    I am looking to to either carbon wrap or spray ( black ) my rear diffuser, side mirrors, and the front lip from the cupra. Which do you think would look best ?

    ( How do i take my rear diffuser off ? is it possible to swap the rear diffuser for the diffuser on the s-line kit ? )

    Thanks

    Black paint.

    Carbon wrapped mirrors look tacky, they're the sort of thing you'd see on a 14 year old Corsa.

    The lower section of the bumper is all one piece. Take the bumper off and you'll see a row of clips across the joint, pop the clips and it comes apart, there might be a screw at each end, but that's it. Then it's just a matter of masking the body-coloured section while you (or your chosen painter) spray the rest.

    I'm not sure if the S-line one fits, it probably does, but I don't know for certain, I just know that the S3 one doesn't fit anything but S3 bumpers.

    Hi yeah the s-line lower valance will fit. As Mitch said black would look nice or get some one to photoshop the colours on your car. Then decide which one your happy with. Good luck
