Meh, it doesn't look very classy IMO, couldn't see something like that coming from the factory at all, but I guess it's alright as far as 'street' style is concerned. Well executed idea, though.

Re: Colour coded front grill

you might have picked the wrong car, with his bonnet having black on it the grills looked like they matched up nice..

Re: Colour coded front grill

thanks guys might give it a go on the xt but do everything in one go. The door moulds the grill the side mirrors and the lower grill.

I have just bought a Phantom xr6 sedan and was thinking of doing the same thing. Have you got any pics of it that you could show us?

Sold the EL XR6, I now own a Phantom BA XR6
