Body Kits, etc.
To make your car
Today, nothing is
available made specifically for the Fox.
I have been receiving
more and more e-mails asking where body kits and other such parts can be
obtained, hence I've put up this page.
If you want a body
kit, spoiler or other such parts, you will have to get creative (or lucky).
You will have to either adapt something designed for another car or universal
application, or be lucky in finding original made-for-Fox parts.
You can also check eBay, as there are some parts from Brazil available
now and then. Fitment may be an issue, due to different bumpers and
headlight setup on North American models.
Companies such as
Kamei, Wings West and others do sell universal-application parts, which
may or may not fit a Fox.
And as always, be
sure to check local auto recycling yards for Foxes with parts already on
Here is all I know
that was available at one point, in North America:

accessories, directly from VW dealerships:
Side skirts (both 2d/wagon
Rear trunk spoiler (2d

Rear trunk luggage rack

"VW Motorsport" kit
Only 3 of these kits
were ever produced, but were never available to the public. One uninstalled
kit remains in existence.
They used to make separate
kits for 2d/wagon and 4d models. Long discontinued. Rumours
are that they'll make them again if at least 3 complete kits are ordered.
Be warned, though, I've heard they are very heavy and require body work
I am not hoarding any of these parts, I do not have any connections to
getting any of them, and if I do come across any I will spread the word.
Here is what I know
has been done, using various parts:
A3 VW lower bumper spoiler
The lower black plastic
piece from an A3 Golf/Jetta can be used on a Fox. It has to be flipped
upside-down and trimmed for width. Mounting it is done with screws
directly into the bottom edge of the front bumper.
Chevy S-10 front spoiler
(from a mid-1980s model)
This is a black piece
of plastic that can be mounted to the lower edge of the Fox front bumper
with screws, and only needs to be trimmed for length along the sides (by
Nissan Sentra front
I have heard of someone
swapping over a complete Nissan Sentra front clip onto a Fox. I have
no idea what was involved, or how it looks.
A1 VW bumper cover
An aftermarket A1 Cabriolet/Rabbit
front bumper cover has been fitted to a Fox, albeit with no rebar.
Looks good, but offers no collision protection. The same car has
an aftermarket Nissan "phantom" grille installed.
A3 VW front bumper cover
A stock A3 Jetta front
bumper cover has been fitted onto a Fox. I am waiting for pictures
and information regarding how this was done.
Ford Probe front bumper
I saw this one in an
online version of the Auto Trader. Research yielded the fact that
the piece came off an early Ford Probe, but how it was mounted is unknown.
