    I decided after lots of thought to partially vinyl wrap my front bumper. Always didn't like the bottom white section of the front bumper and now I've wrapped it, I think it looks a lot more sporty and the lines of the front are more aggressive.

    Just thought I'd see what people think as I haven't seen this done anywhere online. 7f6b47b0d016a22734591493bcefbe19.jpg fd0d113d40b438283028f4a7ce3c6a74.jpg

    I actually quite like that. Not sure on the vents, unless they're functional ie hiding a megane engine?

    Front vinyl wrap look good :smile:

    Without being negative - the vents would look hugely better if they were real. ie: Cut into the bonnet properly imo.

    I presume these are stuck on ? They do look it.

    Thanks Shuv.

    I think I may just remove them.

    I know some here have done it......

    But i'm considering buying a second bonnet (Especially as mine isnt perfect anyway), getting a vent cut in and getting it resprayed. And then selling or keeping current bonnet.

    Im presuming the bonnet would need a respray after fitting a vent ? !

    Sounds like a good idea, will have to keep an eye out for a cheap breakdown bonnet.

    I wouldnt think you would have to respray the bonnet unless the one you get is obviously a different colour to your blue in the first place!

    Love the wrap! I think the shape and lines of the bottom half of the bumper are part of the reason why it looks so good. It would definitely be harder to make it look as good on a 197 bumper I reckon.

    Thanks @DS197.
    Tried to make the lines of the black sections run through to the floor, took me ages but I am really happy with how it turned out.

    Yeah I wouldnt do it to a 197 as they have no black contrast colour above unlike the 200s.

    Like the wrap, echoing above on the vents! But they are a marmite sort of thing!!

    Love the vinyl. Can you buy it cut to size or do you just buy a sheet and DIY.

    Wrap has been done before. Looks good though. Vents, not so much. I have vents but actually for a reason and the bonnet was sacrificed for it.

    I 'diy'ed it so got a roll and cut myself to size. Told awhile but well worth it IMO.

    Thanks & the vents are coming off. I haven't been sure on them for a while now but have decided to take them off. As Chris said they are a marmite kinda thing.

    Have you got a picture of your front end so I can see how yours look, may be worth it getting some cut in if I like yours, then I can sort out my induction to the vents etc.

    They weren't in on Saturday, still had holes so taking pics was pointless lol. However, he did send me this one. Tbh I'm not 100% on them. a29a2070d395aef977da4be6ab33de34.jpg
