    New City Golf, time to start modding.

    So it is almost about time to put my 2003 1.8T GTI away for the winter, and my 97 Jetta just wasn't cutting it anymore so I picked up an 08 City Golf. I just can't seem to leave things alone so I want to start with a few small changes. Need to change some bulbs to start out. Anybody know what bulb types are in the headlights, turn signals and side mirrors? The manual doesn't tell you shit, there's like no info anywhere on City Golfs and it gets dark so damn early now and it's kinda hard to start poking around and trying to figure things out. also I was wondering about the side bumper markers. I want to get some smoked ones. Looked all over for City Golf markers but theres nothing. Was wondering if any other model of VW uses the same markers???

    Havn't seen much out there for the City golfs... your best bet is to hope other then the headlights, taillights and bumper changes... everything is mk4

    One thing I'm not getting too about the City Golf is if there is no fog light option available, why is there fake foglight spots on the bumper and an explaination in the CITY GOLF manual how to use the foglights??? WTF???

    Is all the suspension and shit still a MK4 part?

    Like if you were to order coilovers for a 2.0 MK4 Golf, would they work for the new City?

    Ya suspension is suposed to be all the same shit. I asked the dealer about foglights and they were like NO NO NO that would be some custom work and take a lot of money!

    You'll be the first. Usually people buy the City's to drive them, not to mod them. Although, what Soundwave posted is damn awesome. Make your car look like that, and you'll get all the chicks

    Ya No. What soundwave posted, most likely not gonna do that. looks nice, but not worth puttin that kinda money in mods for that car. I'll save the money for the GTI. Oh and by the way. Both the first and last pics are not a City Golf. I'll get some pics up soon of mine.

    ive always wondered this about the city golfs. could you not get front fenders hood bumper and headlights from a normal mk4 golf and they would bolt right on? how about the back the tail lights look the same if you were to change the hatch and bumper could you use all the stock mk4 stuff?

    i also own a 2008 city golf, there is nothing out there for modifying the car as it comes from brazil and not sold anywhere else but Canada >the parts for the Brazil GTI like smoked headlights can not imported as they not legal in Canada and not an option open to VW Canada . But i did score a set of those ultra rare headlights from the Brazil GTI through my wifes contacts in Brazil just have to wait about 2 months until their sales rep comes for a visit ,then look out as i will be the only possible one in Canada with a set as i can not see this car being a favorite car to modify seeing not parts are available.

    ^^ I've still got a love/hate thing with the City's. Besides, they don't make cool white CJ's, and I don't care to paint a front I'm not sure I'd like.

    The mirror's are pretty sick.

    The only good thing about the city golfs are the mirrors... not even the jetta has the same mirrors.
    ClubTuga ...Just a 1.8T Jetta
    RICE IS:
    -A 'fartcan' aftermarket muffler with coffee can-sized chrome tip.
    -Springs cut to lower the car for no other purpose than appearance
    -"HoNdA r00Lz" or "ZoOm zOOm" decal covering half of rear window

    the photo shop image by soundwave is sweet, unfortunately the City's front grill is all molded to the front bumper unlike the MK4's, so no badgeless grill is possible unless you hack it off , fill it in where the lower part of the emblem touches the bumper and then use a Modified City grill with other pieces to make a full straight grill. I know this, because my body shop guy is currently working on this set- up for over a month.

    I have an '07 City Golf. (EDIT I first said '06. I meant '07)
    I had no idea what the 'City' model was, figured it was smaller engine, smaller body... built mostly for city driving. When the dealer told me it was the same car, but with little to no options I knew it was for me. I for one don't like power this n that, so I was sold. When I was looking at a Honda, the guy tried selling me a fully loaded SI, even tho I told him I didn't want any options, since I don't want to pay for something I just don't want. VW Guy told me about the 2 City's he had, I jumped on the Golf!

    I too am looking to do a few things, like the smoked lights/corners. If you ever find a source for City stuff let me know as I'll be searching aswell.

    ^^ For the 2006 City Golf, it has the same body style and parts as a standard MKIV Golf or GTI. Unless they changed something with the wiring (which they probably haven't), any MKIV Golf / GTI headlights, tail lights, corner markers and fender markers are interchangeable.
