Basic answer, no.

It will all fade out eventually on the normal car scene.

Yeah thats what i hVw.

Cut a tow eye so your left with just the bolt bit, file the hole open enough for it to fit on the tow eye bolt through the strap hole. Screw the bolt in and there you have it.

I already have the answer near the top too lol..

You know on yours you can unscrew the toe eye hook? Well on the mk3 they are welded onto the gearbox cradle and rear chassis.

If you wanted to go to some extreme to fit on to a mk3 you could, but its pointless.

I wouldnt mind them for a slag type feature, but like Danny says, MK3 is pointless unless you wanna butcher stuff.
