GT spoiler for XR8 and Grill for front bumper

Has anyone done anything with the following. 1. Fit GT rear spoiler to XR8? and 2.Has anyone been able to source same grill to fit in air intake under front bumper of XR8. GT has it's own with FPV logo woven in , I just wonder why this hasn't been done for 8. To me it looks at bit bare and susceptible to damage from stones etc. Any info/thoughts appreciated. Thanks

I've put mesh in AU XR8s - there's no reason you couldn't do it to the BAs. But the FPV mesh would not be appropriate considering that the BA XR8 is not badged as FPV.

As for the rear spoiler - good, but expensive, idea.

Yeah....but im sure places like

http://www.ssv.com will soon have cheap copies....

I like the GT wing idea but the mesh bit...i dunno. wil either look cheap or like a wanna be GT. Either one doesn't seem particularily desirable

Grill Insert Lower Bumper

Talk to Rob or Geoff at Herrods in the next few weeks I have it on good authority that they will be offering something to suit.

Unless you own an FPV, it will be really hard to get an FPV insert. I know the boys in spare parts at my local ford dealer, and they couldnt even get me one..

I did get a std XR one - have a look at my post here:
