    Honeycomb grille

    are there any mk5 5 doors that come/have come with the honeycomb style bumper grilles?

    want to "de-chrome" mine and would quite like honeycomb to match the fog lights over the standard slats, although that would mean id need a honeycomb top grille.....so either would be good

    yep ive seen one for the sportshatch (from a twintop iirc?)

    cant really see vauxhalls sense in putting a honeycomb pattern around the fog lights if it isn't even an option in the bumper/grille, i'd like a honeycomb grille/bumper grille with colour coded V part so wouldnt really like to find a nice easy OE way of doing it,

    Twintop grills spring to mind here for some reason, not sure if they fit the 5 door though.

    dont think they do unfortunetly, think the twintop shares the same front end with the sportshatch, and normal hatch shares with the estate...

    yeah sport hatch and twintop bumpers are different from the 5 door hatch and estate.

    and the VXR bumper is in a league of its own lol

    btw did you know that as from 08 onwards all 5 door and estate bumpers will be the same as sporthatch and twintop??

    why don't you go custome on the bumper?

    ok i just had a look at my old and new grille

    and tbh i think you could easily mod it to fit the 5 door

    all you need is the VXR grille then use the bottom slant that has all the clips on your old grille and mold it to your new one and it will fit fine.

    i have pics if you don't know what a mean?
