As you're in Slovenia, it might be cheaper for you to get one of the RomaTech ones from Germany http://www.romatech.de/shop-english/...f201/index.php

Well Crap. I got one of these covers based on the reviews and the ebay seller said it was good though 2011. I looks like they redesigned the bottom fasteners for the radiator. Looking at the link in this thread on the install confirms it. Now what do I do?

Mine's a DIY cos the good and nice ones are way too expensive and the low priced ones have poor air flow design.

Just ordered my Evotech. Capn Kirk, the fact I only had one mounting tab on the top of my radiator was driving me nuts until I found your mounting instructions with pics. Thanks!

Hi!
This production is homemade, I did a radiator grille from a fine grid that I bought from a store building materials here in Portugal.
I just had to take measurements, cut, fold and assemble, the result is spectacular.
Look at the photos you put here.

Thinking of DIY something like Cox radiator guards. Love the curved look.

The curved radiator guards are made for curved radiators only... Actual picture coming soon.

Thanks, Invader. It's a look which I will research if feasible when I'm free. Cheers!

I decided that with a proper fender extender one doesn't really need a radiator guard.
I have the Pyramid plastic's one and hardly any spray from the tire hits the radiator. A little longer extender would be even better.

Before I put the fender extender I had a DIY radiator guard made out of aluminium chicken-wire. It's in the bin now.
It certainly doesn't help with cooling the engine.

That a good point, Ivan. Had just put a fender extender on put haven't really seen/tested it's effect yet. If good, might also just leave it this way then.
