After looking at the Titanium x sport grille with the black surrounds i decided i wanted the same on my car. The honeycomb grills are around £80 for the lower and £50 for the upper which is too much to spend just because i didnt like the chrome.
Not wanting to paint it, i decided to buy some...
Decided to black the grill as the grey plastic, to me, just looks wrong!
Plus will highlight the chrome and align with the black wheels.
Easy removing the grill but what a pain to get the chrome surround off! I though there's no way of getting this off without smashing it up!
But patience is...

Out of curiosity I unbolted the pipe, big round one which goes from the airfilter to the right side of the engine. It sits on a square which is held to the engine with 4 bolts.
Looking inside the engine I found that there was quite a lot of black oil residues on...
