50 posts in this topic

Hi, could you please link me to the exact ones you ordered? Been looking on the net and it's hard to find, and can't find any at the prices you've stated, thanks

I used the product numbers Willy supplied and went to my dealer. Turned out to be cheaper then European parts :-)

Aright mate a did it yesterday but don't be scared but try and pull from the corners first as it makes it easier then take off the chrome surround as it makes it a lot easier you will probably bin it anyway as easily broken ones taken off large grill use ur hand to reach down and remove lower grill much easier then fogs but there will be a point ur like :o! C.rap a better leave it but don't just keep pulling and you will get the nack of it and will be proud once done

Front Spoiler next ...............

Start by removing the black rivets from under neath the front bumper, there will be 8 to remove and will require you jacking up the front of the car so that you can get good access with your drill.

Once removed you'll need to fish out the old pot rivets. this is a pain but be patient.

Next you'll need your new spoiler and rivets.

Place the spoiler in the locating holes under the bumper, insert a rivet where the old ones were, and pop away until all 8 are done and the spoiler is firmly in place.

Willy, what size drill piece did you use to drill the old rivets out?

I've got one of these coming tomorrow - paid £20 for it! WIN, WIN!

I think it was a 5 or 5.5 mate. Start with the smallest one first.

Would this count as a modification to the insurers?

Almost certainly yes.

Contact them & inform them what you are doing to be safe, or you could end up uninsured in the event of a claim, which is not where you want to be :(

This time the bumper was removed to preserve the old grille. I call it the Titanium S :)
