    Thanks Piers - the 1 on ebay looks gloss black which i think would be the same as the genuine optics grille? is your mates gloss or matt?
    Are these a perfect fit or do they look aftermarket (gaps, etc)?

    I just googled it, seems in the VW, Seat and Skoda circles they refer to the Interior Light Pack as W8 lighting....:think:

    I bought an FK Grill from FK Automotive DIRECT from Germany.
    There are loads of options, best to look at the website.

    The one I chose comes in GLOSS as standard but a trip to my local body shop and £30 later will see it it Matt Black glory!

    The quality of the FK Grill is superb, very rigid and robust.

    Just a bit of a pig to swap Grills and the bumper needs to come off really (If any one knows an easier way please PM me ;-) )
    The Cupra splitter is a must too, most Seat parts departments stock it!

    Watch this space for new pics!!

    Having owned a W8 with factory W8 lighting, all the issues with the car make the funky lighting not worth the hassle ;)
