I have just received a load of marketing bumph from my 'stealer', obviously after a months ownership they feel I should be getting a few bells and whistles.

According to this the aditional headlights weigh in at an astonishing 405 yes 405.

I may phone them to see what this actually includes.

495 from Mini Park Lane

I don't fancy doing this myself. Does anyone know of a good company who can do this for a tad less than both my arms?

How much do they charge per hour labour, because they should only be charging you for an hour according to the fitting instructions, unless they give the job to somebody who doesn't know what they are doing.

Good point - I'll ask them to break out parts and labour.

The quads look awsome! Can you use the same grill if you make the holes yourself?

....Nah, you dont need a new grill, just dremel holes in your existing one for the brackets to fit through. Very simple, easy job that took me 5 mins, and cost saving.
Check out item #290406653898 on ebay...but be quick they're going fast.
