    As for fixing it on, I'll have to get a picture to show you better, but basically I've cut all the tabs off that the original grille attaches too apart from along the top and the sides, and then I used a tiny drill to drill a little hole through each of the tabs that are left and put a cable tie through and then just attach the mesh there so inside it isn't perfectly flush to the bumper along the top but you can't see that and it is flush along the bottom so looks all good!

    Alternatively, another mate of mine cut all of the tabs off altogether, used mastik or something to glue little blocks of wood to the inside and then screwed the mesh onto those. Looks quite tidy but I didn't wanna do that cause I had a fear of the wood coming detached from the bumper haha.
    Thanks a lot mate.

    I'm sure it was 520mm x 80mm mate, I'd have to double check but %99 sure that was the size!

    The website was platecreator.com I believe.

    Yeah I think most of them do! something to do with the different material of the bumper I think as opposed to the metal?
