OK, If you are wondering what this product is, then you will need to know that the basic idea is, you take off your old grille, (Ciao spells it without the "e") remove the horizontal bars, or plastic chip cutter blades, and turn it into something that pleases your eyes, although perhaps not one that pleases the rest of us.

This mesh comes in only one size, 20 centimetres x 120. I've seen these grilles made to look very good, however, I have also seen some very ameteur attempts, reminiscent of "Blue Peter". If you however do want your car to have a "mean" look, or even just something out of the ordinary, give this firm a look.

The company Race X, has a lot of history, they have been on the go for a while now, and they are beginning to get a good name. The company sells quite an extensive range of styling equipment, that the (mainly) young fraternity require for making their motors look "Kewl", and while some of these items actually look pretty good, they aren't really what I call improvements. Having said that, when it comes to the looks of these items, they do have quite a good range, and the quality of the equipment does seem very good, I sometimes wonder though, if they are getting their priorities wrong.

Browsing through the catalogue, you will find 300 plus styling items for sale, including metallic red or blue aluminium pedal pads, titanium look gear knobs with rather natty leather gaiters, there are also practical items,like locking wheel nuts etc. They also sell the usual array of tax disc holders & "go faster" rubber mats, plus of course the usual range of "special" cone filters.

OK, this review is about black grill mesh, and this particular company stocks a lot of it, available in four different colours. They do Silver, Blue, a rather good looking Chrome, and of course the black which is the subject of this particular review. The quality of the material is very good, and it seems to last well without losing it's colour, or peeling.

Right, now for the cost - to be perfectly honest - I found that the prices are a bit on the steep side, or perhaps I am just biased because I prefer the original stuff the car makers fitted.

Where to buy from - All major motor accessory shops stock these, especially the chain of A1 Motor Stores (see their website www.a1motorstores.co.uk).
These are also available by mail order.

The Racex website is simply http://www.racex.com. Have a look sometime. There are some good bits for sale, but a lot of the site is still not up & running.
