    Ggggrrrrrr...Irmscher Kit

    :!: :!:

    I'm rather annoyed tonight as I took my car in to my local Vauxhall dealers (has to take afternoon off work as they need to keep it overnight) for them to fit my front spoiler and rear skirt which I ordered from another company but apparently the fitting kit for the rear skirt is missing so they can't fit it.

    They managed to fit the front spoiler but now the cars gonna look daft without the rear skirt until I can get the fitting kit. According to the dealers you can only get the fitting kit with the parts but the place I got them from are gonna try and get one too me next week.

    Got it from vauxhall spares.

    Vauxhall dealer (who are fitting it) insists there should be a fitting kit for the rear skirt as there is for the front spoiler. :?

    How did you fit yours then?

    surely it would have been easier and cheaper to go to a body shop

    Cheaper possibly, easier I don't know. I don't know any good body shops round here and can't be @rsed to find one. I just wanted to get the damn thing fitted asap so phoned the first number I could think of.

    Does it just screw onto the existing bumper?

    If so I could probably have a go at fitting it myself tomorrow afternoon and save myself a few quid in the process.

    How many screws does it need, I got a toolbox full of them?

    Thought they just bonded on then couple of screws tucked round in the wheel arch?

    They're probably just trying to punish you cos you didn't buy it from them.


    Technician: "theres no screws and adhesive in here"

    Service Manager: "did he buy it from us"

    Technician "nope"

    Service Manager: "B0ll0x then, tell him you can't fit it, ha"
