    Irmscher Grille/ Bonnet Release Tab

    Hey guys/girls. I fitted an Irmscher grille to my astra today and i'm not 100% happy. The bonnet release tab makes it look crap imo! I have modified it so it doesn't stick out far; as shown in the how to's, but i still think it looks out of place.

    Has anyone modified it differently or found a way of releasing the bonnet without the tab in that location?

    I think the grille looks awesome when the tab is of... just need to find away to make it look good and still be able to open the bonnet without squeezing my hand under the bonnet

    Hi ya,
    I trimmed the Tab as much as possible, then placed it as far back as possible and painted the white arrow black, you don't even notice it.

    Same here. Used a marker pen to colour the white arrow in.
