Excellent. The quality looks very good given the low price. I had some difficulty undoing the two 10mm bolts that fix it in place at first. Presumably they haven't been moved since the car was built 13 years ago. You have to use a spanner rather than a socket and you don't have much room to work. However, application of easing oil and WD40 seemed to do the trick and once they were loosened it only took a matter of minutes to fit the grill. The 10mm bolts have captive nuts so you don't have to worry they will drop off and get lost. It looks very smart once fitted and I'm glad I didn't go for the black one. I also feel the radiator is a bit more protected now as it was showing signs of impacts in several places. Once it was fitted I contacted the insurers (LV) who said it was a body kit/bodywork change and upped the insurance by £16.50! Highly recommended.
