Or remove the side grilles and use the sweet side intercoolers for VW's That'd be really cool, albeit too much work to make sense

Flamez, you're talking about the '09 JCW Hardtop kit right? Cuz the kit in the first post with the colour coded arches is not a clubby, nor is your post... Unless they took the club door and dual rear door out...

And if that is what you're referring to, disregard this post.

I really cant stand the factory painted arches thing... Just doesnt look good on JCW aeros. Glad the JCW aero is out for the Clubbies out there though

The day I read that aero was being updated I built a JCW online (just to see if there was any difference), and I noticed *something* in the front grille... couldnt tell what it was until now lol

Yep. That picture shows the new front bumper without the painted black trim much better than previous pics....and yes, I can tell it's not a Clubman and assumed I didn't need to explain further.

I wasn't hot on the idea of brake ducts when i heard about it, but that looks amazing and will really help out those looking for cooling
