Lowering could be on the cards Coste!... Perhaps because I'm on my 3rd set of Honda Shocks which have just gained the usual knocks and creaks will be on the lookout now for a decent set of shockers and springs etc...

Oh and Osarkon... I never expected to be able to afford a GP pack but did always lust after the Sport Grille...low and behold it happened the other way round, picked up the GP pack first for only £250 and then simply couldn't pass up on a Sport Grille for only £109!!.... The grille really is the cherry on the cake when the packs fitted though...

Try this... GENUINE HONDA CIVIC FRONT SPORTS GRILLE on eBay (end time 21-Sep-10 09:16:00 BST)

To be honest It was VERY simple... however, I did already have the front bumper removed for the GP pack which made it twice as easy ...only 8 clips and 2 bolts!!

The whole kit and grille must be a doddle to fit as I managed it with ease and I've actually never so much as removed a single screw from a car body in my life!

Yeah very first job I did mate... Used the ever so popular Foliatec Caliper paint... unsure as to why it's actually so popular though as Colour "Red" actually came out looking rather purple as you can see from the pics... Got used to it know though and even kind of prefer it as it looks a little more suttle than 'bright' red and i'm trying not to go for the Type-R look.
