Pimp your Grandland - have you fitted 'upgrades'?

Post by edgejedi » Fri Feb 16, 2018 8:59 am

Being on PCP Im wary of adding too many extras to the car, so I probably wont add a lot. Right now there doesn't seem to be a lot of things around due to the car being quite new to the market I guess.

My Antara (I owned) was fully pimped out though - side bars, chrome, LEDs, silver door pins and loads of extras. I actually enjoyed doing the upgrades, Im not great at DIY but those little touches helped.

So I spotted this on FleeBay and thought Id try it out...worst case it comes and looks rubbish I just bin it.

I also had the VX mudflaps fitted.

Ive also ordered the VX sports metal pedals (pics later when they arrive).

I also bought FlexConnect table for the rear seats (beware - buy the table but you also need to buy the adapter for it to attach to - I got a massive discount as a new customer on this though - no way Im paying the full price, I just spent £ on their car haha).

Never been one for altering my cars from factory spec. I'll prob have the mudflaps and boot liner fitted and that'll be it. Maybe some better headlight bulbs at some point ?

Looks good, I'd never thought of protecting that although I lug suitcases in and put frequently which could scratch it.

Chrome pedal covers arrived... can't figure out how to get the accelerator cover on though lol (the other 2 were simple, just remove and replace the rubber fitting)

.... and the rear passenger flex connect table now fitted in.

So I finally got chance to add the chrome strip to the boot. Personally I think it adds definition between the rear boot door and the bumper which I like. There's a ridge at the bottom of the door and this is shaped perfectly to fit in it.

Yes I did, but I took it to the VX garage for them to do it. Thought it was cheeky of them not to fit them for me in the first place so one of the tech guys came and did his magic.

Its a nice touch upgrade for what I paid....and if you ever go to the parts counter at a VX garage be sure to tell them you have spent your life savings on their car so theyd best give you discount - I got a 20% discount on them too.
