1 - First class service as usual from MX5PATS.CO.UK. I ordered my grill on Sunday night and it was delivered first thing on Tuesday morning.
2 - This is a lot of money to pay for 6 steel tubes with some bolts and plastic end caps. Only ever buy the Jaws grill. All other styles can be created from this one by simply unbolting the unwanted tubes.
3 - I had previously purchased and fitted a woven steel mesh grill. Some time ago I asked the MX5PARTS team if I could fit the Jaws grill over it. They advised me that it couldn't be done. "There's not enough room". They were absolutely right. The woven mesh grill sits too far forward to allow the the bolts to mate with the tie downs. Challenge set.
4 - My thanks to Adrian, the previous reviewer. His comments about securing one end of the grill with a cable tie while bolting the other end in place, inspired me. If my woven mesh grill is securely mounted in the air intake, why can't I just lock the Jaws grill to it? Six cable ties now invisibly hold the Jaws (now trimmed to Shark) in place for a Bentley/Jag R style finish. I like it.
5 - This would have been 5 stars if the price had been a bit more resonable.
