Finally got around to taking some pics after getting all the trim colour coded.

Genuine ED30 rear valance, got a good deal on ebay, painted shadow blue and gloss black on the lower accent.
It turned out cheaper to get new black GTI side skirts and have them sanded and painted than get ED30 ones.
Front spoiler is also sanded and painted, again with the lower part gloss black.

That looks really really good. Have you got a price for each of those jobs? I would be very interested in doing the same with my Shadow Blue GTI. Just wondering what it would cost. Still looking for ED30 rear bumper (do you have a before/after picture?) wondering how different they look (not just in terms of it being painted). Thanks

Cheers flakie, i cant remember the exact pricing, from the scraps of paper i have lying around i think it was roughly:-
Rear valence  - 250 (two colours)
Side skirts - 150 a side
Front spoiler - 80 (two colours)
All fitted and cash in hand, no VAT, but i think i ended up paying about 700. The car was filthy dusty so he gave me 40 quid off to get it valeted (pocketed it and washed it myself)
Not including the 160 for the rear valence (praise ebay) and 40 odd quid for the side skirts, each. Oh and he also got out some minor to medium scuffs and scrapes in the surrounding areas.
As for before photos check out this thread i made when i bought the rear valance back in July, you can see the shape better in silver.
