    Talking Honeycomb lower grille and fog lamps

    hey, has anyone on here or someone you know attempted to fit the vxr lower honeycomb grille and the fog lamp grilles to the standard facelift sri bumper??
    I fancy attempting this but would like to hear of any disaster stories or problems people faced.
    Cheers

    I have sold a few VXR centre bumper grilles so I'm guessing they are a direct fit.

    The VXR fog light grilles won't fit but I'm sure someone will correct me

    are they bigger or smaller. the opening in the bumper isnt as big as the sri grille, so im thinking a bit of fiddling is in order, but i dont want to waste my money if i dont stand a chance!

    VXR/XP2 lower grill is deeper.....goes higher up the bumper, hence smaller area to fit number plate. Fog surrounds are different shape unfortunatelly. I think the top grill will fit but not much use if the rest don't.

    I wasn't too keen on my original XP2 grill inserts and have the VXR inserts to fit once I get a lower skirt to match.

    I think you need to look out for a VXR bumper, then you will be happier
