    they are pricy but the quality of them is way better than the 30 quid option. i've had both and would def go irmy everytime.

    Things cost 'X' amount. If you want one, you pay for it. If you don't want to pay, you don't get...



    ...and if all they are is a plastic grill with a bit of aluminium on the top, make your own one...

    the facelift grilles are rediculous. I would love one but wouldn't pay that much for a bit of plastic. When I had a mk4 astra, I bought a plain slatted grille of ebay for a tenner and it looked as good as an Irmy one imo.

    As said, the Irmscher grill is excellent quality and always a perfect fit.

    They look nice for sure, but are they worth it? IMHO not really. However, Irmscher, like any other company will pitch their products at a given price. If people buy them willingly, they will keep the prices. If they don't sell, they find out why and adjust accordingly. If the feedback is that they are too expensive, then there would be some adjustments somewhere along the line to bring the cost down. Ultimately, quality may suffer.

    There can be some cracking 2nd hand deals on them though Still looking out for one if it comes up at a reasonable price.
