    Unsure About the New Grill

    Well i got around to fitting the new grill today, took about 7 working days in the end to get here from red griffen. Only problem is i am not sure if i liek it now it is on the car. Thinking maybe i should have gone for the standard irmsher one.

    Tell me what you think, i am thinking it is the ally strip clashes with the silver paint.

    I am thinking abotu painting the ally strip, maybe black.

    Just some thoughts.

    from the pictures i think the original grill looks better, due to the fact that as you say the strip clashes with the silver paint.
    Gotta be an original irmy grill with the silver paint i think.
    Just my opinion.

    Yea it clashes, i see what u mean.

    Still looks good, but i think the standard irmy one would be better (even tho it looks dodgy with the lever that pokes out)

    I like the new grill personally and went through something similar when I got my new grill. Please don't paint it black, photoshop it black first

    It looks OK, but I am not a fan of the new Irmscher Grill, I am not keet on the cut out for the bonnet release. They are cracking grills though....

    Just been out and washed the car, in the bright early sun it looked spot on, and from a angle it looks ok. Just straight on at it you can see the colour difference and that looks odd. anyone fancy photshoping it for me black so i can see what it looks like.

    Cheers
