    XE-S valance

    Got around to fitting this a few weeks ago off a 340Ps XE-S, thought Id post a picture.

    I managed to do the swap over with the bumper still on the car using a small flat screwdriver to pop all the clips. Undo 2 x 10mm bolts under the car. Then slide out the standard one over the exhausts which was awkward. Then the trick is to slide in the new one carefully. Push it against the clips to they all click into place, put the 2x 10mm bolts back in, quick clean and admire your work.


    Looks great and was only 90 off eBay, better than 350 from a dealer.

    Here’s some better pictures.



    Side on view, the S valance covers the exhausts much more than the R-Sport valance.

    Currently struggling to carry out the same thing, different forums I've seen tend to contradict each other in terms of whether you need to remove the bumper or not, truth is I'm worried too much "persuasion" might cause damage. Especially when things like heat shield and crash bar are in the way
