    I can't help I'm afraid, but after seeing them at Gaydon, i really want Carbon kidney grills and possibly the sexy little carbon splitters too.

    For your reference, at the show, the prices were about...

    Grills - £50 a pair.
    Splitters - £100 a pair.

    Just need to figure out if i'll tear the splitters off reversing onto my drive.....

    Good luck dude!

    I wrapped all my stuff on my own car in carbon fibre.
    Why not give that a try?

    I'm not very good with the hands on stuff! And foolish they seem good prices, but about the splitter at least you can pick them up from the end of your drive! :P

    That's how I sold them to myself, better to damage a £50 splitter than the whole front bumper eh!? lol.

    To be fair, I think they only add like half an inch on the bottom of the bumper, but it does catch a little already. - Other option would be to get the council to lower the pavement (it's a big climb from the dropped kerb to the edge of the drive) - but I somehow don't see that being successful!

    I'm pretty cr4p at hands on stuff too, I'd like to wrap my grills, but they're already a bit chipped and I've seen some badly wrapped ones and - ewwwwwwww.

    Gotta get some suspension work done first anyway, safety over style and all that.
