    This morning my matt black vinyl came so i popped out and tried to get the grill off. I undid the 3 torx screws at the top and tried to get it off but it just wouldn't budge. Any idea on how to get it off? Are there any clips that im missing?

    you need to take the bumper off, there are clips all the way round it on the inside.

    Damn I was hoping that wasn't the case, think I might just leave it then. Thanks for your help mate.

    well im looking to do this when i get mine am i right in thinking that there are just some screws on the inside of the wheel arch that need undoing and then you can pull the bumper off? similar to a Golf?

    pretty much so. The under tray, the wheel arch liners (or half remove so you can get access to the bolts in behind) and the bolts on top of the bumper & it slides off.

    no worries, sounds just like the bumper on the R32 with the undertray! will certainly make things easier getting the grill off :)
