Go straight to Zunsport though (Zunsport are far from the cheapest place) i e-mailed them after GreatGonzo said he went straight to Zunsport too...the owner mailed me back with a very healthy discount code.....i got all the grills for 30 more than the top Grill set on its own
That is a very good price, I think I'll get some ordered

Will post some pis shortly, been wet so aint bathing it!....will look a lot like Gonzo's though i guess.......I'm pleased with the grill....terrifying to fit for me though...hated man handling the grills out of the top, then went on to hate drilling 4mm holes in the front bumper!....only took an hour for the lot, but not for the faint hearted mate!!..

I think the car now looks classier, and more descerning, un like is owner

Far as i know YES??..it made fitting the Zunsports interesting as you measure from the lip in the lower spoiler.....A lip that is covered in a standard black grill in mine, so had to prize the tap measure under it for correct fitment.....now are'nt i clever....Johnny 2 lower grills they call me...

Mine won't be that cheap if it doesn't sell it's no biggy but at 10,780 miles it's a new car still. Tight as a drum and fully loaded, the right person will buy it as it's practically perfect with the handling upgrades.

Definately gonna get a front splitter, think it should go pretty well with the tinted windows & black alloys. Absolutely loving the car, even though it is a bit thirsty for the petrol!

Regards
Rick

Hi Gonzo,
I've absolutely no idea what spoiler it is but I can tell you it's bloody heavy! I'm guessing that it must've been painted somewhere along the way before fitment.

If I can be a bit biased...lol, I love the way it looks & will be leaving it how it is apart from putting on a front splitter that I've just bought!

Ever since I saw John welch giving it sideways in his xtrac astra with black wheels many moons ago, that was it the seed was planted & I absolutely love black wheels, just happens that crystal grey is my fav colour (was looking for my05 as didn't think I could afford a 56 plate but got a great deal). However, there must be something about our little spec d's because wether the wheels be silver/black/white they all look good. I honestly haven't seen a bad looking spec d yet.
Keep the pics coming.

What's happening in Spec D land? Anyone done any mods recently. Or anyone just entered spec d ownership?

Gave mine a clay baring too the other week, looks loads better. But I like the idea of the machine polish.
