    Default Painting VXR Diffuser

    Hi,

    I have just ordered a rear VXR Diffuser and Black Sapphire paint with a view to painting it myself......it supposedly comes already primed but do i need to spray it with plastic primer myself or will i be 'good to go' with paint straight away....????

    Cheers

    Carl

    The VXR diffuser is about £35-£50 (depending on dealer) direct from the dealer. I paid £36 for mine.
