    Default Insignia VXR Grill

    Been and ordered the VXR grill this morning. Should look nice compared to the original, going to keep the SE chrome surround to keep it line with the rest of the trim.

    So it'll only be the main grill section thats brushed alluminium.

    Got it for a VERY good price as well!

    If it's here by the weekend, it should be on during Saturday.

    Matt

    Are you saying you can utilise the current chrome front badge and surrounding with the Insignia VXR grill? This is what put me off getting one.

    I did not like the matt chrome surrounds on the vxr grill?

    regards

    Should do yes, the new grill comes with a new badge which is of course chrome, but the existing chrome surround should be able to be transfered across.

    So it's only the VXR 'bar' that will be in brushed ally. I'll do a 'how to' once I get it then you will be able to see the difference.

    Can't wait to see it Matt - sounds good. If its something easy that even a complete muppet like me can do then you never know I might take the plunge.... I did want a VXR originally but just couldn't stand the dark headlining as it made the interior look too dark... but if I can make my Elite look like it on the outside, then that might be a plan...

    You could always fit VXR bumpers etc, but I am sure you don't want the £5000 bill for doing it!
