If it was mine, I'd go lower, but it all personal preference! :)

Mines fitted as well now!

No pics yet as:

A: Car's filthy proper disgrace.
B: Having issues with the middle top clip/hook and the one to the right of it so it's not sitting perfect yet.

Just to confirm, i had a quick conflab with my Traffic oppo and two line plates are perfectly legal as long as they are spaced and printed to UK legal standards (makers postcode and no custom back print).
Also adhesive (sticky plastic ones) are legal too as long as they are fully visible from square on the front\back and produced to UK legal standards.

Well this is the situation at the moment, sorry to bore you guys.
The silver bits on the asian grille aren't actually chrome like the fog lights/belt line/my upper grille strip, so I'm half thinking shall I get them sprayed metallic panther black instead.
While still trying to decide on this issue I decided to blue tack a 2 line plate onto the front of my current standard grille just to get an idea of what it'll look like.... the answer: weird. The european fiesta front is definatly more suited to a standard retangle plate.

Heres some pics anyway as promised, probs just gonna pop my normal plate onto the new grille if I decide to fit it.

My concern with the square plate is how much of the vents it would cover over and above what the cross beam already covers...

Yup, been thinking that myself. Well all I wanted was to see what it would look like, and I've done that.

Well, I decided to choose lower at long last.

As previously mentioned I also had the silver inserts sprayed Ford Panther Black to match the body as the silver was like a painted effect and didn't match my upper grille strip etc.

Images are a bit dark but you get the idea. I'll take better ones tomorrow in proper daylight.

(The 2 line plate may get replaced by my normal 1 line plate, ain't decided yet - we'll see if it grows on me. The screw holes for the 1 line plate are waiting behind this plate ready for an easy swop should I get too many haters of the 2 liner lol. :unsure:)

The inserts are probs more sublte than I would have liked but nevermind - what do I expect for using the exact same colour as the body lol
