As far as I know, the accessories are not factory fit. In the UK they seem to be priced to include fitting by the dealer. In Spain they are cheaper, but fitting is not included. Most are simple stick on bits, but the front "off-road" grill takes 4 hours to fit. I was going to get it, but not at that price! I will go with the basic trim and fog light surround, plus the boot trim and protector (these really ought to be standard on the Xcellence version.)
Yes... you are right... I saw 6/17 and (wrongly) assumed it was month 6! :?

I am just looking at the lower front grille moulding (like Saggy has on hers) and wouldn't have thought that would take 4 hours to fit.... apparently it uses a combination of clips and sticky tape, but it may well be a 'dealer fit' anyway... I will check when I visit them again tomorrow.

Is this also the "off-road" grill you mention, or is it the more substantial one (as shown on page 52 of the main brochure) which I think is part of a styling kit or something, and is what confused me in the first place... not all that difficult these days! ;)

Montana - the 'simple' lower grille moulding is really simple to fit, I've read the instructions but have yet to fit mine; it is held on by a series of clips that fit into the gaps in the existing grill, and also secure with grab tape on various points. A careful approach would see it as a DIY job. There are both front & rear "off road" bumper extensions that (for the rear can combine with replacement sports exhausts) but these are much more complicated to fit; haven't seen the instructions but imagine these require drilling, primer and other fixings to fit. I think Saggy has got the additional trim just right without it being tacky i.e. Front grill, fog surrounds and bumper protector. I have all of these to fit, plus the the tailgate trim and mudflaps - that's as far as I will go; too old now to "pimp my ride" too much :lol: :lol:

I have no idea what they would cost in your part of the world; between them I paid roughly £180 Sterling, without fitting :D

@Bagheera... I know you didn't ask me, but have a look at http://www.seatpartsshop.co.uk/category ... 017,b.html

That is who Saggy uses, and having spoken to them on the phone today, I found them very helpful and knowledgeable.

Good prices at the moment too! ;)

EDIT: Oops... I now have a feeling that you aren't in the UK... sorry! :?

Assistance appreciated, mate, thank you :) I haven't asked for the local prices yet, just wondered what it could be in the UK.

Hello Sally,

I have been intrigued by the attention you (or your car) is getting, probably the former. I have a question please. IN the 8th picture you display the red flashes on the door interior. Did those come with the Decorative Pack (which I have ordered) or did you have to get them separately?

Hi there

when I ordered you bought all the trim bits separately
