    a few mm's, but you soon get used to it,

    and they do a great job of stoping the stone chips ,

    just make sure you put the mounting bracket under the headlight seal, and not on top , like some have done, it makes the cover sit much lower and more secure

    Chris (Drinky) painted the carbon fibre bits black on the inside 'cause the carbon fibre look isn't very good on them. I've followed suit with mine and they look miles better. I'll stick some pictures up tomorrow

    You still have the carbon effect after painting them, it just looks better IMO. Hold on, I'll get some pics.

    Here's the pics of my 'painted' covers. The close up shows the effect of the paint. Makes the carbon effect stronger I think.
