    So ive just got my brand new VF and Im wondering if its worth getting the Headlight Protectors, Bonnet Protectors, Mud flaps, Weathershields or the Sports Armour?

    I've got a black VF and I don't think the sports armour would look bad at all.

    Has anyone else got them on their car?

    I've got everything except the sports armour but I didn't know of it's existence. The rest is just good insurance and don't detract from the looks of the car either.

    The Sports Armour doesnt look bad. Apparently theres some after market ones that come carbon fibre wrapped.

    If your car is black then the sports armour will not stand out as much and it is good protection for the front lip against gutters.....good thing is if it gets scratched you can sand it back and spray it of wrap it cheaper then respraying the front bar...

    Hey thunderballs, great pic.

    Did the Sports Armour make the front of the car any lower (e.g. is there less clearance) ?

    On my ve it would probably be a few millimetres lower but the armour attaches to the same bolts that are under the front bumper so the thickness of the armour is how low it will make it if that makes sense..

    It makes the front bumper lower by about 5mm but the skid panel under the bay is lower than the front bar I believe

    I love the idea of a carbon wrapped bonnet protector but I wouldnt have a clue on doing it. Maybe I should just look in to getting a black one..


    But speaking of Carbon Wrapping.
