Will a 2003 GTI front and rear bumper fit my 2003 TDI? Does the hood/grill match up What's needed to make it work?

As always, thanks for your wisdom and input!

Since it's a golf, it's a direct bolt on.

You can even put it on a jetta or put a jetta or gli front on your golf but you have to swap the hood and I think the fenders might. These conversions are called Gettas or Jolfs.

So a Golf (GTI) bumpers will bolt right onto a Golf (TDI) without any mods, but a Golf (any) will require some mods to fit the same from a Jetta. Is my statement correct?

I've heard of gettas too and this is how I get it. Any GTI part should go onto a golf TDI without a problem. Except the brakes, axles, some suspension parts from some years? The bumpers are direct bolt on.

Any golf body can have a jetta front but you can't just swap bumpers, you also have to change the fenders and hood and headlights. Same wiht jetta body putting on golf parts in the getta.

After looking at ETKA, I see that I can get a new front bumper spoiler. The reason why I was looking into the GTI front/rear bumpers was that I have a broken spoiler right at the front of the driver side wheel arch. It looks horrible and I'm glad that I don't need to spend an arm and a leg for it through IMPEX. For under $100 delivered, this will be my best option. It's just the black piece at the very bottom of the bumper...

I really like that R32 front end, wow does that look sharp!

With any luck, I'll have some time to install the new front spoiler that arrived earlier this week.

Thanks,
