    Default Facelift V Grille..

    Hi guys,

    Firstly may I wish you all a Happy New Year!!

    Does anybody know where is the cheapest place to buy a primed V grille, i am going to phone LMF Monday for a quote, cant see it on their web site!

    My local dealer wants £47.55 inc vat, is that reasonable? Vaux accessories wants £52.56.

    Is there anywhere else cheaper?

    Thanks,
    Roy.

    Assuming you want to paint it, I sanded the chrome one down, gave it a good key for the primer to stick to, then painted! Total cost about 25 rips..

    If you dont want to paint it, I have no idea!

    You have one main choice, Vauxhall as it is a main dealer part, LMF may offer a slightly cheaper price as they buy from a Vauxhall dealer with discount and sometimes pass's some of this discount to customers.

    But he is a business so don't be suprised if the price LMF quote is the same as a dealer. When I bought mine, I am sure it was about £40/£45 inc VAT.

    The best thing to do is order one from a main dealer and negotiate a discount.

    Paint the chrome V, give it a really good key and then spray it with Self Etching Primer as that sticks like sh]t to a blanket, and then paint with the colour and then clearcote. Job done
