Is that grill painted Buck Blue with black insert? Did it come like that or have you painted it?

Looks great BTW

Yes that was my plan I wanted to get a more rectangular look to the lights without failing MOTs or blocking any light source.

I decided that light guards would also break up the appearance and make them look thinner and more D4 like.

The bottom section has been taped off as a trial but I now have a roll of black wrap to do the job perfectly.

I think that with the D4+ style grille and D4 rear lights/wheels and D4 rear bumper the overall effect is good without the 3K spend which cannot be justified on this car. Thumbs Up

PS: It also makes the inner part of the lights look a bit like spot lights with the light guards.

PS: It just passed its MOT with the lights as is. Very Happy
