    Default Colour coded v grill - DIY or paint shop???

    Going to get something else ticked off me list.

    Will be getting my v grill colour coded. Just not sure what route to go down. Should i do it myself for around £22 or go to a paint shop and have it done? Haven't got any quotes from anywhere so what would be a good price to pay? I'm quite confident doing it myself as I did the rear chrome strip couple of month back. Hmmm, just can't make up my mind!

    Anyone with black sapphire feel free to show us ya grill.....

    That looks great matey. Did you need to take the bumper off to remove or were you able to remove with it still on?
