Has anyone bought a carbon fibre grill off Ali express ?

Are they any good ?

Does it fit over the existing one or is it a replacement ?

They're all stick on from Ali Express. Replacement requires bumper off. You get what you pay for in the end, like any of the carbon style stick on bits. Some are better quality than others but most aren't proper carbon, or not 100% carbon anyway. Depends what you're after really. I wouldn't stick cheapo bits onto mine but that's just me.

Got a cheap eBay grill on mine .. it looks fine IMO ... couldn’t bring myself to spend £400 plus for one that’s just stuck on

The £400 ones are full grills - require bumper off and replacement, they're not stick ons.

Sorry but there are £400 plus full carbon grills that are just stuck on ..and I would definitely not consider removing the bumper to have one fitted .. wouldn’t trust anyone to do that

Agreed about the bumper, very risky, and I stand corrected too, there are a couple of more expensive stick ons (Koshi etc.), apologies. Just don't get why people stick on £50 faux carbon piece to a £40k plus car. Each to their own I suppose.

Hi hector56 , if you look at my previous post “Cheapskate” the details and pics are there , I did get a bit of stick on the forum for doing it :rotate: but it’s still perfectly fine 9 months later later and I’m more than happy with it
