    Default Facelift grill, black or silver? Opinions

    Hi Guys (and girls). The big chrome grill is driving me nuts, and, as I don't have £200 spare for the Irmscher one, after a chat with Messy at his HQ, did a quick photoshop star silver and black. Appreciate your thoughts.

    If you can't afford an Irmscher grille, then definitely go with colour coding the whole V as it blends in nicely with the rest of the car. Would you leave the chrome strip that runs around the bottom of the mesh (under the V) or would you colour code that too?

    Personally I would go with colour coding to the car, black looks odd.
    As for the lower chrome strip, there is a pic on here that someone has done there grill.
    Not sure if they did the chrome strip though, but it needed to be redone on the grill as they didn't key the base coat in properly.

    I like the chrome look, but then I'm an old git, so like plenty of chrome on a car the more the better.

    Thanks for the feedback so far - hadn't noticed the lower chrome, I was a classic car fan for decades, used to lots of chrome, but it just doesn't look right on the Vec.
    I'll have another go at Photoshop, with/without the bottom chrome and the V still chromed.
    Personally, I prefer the black, but I never did have any sense of colour or style lol.

    Defo the whole V-grill (apart from the griffin) or nothing. Looks a bit naff half and half in my opinion...

    Definately paint the full grille, the V remaining chrome doesnt look right imo.
    How about doing it in a matt silver finish similar to that on the newer shape tigra:
