Its the ING front bumper and side skirts with the R-Magic rear end and spoiler, being two different kits it looks quite good I think!

Dead easy James - to be fair, Seejay sorted me out with everything i needed as i loved how professional his looked but basically, 2 L shaped brackets, i sprayed them black, 4 bolts/screws, drilled carefully from underneath, but watch you don't drill through the headlight washer hoses (they move easy), then fit into place. The only difference from mine to SeeJay's was i decided to utilise the original plate holder. You will be left with 2 holes where the original plate holder was but i fitted 2 rubber gromits from halfords, easy.

@RX8James:

This is the panel you drill through,just under the front of the bumper..the washer hose runs above this panel.

Note you'll need a nut,or similar spacer (red arrow),to enable the bracket to clear the lip (white arrow) :wink:

I also run a ¾ plate on mine.
