KATALOG WELT 2003 - SEITE 03: PORSCHE STYLE FOR THE GOLF IV BY HOFELE


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.
