My bumper needed a respray anyway, it was with Autofarm for a load of other work so I asked them to do it. They copied the grill size from a GT3 and I supplied the black aluminium mesh. The body shop then tidied it all up when it was in for paint so it looks perfect!

I was tempted to do myself, but I knew it would need paint and smoothing out so left it to the pros, glad I did in the end!!

Love the look. Reminds me of the 4 air intakes on the Porsche 924 turbo (But this is nicer obviously!) Does it have an affect on aerodynamics?

I bought an old bumper off ebay with a damages splitter , and a grill that had fallen off. So I got some flexible black filler, and repaired the splitter and resprayed it and tidied the gap with some black silicone .
The grill I made up some brackets and then glued these to the inside of tghe bumper with some black flexible adhesive. The edge of the smile cut out I edges with some kit car edging. The grill was stock porsche but doesnt give a nice edge to the bumper without the edging. It looks better than it sounds
My wifes not a fan of the look, but all in for about 100£ including the bumper, its a bit of fun. I'm keeping it on, haters or otherwise. Smile
