Hi,

I was just wondering how hard/easy this is to fit? I know you have to cut the old one off. It's payday soon and this is next on list :D

Is it hard to cut the old one off?
Do steiney give you clear instructions?
And is it a DIY job or a professionals job to fit it?

Cheers,
Andy

If I could add an addition to this question...

The bit of the grill which sits on the top of the bumper, does this need to be painted or does it look OK as is??

It's up to your really isn't it, here's some piccies. I think it looks better colour coded but it doesnt HAVE to be done. Won't look so out of place against the plastic trim there. But if your colour coding your plastics it probably needs to be done too

NOT COLOUR CODED

shinobi - wait until Chewy is next online as he's got this grill on his corsa.

Mediamaniac - you don't have to paint that lower part, Chewy hasn't done it on his and still looks good. To be honest I think it looks better if you leave it un painted if your not going to colour-code all tge rest of the front bumper.

Cheers, just wasn't sure about the finish on it really but that sounds good. Think I'll have one of them as well!

Yeah I agree. It matches existing trim, but needs doing if rest of car is colour coded.

I really like the look of the Steiney grill, it makes the Corsa look a lot more individual. Just don't wanna mess the bumper up putting it on.

Hmm...was just about to order the grille off the steiny website but it's not a secure site! :(

Very suprised at this, guess I'll just ring them tomorrow instead.

Defo getting one then. Shame Steiney website isn't secure. Shame that- just looked my self too and when entering card details no padlock appear- bit dodgy. Will have to call them
