    Irmy Grill. . . . or not (+ your pics please)

    Hello all. first question, has anybody got a cheap cross hatch grille (irmy style) from supanovas on ebay? i was considering it. is it a case of you get what you pay for or are they as good as the proper irmscher ones?

    it's just, irmscher ones are expensive and i'd rather not pay lots at the min.

    secondly, i can't decide on the silhouette or the 'i' badge. can you post your cross hatch grille pictures (mk4 hatch) so i can decide. cheers

    I bought a copy of one from LMF. It cost about £45 I think. The paint on the indside of the grille sections is abit runny, but you can't see it when it's on the car. I might change it for a real Irmscher item eventually, but for the price of the real deal I could get a rear bumper irmscher extension....

    You have to modify the pull on all crosshatch grilles as far as i'm aware. Why don't you buy the silouhette and the I badge and chop and chage when you want?

    Sorry to be a bit off topic how easy is it to put the badge on? On an imitation crosshatch grill as a pose to the real one? Is it just a case or glueing it on?

    Yeah you get a badge holder which slots on and glues in place, then you fit the chrome badge on to the holder, easy stuff.

    Why get a copy for 45 and buy the badges etc when you can usually get an original for 50?

    Just a thought...

    yeah, 50 notes second hand. And anyway, the LMF crosshatch grille is near identical and there isnt much difference, only the price.

    just noticed, LMF have one on ebay for a tenner cheaper than their website. bargain. can't really argue with that. it was mentioned above about swapping badges when i get bored, but once you glue the carrier on isn't it stuck? or is the carrier the same for both badges?
