I have just fitted this kit myself and apart from the jack slipping (very scary) had no problems. The kit looks amazing and I am really happy with the results.
Few questions though. With regards to the reflectors, do you have to put them on or are there any type of blanking plates you can fit? Why do the reflectors have blubs in them? And how do you secure the reflectors, they don't seem to clip in or bolt in anyway?
Just fitted mine today, and secured them with a hot melt glue gun. However I did find that the holes in the bumper were mis-aligned and I had to drill adjacent holes to fit. I am not aware of inserts available to replace them - you could always just spray paint them!
i am going to purchase one of these kits, and i have planned on tiniting the reflectors myself, not too dark. but i also want to wire up the sidelight bulbs using the newministuff kit. I think it looks really good and very different to any of the uk ones.
i have one of the kits too got it fitted about 4 months ago,i think the kit looks even better with the reflectors as it stand out that little bit more however u can buy new bumper plates at
