    thank you for the nice comments, always good to hear its to other peoples tastes aswell, yes Aron they're just standard xenon facelifts, can probably find some on ebay

    my grill surround keeps being chipped by stones, anyone have a more durable method of colour coding the grill?

    Wrap it dude. I did mine with some carbon stuff as I was gfed up of stone chips...so far so good. It wont chip like paint does, its cheap, you can change it whenever you want and you can get pretty much whatever colour you want :)

    Dela - looks pretty funky with the white wheels! Good luck with the sale dude.

    Jay - it's easy to spray. Just quickly sand it down roughly with fine paper (forgotten what grit we used, i'll let you know), do a coat of primer, 2 coats of gloss black, then we got carried away with laquer and done 3 coats of that but it came out really good though!
