I just drove a new 07 R - Electric Silver with all options except the body kit. The only difference I can see is the Compass in the rearview mirror, the side view mirrors with the signals, missing side markers... <p>There are no other visible differences in body or front/rear end...waiting to see what an 07 w/body kit looks like to see if they corrected the front airdam problem...<p><br>Just an FYI to any interested...

Re: (C130)

Nope...altho some dealers are doing it as an add on...but it's almost 1k higher in price than the stock...go figure.

Front winglets are targets for scrapes on even the slightest of slopes...for those of you who have them you know.<p>The touch up paint does wonders...but I had a second set painted for when the first ones get too scraped to touch up any longer.<p>oh well...the price of beauty. <p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (parkstephen)

I have it, but it's not a problem. I've had lower cars, and have only scraped my wings on the bottom twice - no visible damage. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
