    I think it would look good with silver mesh to be honest mate. It would match the chrome strip on your irmscher grille.

    I think SQ Man has done something similar to his bumper - not sure if his is a standard bumper or not, though.

    SQ Man's bumper, pretty sure it's the standard item with an Irmy splitter fitted and the grille ripped out and meshed.

    Saw one on a silver SRi today at Westerham.

    He had left the big bars (to mirror the irmy grille) and put silver mesh behind the black bars.

    Looked great.
