Did you all get your missing 10mm & 8mm clips sorted ?

I have lots of spares now...

Senna - Don't suppose you have the ebay links for them again? 8mm for arches, 10mm for bumper yes?

How many do you need ? should be 4 x 8mm and 2 x 10mm ?


I am sure we can arrange something (I have bought too many!)

Anyone notice that there are also holes along the underside of the front bumper too? About 5 of them I think....do these need plugging too?

The plugs I ordered off ebay didn't look right when fitted. They made the holes in the wheel arch more obvious as your eye was drawn to the grommets. I've left mine alone.

I'm tempted with the recent downpours to order the mudflaps from CTP (£62.98 + discount) and fit them myself

Don't do it!!  We''ll all be fitting tow bars and towing caravans next.
Yeah, they really mess up the lines on the arches. Ugly.

There must be a reason why there's so many missing grommets, this is silly

Yes, the reason is saving a few quid on grommets!


Anyway, you are quite right mate, there are 5 large holes about 12mm Dia, do not seem to be for drainage, so as I have no grommets that big, I have covered them with a clear Self - adhesive film.


I have some before pictures: Front of car to right:



The hole:(You can see I didn't quite fininsh the detailing off properly... out of sight, out of mind!)...



Also on drivers side there is this small removable plastic grille panel, which is quite a loose fit, and rattles quite a bit - as you can see I have secured it with sticky velcro as a strong adhesive is needed:



This car is like Work-in-Progress!

that panel does have to come off for maintenance i believe.and i suppose the holes in the front bumper are there to accommodate for the front spoiler lip of the aero-pack.

That would explain it.

I have left the grille so it can still be removed for maintenance but it rattles a lot, so needs securing.
