    Haha though.

    Think I'll probably just buy a set off ebay so I can take them off if I change cars. Saying that though are they hard to paint ie is it just a spray you can buy in Halfords or do you need to get a pro to do it?

    Would like to see how they look fitted if anyone has a pic with this colour car...?
    I imagine (that's all I've done,.. Imagine!)it's easy to paint them..it's all prep!...
    Thanks for the Thanks...Even if it was by accident..I feel Important...
    on a serious note ,I do think the colour of the car has bearing on the black grill effect!

    I dunno the middle of the grill is black anyway so a black border wont make much difference IMO

    Hmm I linked the pics from bmtown.com and when I try to go there now, their sites down, so hopefully the pics should come back when the site is back up!

    Other choice is spray the grill surround the same colour as your car but leave the slats black
