You can, but they'll be the wrong height. The mounts are in a different position - you may need to make some adaptors too, as I think the distance between the front mounts is different too.

In my opinion, yes. But it's your car dude. Do what you want to it and enjoy it.
Blades will be the same as u.s spec.

Well, I'd prefer to fit T bars, but I'd actually keep the big bumpers on. - Search out some pics online and see what you think...

Well what does yours have at the moment?

In my opinion (Volkszone disclaimer ;) ) t bars on late bugs look cack cos there's too much of a void from the short bonnet and decklid. Badly positioned baldes/us spec bumpers also look cack.

A bug can look fookin' beatuful with good ol Europas.

Below is the evidence to my opinions:

Good point well made, Tom. However, I think those last two need raising. Specially the black one. ;)

I just realised that from the text of my post before, it sounds like I'm slating my own car! :lol:

The actual story behind that is my mate Sam (Firedancer's brother) has an obsession with otters. The "4 finger wave" is in fact a reference to The Really Wild Show's Terry Nutkins who sadly lost a finger to an otter. :lol:
