts. In contrast, the Veedub specialist Zender
goes in another direction. Its creation of a bumper kit for the Golf Mk 3 is
extremely angularly shaped. It looks as if it's an outsider but possibly we
mistake a new trend, err is human.
