Very easy to fit, make sure you have a pair of long nosed pliers with you to wiggle it into place as once its in place you can't get your finger around it to move it that final few millimeters.Quality seem in line with the price paid, a nice addition to the car and hopefully may stop a stone from hitting the radiator core.

Excellent. The quality looks very good given the low price. I had some difficulty undoing the two 10mm bolts that fix it in place at first. Presumably they haven't been moved since the car was built 13 years ago. You have to use a spanner rather than a socket and you don't have much room to work. However, application of easing oil and WD40 seemed to do the trick and once they were loosened it only took a matter of minutes to fit the grill. The 10mm bolts have captive nuts so you don't have to worry they will drop off and get lost. It looks very smart once fitted and I'm glad I didn't go for the black one. I also feel the radiator is a bit more protected now as it was showing signs of impacts in several places. Once it was fitted I contacted the insurers (LV) who said it was a body kit/bodywork change and upped the insurance by £16.50! Highly recommended.

Good quality and very easy to fit. Looks great and sits BEHIND the tow eyes. You need a 10mm socket and extension bar to get at the two bolts which secure it. Took me less than 10mins to fit. Very pleased with result.

Perfect for the job! I don't know what all the fuss is about. I was nervous after reading some of the reviews about how hard it would be to install but it took me about 10 minutes and I have NO experience of anything mechanical. Just put one side in first and then the other and it sort of 'clicks' into place around the baby teeth. Then bolt it up and you're done.It sits quite far back so it's not massively obviius but it will clearly stop the stones which is what it's for. Next day delivery too. Very happy.

Great product for the price, I bought it mainly to protect the radiator from anything entering the enormous mouth they have but it definitely looks much better as well.
