    grill opinion

    Hopefully a better picture of both grills, dose anyone know the ideal size for pics on this site, i am using photobucket and the standard seems to be either too large or too small.

    Either 640 x 480, or preferably 800 x 600.

    Your pics are a bit small! I wasn't sure about my grille when I first did it, but I love it now!

    I think it would look better if the lower section had matching mesh. I'd like to change my grill (maybe go Otty) but if it doesn't match/complement the lower then I couldn't bring myself to do it.

    I agree i think i might my some black mesh and make a new inner for the bottom grill, need to find some with a similar hole size

    I agree, or even try and blackout your standard grill with the black lower grill..

    I liked it before, black grills can look good, maybe if you blacked the original grill it would look better, I don't like the mesh.

    What colour is the car though? that looks lovely!

    Sorry i think the original looks better not a big fan of the mesh! Also again not a big fan of letting that chrome go, espicially if your leaving the rest of the chrome effect around the car?

    i like the mesh, it would look better if the lower was mesh too.
    if it was me id be colour coding the glossy black on the top grill atlas grey to match the car, i think it would look much more suttle

    I'm not sold on this look if i'm honest. I think it would look cool on a black car, but just not sure that it looks like a gaping hole on yours. Just my 2p worth.

    Sorry!!

    I like it but i did that as well ,
    only difference being is i have a standard bumper so all the bottom grills match and the top is mesh ,
    i did the top grill as i hate the way it sticks out to for from the side profile where as the mesh grill is sunk into the front more and looks loads better
    just my opinion thou ,
    also im all for the black out look every one has chrome its just normal and i like the car to look a little different and meaner looking.

    looks great, but bottom middle grill is all out because its not meshed like the rest, if you get my drift ?

    Paul - the Cupra splitter - Was it straight on or did you have to modify? Any chance of a straight on picture from the front please so I can see what the fitment is like?

    Have to say - it looks pretty damn fine. Nice work.

    Hi
    you have a little modifiy but its all straight forward and obvious when you offer it up,
    the legs in the centre need trimming and when you start fixing start from the middle as you need to work it around the corners
    its easy enough to do and for a 20 mod you cant really fault it .

    Paul - thanks for the additional pics. Much appreciated. Looks spot.

    I saw one last night at my local Indy as he was fitting it to a Cupra and i didnt have time to offer up properly to mine, but now seeing yours, its on the list!
