Hmm I don't agree that rieger grill looks better than anything else..

I heard the fitment is bad with the rieger grills is that true ? and at £ 91 with vat and p+p compared with a gsi grill at £23 with vat and p+p it makes you think twice..

the rieger grill will fit perfectly - if the person fitting it does it properly. if you sit it in place and spend 2 minutes with the sikaflex then yes its a bad fit. if you spend an hour or 2 trimming and shaping and getting the fit you want then its a perfect fit.




first 2 pics of rieger grills i came to on my pc. the bottom 1 was fitted in a bodyshop - fits perfect
top 1 is my car and was fitted by me in half an hour - fits perfect

yes its more expensive, but then its different to all the other gsi grilles out there. also by the time you've had a bonnet extension fitted, smoothed, and resprayed the bonnet your talking £150 so the grill is a saving.

dogsy your convincing me to get a rieger grill :) I never got one as people told me the fitting is bad but it do look good when the gap along the top is of equal distance..

Hers a pic of the bonnet extension and debaged gsi grill ..



^^ I think it looks better with out the bonnet extension and just a debaged gsi grill..

But if your getting the bonnet bad boyed I would keep the v grille and mesh it or slat it see pics below, looks much better.

if your getting a bonnet extension, please dont waste money on a fibreglass stick on 1 - it'll crack and warp within 6 months. pay the extra and get the bonnet extended with metal. a decent bodyshop will charge you an extra £30 or £40 to make a metal 1 - about the same cost as the fibreglass 1.
