Actually sorry its a B5.5 lol, 2000 - 2005 only had a glance while busy, S spec steels and hubcaps fooled me most B5.5 had alloys.

Same chassis and basic car facelifted.

Second hand wings on ebay, or pre-sprayed pattern parts.

Others here have posted about cheap wings theyve located before have a search. Its a common issue and commonly discussed.
