    Hiya, i still have a set for the rear that seem to be a totally different material / finish to normal, these couldn't be painted, i had taken them back to the dealer to ask some questions but they said there was only one part number so they should all be the same Seems to be a 1 off problem though, as i decided to go to another dealer and buy another set of rears, which were painted with no problem !
    As for a guide to painting, i dont know, i took mine to a garage

    got my flaps today and will paint them myself sometime this weekend, make sure you use a quality plastic primer, then prime them about 3-4 coates and rub down then paint on top of primer, i normaly give about 4-5 coats, then rub down again and apply 5-6 coates of lacquer...

    allow to dry before appling each coat of primer/paint/lacquer,

    i have done this a few times now and the results were always good, but if anyone else can come up with a better way then yes pls
