    So I am really wanting to either respray my front bumper or facelift if or some of it..

    It's covered in stone chips, only sprating is going to fix.

    One mod I really want to do though is my grille, can I please have your opinions?

    PS, if anyone wants any quick photoshop mods like this one, pm me

    Thank you :)

    Both ways looks fine, in Black looks more agresive but with Chrome looks "Classy". :happy:

    Black all the way.

    I have an 06 plate also and put on the FK tuning black grill. Looks so much better.

    I have a FK black grille for sale. Brand new but does have a few scratches on it, perfect if you want to spray or vinyl wrap.

    Voted black here.

    Does the chrome surround clip/screw off, or is it part of the grill assembly?

    Fantastic, thanks.

    Will have a go at removing mine and painting it later in the week, looks like mine is slightly different though has the chrome is in 2 pieces (top and bottom).


    Looks fantastic :thumbsup:

    Wow thanks for the replies! Only just got back online.

    I think I am going to go for black... looks looks non-standard!

    I will have a look at removing it in a min, I will PM Dannykn9 now for his black one.

    What is the difference between the FK & normal?

    Thanks!
