Over time the front grilles and the ones on the side air intake vents can start to lose their original colour and look a bit shabby.

Whilst there are plenty of replacement grilles you can buy from ebay and other various sources a full replacement kit can range anywhere between £15 to £50. Now I'm not quibbling about prices but for those of you who want a less expensive option then I highly recommend Plasticote paints.

Plasticote do a range of different coloured paints and I bought the chrome effect paint for £3.50 from B&Q. You can buy them in brush or spray form. I bought the brush on form. It's a small pot but will last you around 10 applications and you only need to repaint your grilles once a year.

You also don't need to take the front bumper off as you can just take your registration plate off and mask off the surrounding area. Ideally you want to do two coats.

Here are some before and after pictures for you:

As you can see a fantastic improvement for just £3.50! :)
