    Cheers. TBH I'm not that bothered about losing the slats, I just wanted the get rid of the chrome surround and I thought a new grille might sort out both. Unfortunately the best it seems I can hope for with the honeycomb replacement is two black surrounds which I think solves one problem and creates another.

    Looks like I need some vinyl wrap and an artistic friend...

    Cool.

    Lose one of the surrounds, knock off about £70 and paint the "S" black and all and it's an effing deal...

    Try looking at the honeycombe grille in another light. Not only does it look good but it can stop flying objects from puncturing the radiator behind, the straight bars could potentially allow more damage fro bigger objects.

    Very true. Can you also supply a windscreen riot shield to match?

    I second that! And +5 C isn't warm enough either :p. Lots of pulling and using a screw driver for the clips did the trick, but not without breaking both of them :). Doesn't really matter though, it's securely in place without them.

    Fitted my grille today, took about 15 mins.

    yes the side clips are a pain at ist, but using a long flet head screwdriver as advised by the OP worked a treat.

    the 'bees nest' grill does match the lower gille on mine, it looks a lot better too

    Hey peeps!

    The "chrome" surround on my slated grille ('07 Cupra) has started peeling. Does anyone know the part number (and price) for the slatted grille with the black surround as fitted to later pre-FL Cupras?

    Thanks...
