    haha i wish, i replaced the 3 lower grilles. When i got my front end re-sprayed i think the bloke doing the job must have used a sledge hammer to smash them out! he managed to break them all, so i needed a full set. I sold my broken ones, but should probably have kept them as spares as they're rare as fook! and pricey too!

    I like that a lot. It's not OTT. Subtle, clean and classy.

    BKZ187 I zip tied them back in but it just didn't look right as the bloke who wrecked them actually broke the mesh from the outer trim. Lesson learnt. He was a friend of a friend and did a great respray but dunno what happened with the grilles. By the time I found out it was too late to go back. I paid £180ish for the new set from memory so saved myself about £30-40. Sold my broken ones for £70 I think cos the centre had a chrome surround.

    Cheers GreyT I tried to simplify things by losing some chrome. Had mixed comments but I prefer matt black to chrome

    Get the Mesh Grill, keep the chrome rings but black the frame and go with some 19" OEM silver Rs6 rims or if you wanna push the boat out, get the LM's on it!!

    Love this, how much did you notice compared to the standard sport springs?

    Do the mirrors just stick on?

    Cheers

    cool thanks. I really want these, but not 100% sure if they will suit the look of my car. I guess for £30 its a cheap risk.

    if your on about the chrome door mirror covers i have a set there are a few kinds you can get one is the stick on ones so they just stick on over your old ones. two the ones i have you take off your case and put on the new chrome ones much better but do cost a bit more but well worth it i think
