    Default The Grill Mistake has bee rectified!!!!

    Sorry guys, I could not live with the Irmscher grill, so it had to go. It was not in keeping with the 'Improved Elite' theme.

    So I bought the VXR honeycomb grills for top and bottom. With the colour coded V back in place I really am pleased with the result!! The bottom section is quite a bit bigger but there is enough room to fit it without cutting, and locates on the number plate screw lugs which makes it easy to square it up. I also re-fitted the chrome trim on the bottom to keep the Elite theme.





    I then ordered a Signum '2.0 Turbo' badge and a Tigra '1.3 CDTi' badge which happens to be in the same chrome font to make a '3.0' and added it to the rear!!



    Hope you like it!!!!!, well pleased now, I may even fit the chrome V, what do you reckon?

    The irmscher grill will be in the for sale section later this evening, I thought it nicer to offer it to our members before it goes on ebay.

    looks much better mate, think the irmscher grill looked out of place with the colour of your car, the colour coded v grill looks great and the honeycomb looks tops.

    I did think about it, the VXR fog lights are the same as a standard car like mine, and honeycomb fog surrounds will fit the standard bumper, but if you remove the fog surrounds on mine, there are two holes which would not be covered, so I would need either the VXR bumper of VXR Line 2 bumper.

    But cheers for the comments guys, really pleased with the result.
