    So as the title says, I have purchased the above front bar upgrade. I have also dropped my car at the body shop to get this installed.

    The only reason I did this was due to the fact that I had a 1cm scratch on the middle of the front bar, caused by a tenant from one of my rentals reversing into me. The insurance company paid me out, and i organised the bar myself.

    Fingers crossed it turns out as good as I am hoping!

    Has anyone else bought and fitted this bar?

    @Dilz photos when you can please....

    How much did you cost you to import (purchase/shipping etc.) and cost to have painted/fitted?

    Bought it from Unplugged Australia (Dave - Awesome Bloke).

    Kit was on special when i bought it, but retail is around $3500.
    Install cost was $800ish.

    I also bought the Carbon Fiber Rear spoiler at the same time

    Looks quite good actually. Does it deal with the jump starter terminals located behind the black plastic element that pops out with a whack on top?

    Yes, there is a way of accessing this supposedly (was informed of this by Dave). I haven't received the car yet, but once i do, i will be more than happy to write something up for you guys.

    The amazing thing is that it supposedly uses the same factory bolt positions and plastics etc. So, if i ever decide to go back to stock, its simple as popping the new one off, and putting the old one back on.

    Thinking about COMPLETE AERO KIT FOR TESLA MODEL X, but I don't think they will have local stock...

    Checked out the website, I think it looks quite nice. I was musing that the current design ICE trend is for bigger grille’s , yet the future is minimal air cooling requirements. Brings a bigger differentiation between ICE and PEV.

    Just a little update. We had a few fitment issues at the moment. a combination of a bit of damage from shipping, and not having the best weather down here has helped. I have take some photo's which i will upload. But the bar will need to go back to get realigned properly, which i am hoping to get done this week. Will keep you guys in the loop.

    Also, the Carbon Fibre rear spoiler looks really nice :), so very happy with that.

    They aren't that big a deal, and i'm sure everything will get sorted out within the next few days.

    The guys from Unplugged have been great, and Steve - Bodyshop, is awesome, so between them, i am very confident we will have it solved one way or the other.

    Wow, big improvement!

    Are you going to do the paint on the side skirts and back to complete the “look”?
