You can't just buy them off the shelf, people are having them made by bodyshop's.
It involves taking a caddy bumper and a golf bumper, cutting and grafting them together.
There will be someone on hear that can point you to a good body shop near you or someone's number that can help.

Hi,
I'm going to build my gti bumper, but somebody please tell me this :
If I cut the Caddy bumper lower half down, I cut down the two holders (photo), which are actually hold and position the bumper.
What will hold the hybrid bumper on its place? The two screws of the grill??

I haven't done this yet but from all the pics I see you cut below the tow eye cover on both bumpers to the hot staple/plastic weld and prep. If I am wrong guys please correct me. The ones that have been done looks great

So, I started, but I'm already stuck.
If I match the bottoms, the tow eyes won't match. If I match the tow eyes, the bumper will be lower 2 inches.
