    Aha, thanks Graeme!

    Definitely prefer those side skirts and rear skirt to Irmscher (from what I can see in the photos). Not 100% sure on the scoop front lip.

    Would have to see in the flesh. Know where I can see one kitted up?

    The Steinmetz front skirt is very low as well, I clip it regularly, put the wife to the airport yesterday and had an argument with a speed bump, multistoreys are now out of the question, as you can imagine the wife isn`t impressed *lol* I think the signum looks great kitted up though, and there are a few Irmscher one out there already.

    That's been the one thing that has deterred me from putting on any sort of after market front skirt. Since having the suspension lowered I find myself scraping the black flexible standard 'skirt' more often - more often than not on car park entrance/exit ramps or the ramps between levels. Doesn't bother me too much as it flexes a bit and so isn't going to break, just scuffs the bottom a bit. It's easy enough, and cheap enough, to replace if it gets a bit tatty.

    If I had an expensive painted front skirt and started to catch it, I'd be getting very, very, p**ed off!! There's no point either in getting the side skirts, rear skirt and not the front skirt as it would look odd with the black bit on the front!!

    So, slight dilemma there!! I think the Signum looks great kitted up in the Steinmetz stuff. I'd just hate to spend that money and end up wrecking the front skirt!! I'd also need to see one (front skirt) in the flesh as (said before) I wasn't struck on the 'scoop' look to it.

    The back of that signum looks really good.
    I have a similar problem with the black strip on the bottom of my bumper too. I've started to reverse into parking spaces now as it scrapes across the top of kerbstones. I dread to think how long a nicely painted front skirt would stay nicely painted. Or how long it would stay attached for that matter!

    Now that is avery agressive looking Signum. Imagine that with the Vx 19" alloys.

    Not a fan of the Steinmetz front. Looks a bit bulky, and sticks out at the side further than the Irmscher one.
    Anyhow have the Steinmets mirrors, as shown, on order. Promised delivery middle next week.

    whatever you do, if your car is lowered do not get the steinmetz front spoiler, i have one, the car is the standard ride height and it hits everthing, even clips my driveway and that only rises by a few inches.
    parked next to another vec without a spoiler you can really see just how much lower tha car is!!
