X-Men Trim Pieces.

Post by phoenix11 » Sat Feb 23, 2019 3:44 pm

Fitted these today, never seen them before. Top quality chromed steel.
Fitment is superb, think they give lower part of grill a lift. :)

They look like some randomly stuck on pieces of trim, you have the V crest, that looks good enough.

I know that front plate is small but you do realise that the only airflow to the radiator is through that lower grill.

Might not be a problem this time of year but, if we get a heatwave, it could be a different story

Shouldn't they be more towards the corners? They look really misplaced there.

Surprised you found these available somewhere!

That is the location they used for them, do they have any of the other bits?
