    Which Grille will look the bees-knees?

    After changing the grille on the blue GSi looking to change the grille on the silver one. The blue has the Irmscher grille with the irmscher car on the front which looks fab. Has anyone got any pics of GSis with a different grille so I can get some ideas?

    Thanking you

    Much Love,

    I like the Lumma one like on Robs. Just seems to blend in really well

    GSi front bumper suits a few grills IMO.

    Irmscher grill
    Kamei ( spelling ) grill
    Lumma grill ( LMF do a cheaper version of a near identical thing )
    OPC grill

    re: Which Grille will look the bees-knees?

    Thanks guys. Forgive me for my incredible lack of knowledge - just looked on the Lumma website - like the grille but how does the bonnet lever fit in to the grille as the grille looks mesh type. Has anyone got a closer picture of the grille as the website ones are pretty small

    Much Love,

    Leicester Motor Factors will sell the OPC one.

    If you have a look in the Gallery for Robs car, that has some nice shots of the Lumma grille. Looks nice against his blue

    what about a stiemetz (spelling?) grill. Its the same as the irmscher grill but with square holes instead of rectangular, I think they look far better!

    I do like the Steinmetz grill - been onto Regals and can get it for £121.00 plus postage.

    Does this have the same problem with the bonnet latch as does the Irmscher in that you have to alter the latch?

    Really confused now as I like all of the grilles which have been proposed - which one would you go for? :roll:

    Steinmetz
    Irmscher
    Lumma
    OPC

    Help!!!!!!

    Much Love,

    Could get the new Lexmaul one for £105 from Regals

    Bonnet latch on the Steinmetz needs trimming like the Irmscher one would
