Since these mods all revolve around the front corner lights, I thought I would group this together with a previous thread...

Note: the side parking lights have been changed... something like the front brake duct has been modified to fit on the side, acting like an air escape vent.

and a moody night shot

We like to upgrade our cars with air duct scoops and clear corner lights, but I've never seen these (on a 964)!
Awesome, link to buy these?

^^^^^^^^
Maybe a new product for CultWerks?

Special RL pricing on the air duct and canard combo?

Is the indicator bulb a dual intensity bulb? Basically, would you lose all front marker lights by deleting that one reflector/marker lens?

Huh? Are you saying yours have bulbs in them?

Mine don't, infact pretty sure UK ones don't. As in behind this.

Yup, my North American car has small bulbs in those reflectors.

I'm guessing we have them on the bumper light since we don't have the markers on the wing, behind/above the front wheels.

Can anyone cofirm this is actually a techart splitter? Techart in their infinite wisdom don't have photos on their website

Edit: Found this one on FVD. Same, but different. Looks a bit more pronounced.

Hi Fella,

The TechArt splitter is a three piece item. It's no longer produced. For a pic have a look at my car.

The one you've posted looks like a CultWerks to me.

Nice finds Jetta ... You can call them "dive planes" ... You search will work better!

Those ruby stone ones are a brilliant design ... The way they match heights etc..

The cab on the other hand .. With the reverse facing 'nostril' ... How odd!

I like that!!! exactly what I was looking for. I want something for the track build. I will be using the FVD splitter which mounts to the under tay. It is as close to the factory turbo S, 3.8RS/RSR splitter as you can get. (might even be the same) Although the factory unit comes attached to the under tray. I have the factory unit on my turbo although they did not come painted as they have done in the first picture.

Here are pictures of my C2 with the techArt 3 piece splitter. I happen to be reverting my C2 back to stock and removed the front bumper. I will be reusing these after they are repainted. There are many knock offs of these you can purchase.

The splitter on my turbo is the factory RS wide body part it is slightly different than the turbo S version as mine has vents cut into the under tray the turbo S does not have.

If you find a source i would be interested.
