They weigh hardly anything!

Fragile but I like the look of them, depends how much it is I guess.

Personally i dont like them, you will be hard pushed to find one that isn't cracked,chipped or has the corners missing, i would firstly buy some stick on reflective strip to see wot you think before you shell out silly money for one.

I think they look bloody awful, but different strokes for different folks! It really depends if YOU like them, and then whether you can find one or not.

Hi, I'm pretty sure I wont bother with one
my valver looks just right now just a few
bits to tidy up.
Thanks all.
P.S. I will be after the plastic panel
that runs across the inside of the
tailgate the one you take of
to fix number plate.

Good call. A classic example of cheap-looking 'go faster' bling. I don't think they have many fans, and with good reason.
