I have the factory fitted kit and side rails, don't see many in the UK with that kit fitted (I haven't seen any yet) hence why I bought the ex demo breaks up the bumper better IMHO.

On what elements do these protections mount on? I am hoping that they are not screwed into plastics if they are metal-made..

This doesn't fit the r line though only non r line models.

I have these on mine. They look great, don't look like an add on. Fit is perfect, although if you have rear mudguards fitted you will need to trim them slightly with a sharp knife. As you say, lots of drilling holes and plastic push rivets!

If I didn't add the Hitch, I was going to put the rear one on. hear it looks pretty bad if you cut the hole out for the hitch..

looks good man!

It has a panel that comes out for tow bars so no cutting required.

Darn, another thing to add to my list now, if I can find the rear only, I see many for pre 2012 but I assume because of the front bumper change. I don't think the rear lower valance changed during the facelift on non R Line.. It would really look good since the front already has the silver fake crash guard look..it looks really good N4S, I am also debating on the LED conversion for the reflector strips while I am running wires.. tie them into the Marker Lights..

the US/Canada version does not have the panel. It requires cutting for us Yanks and Canucks

Thank goodness at least they gave us the outline to cut stamped in the bumper as a guide. :roll:

Thanks Shaun170, yes i cut out just enough of the marked area to install my hitch. the panel would of been nice..be interesting to see how it looks with the hitch fitted.. I went with the Curt Class 3 2" hitch.
