Apparently there are a lot of little things about the 2006 that wont go near older models! Poop on VW for making minute changes that keep us older NBs wanting the newer model!!!

Hmmm, I thought it looked the same to me, will have to take a closer look. I picked up some heavy chrome 3-D ones (not the OEM 3-D's) from Japan, they really POP...

They're heavy chrome, very shiny and you could take a hammer to them and not dent them. The OEM ones are chromed, but not as shiny and they can dent. Go to www.bugsgogo.com (it take a few minutes for the nav bar on the left to load), click on VW Genuine Exterior Parts and then scroll down 'til u see the item (about $100/set).

Here's a pic of the "3-D" badge next to the "Chrome" badge:

MUCH shinier! :p

I got a bunch of unique stuff at once and shipping was about $40.

I bet the '06 is also shinier, if a tad smaller, VW has been moving in that direction...

I've got a friend going to Japan in a few weeks... going to get her to bring back some steering wheel spoke covers.... maybe I'll get her to get a dozen and I'll resell them :)
