That's a bit weird, I'll try and add another picture.

They were dead easy to get on, I just struggled getting the old ones off just because I was too lazy to take the front wheels off ?

If you have an angled screwdrivery it's a doddle, one piece of kit I don't have, typical ?

They do come with the plastic clips attached so at least if you break any getting the old ones off there's more to hand ?

The Lensos looked lost with the grey arches, the black of the tyres against the arch gap and the grey trims looked too much, so I was on a mission to get the arches sorted. Thankfully by buying the ones on fleabay it's saved me £60 going by the quote I've had from local body shops, plus they come with a 12 month warranty ?

Do it! Do it! ? I'm a tight wad, I'm from Yorkshire after all lol, and I was a little sceptical paying that kind of money for 'bits of plastic' but I'm so chuffed I did.

Personally I think they should all be done by Honda as standard but I guess sone people might prefer the grey trims ?

That seems cheap bearing in mind their scandalous prices for a lot of things, that's cheaper than some of the quotes I was getting for simply spraying the existing arches up ?

Perth Honda ocassional get various accessories, fuel caps, chrome trims etc and they seem very reasonable when they advertise them on ebay, I'm now following them for any updated items ?

At the mo the only thing I'm after is probably a black fuel cap cover, the car modding fund is slowly being eaten into by tattoos ?

These will be a new set of arches but colour coded and having had ours done at Honda before we took delivery I can not recommend this mod enough. Why Honda did not doe this at the factory to be fair is beyond me

i wonder which is the cheapest way to go - a new set of these or get a local painter to spray existing set?

Cheers,

all depends how cheap or dear your local bodyshop is
but modern painting is not cheap and also with painting to plastic etch primers and such like will be needed
it would be cheaper painting a full large panel than 4 wheel arch's
but it looks so much better its worth it regardless which route you take

Honda now do a civic with these colour coded as standard so by far the cheapest option will be to buy these arches from Honda as the paint finish will be perfect and at around £50 per arch will be good value as well
