    cheap NON irmscher Plastic Eyebrows MK4 - any good?

    Hi i am a big fan of Genine Irmscher products as they are just top quality but at the PVS at the trade stands i was looking at genuine Irmscher Eyebrows and much much Cheaper Plastic Copies and they both looked about the same quality and look to be honest, although the Irmscher ones were slightly thicker plastic used i noticed

    here is my car:



    Do you recon Eyebrows Would suit it or just ruin it as i am unsure really myself, my mate recons i sould get some thats why i am tempted, i am in the process of getting a irmscher bonnet extension anyway.

    Has anyone got a set of these and how do they Fit/Look on the car,

    I was thinking of getting something like these off ebay,

    I wouldnt recommend ones from ebay

    I bought a set once, and they snapped very very easily.

    Which they did

    Slightly off topic but I love the look of your Coupe! There is something "right" about a standard looking coupe, I'm not a fan of what is in my opinion big bumpers, splitters and the like!.

    ive got 2 sets

    1 set are fibreglass and dont fit very well and the other set are these said cheaper copies and one is bigger than the other.

    Ive trimed one down and cut bits off and reprofiled them and they still dont sit right

    Im either going o have to bite the bullet and pay £50 for the irmscher ones or just not bother

    ill pm you the link to the ebay ones i bought later - there made of abs plastic and fit nicely - they hook under the light rubber and require either glueing or sticky pads to the top of the lights. I wouldn't buy fibre glass ones.
    I bought some double sided pads (strong enough indeed, so much so I dont thing there gonna come off in one piece)
