    Mk4 Grill > Anyone got this one fitted?

    Not seen this grill around before

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA...1%7C240%3A1318

    Would really like this one

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Irmscher-Grill...1%7C240%3A1318

    But the price is insane for a bit of plastic and a SSteel strip!

    Anyone got the first one fitted?

    reckon it would look any good on here?

    $h!t.

    Although the actual bars running accross are very secure and tight in position and won't move. The plastics used are good and haven't reacted to any of my detailing gear which I was worried about. The chrome hasn't flaked off or discoloured or gone dull ect so huge thumbs up from me.

    So why is it so bad? Mounting. The mounting points are very very flimsy and I had to finish off the manufacturers work by actually opening up the holes where screws were to pass through. It seems their drills were not calibrated and left a very small amount of plastic behind that needed to be tapped through. But because the mounting brackets were so flimsy it made it a very tense moment going at them with a 500rpm drill. I very carefully fitted it making sure that I didn't overtighten the screws which would of led to a mounting point failure for sure.

    Don't let my experience dishearten you though as I'm very very happy with my grill and everyone has their own opinion on it and thats fair enough. But I'm very happy with it and apart from some extra modifications I wasn't expecting I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

    FYI my grill is an FK Sports grill from LMF Vauxhall.
