Whats your thoughts on fake series 1 golfs?.
For those who dont understand. Mk1 golf rear panel with large clusters cut off just to fit the small cluster rear panel from an earlier mk1 golf.

I've always thought, why make something its not. I know series 1's are hard to come by but surely if thats the look you want, you'd search and pay the going rate for 1 right? Fake series 1 golfs! Icon_scratch

Does welding in the seies 1 panel get you in some exclusive club or is it just to please the crowd at shows.

There's also that wheel-whore saying, 'fake splits can f**k off', so does this fall in the same pot?

I'am sure this will get a mixed view so i've added a poll as i know you love them lol

to be honest i'm not fussed, i am a mk1 person and if someone wants to take a swallow tail and put it on a late mk1 thats up to them.

i like all three rears, and if mixing n matching keeps the cars on the road then great.

but as for saying about making somthing it ain't are you saying you only like 100% standard/original cars, cos i don't see many of those on this forum.

at the end of the day we only do thing to our cars that we like, andif you like an early rear end and have the facilities, parts and know how to do it. why not. they certainlly don't get any extra brownie points in my book, but at the same time i won't snub them!

Totally agree but i'd walk away if i was looking to buy simply as i'd want the real McCoy if looking for an S1.

I do think the small light back ends look so much better, but there is so much more to a series 1... like that dashboard Fake series 1 golfs! Herz Fake series 1 golfs! Herz

not a dig mate, just don't nderstand who people who modify their cars to thier own taste would then moan at someone else for doing the same. it's not like they are making the cars look bad or anything.

(and i'm not saying you are moaning, but for some people to dislike this is just a bit daft)

Perhaps i am being daft, i never expected everyone to agree with me mate. I have my opinions as everyone else does hence i thought i'd see what others thought. Anything wrong in that?

I appreciate the work involved in such a mod just as i do with all the air cooled cars even though i not overly keen on them(although i may own a bay at some stage)

Just think its a bit OTT for small lights lol Fake series 1 golfs! 460227
