Default aero kit, replacement grill, etc.

I've seen the JCW aero kit, but haven't done a side by side comparison on the differences it makes. The upper and lower grill is nice. Anyone have experience with anything else?

I was definitely thinking of going with a stubby antenna.

the aero kit also replaces the black sides and wheel arches ...front and rear bumpers
since this requires painting it's an expensive addition especially with labor

Thanks very much. I am interested in possibly changing the grill both upper and lower, but haven't found anything. I haven't looked very hard, but really like the grill for the aero kit. I guess that grill comes with the front bumper.

Thank you! I'm probably just going to go with the grill since the complete aero kit is like $1200 and I'd still have to get it painted. I could the rest of my money for some performance mods.

The aero upper grill just pops right in but the lower grill is not a direct replacement part. I learned this the hard way. To get the lower grill to fit on a MCS bumper requires about 2-3 hrs of labor modification in order to get it to work. You need to dremel the holes and cut almost half the aero grill apart to get it to fit flush.

That's what I hear. I will most likely need to find some help locally to me. Or maybe I'll surprise myself and do fine. I'd have to buy or borrow a Dremel.
