Hi all, I have been researching "Splitter" options for my 2011 Plus 4, doing away with the Over Riders, having a splitter and twin 5" spots for a more 'Competition Look' to the front. It looks like it is either the one offered by Williams or Wolfe - Any thoughts most welcome.
Also, any suggestions for a supplier for the wing sidelights which Morgan stopped fitting as standard, although personally I like the look!!
John

Holden Vintage and Classic stock a variety of Lucas type wing sidelights. Also S-V-C who are now based just outside Malvern.

I went wolf on my last plus eight.

Launched the bumpers and fitted a pair of Cibie oscars. Gives the car a much tougher look

I’ve just ordered another tray from Wolf to fit to my latest

Can’t work out the complex picture posting sequence unfortunately

Thanks Viper, Can you recall which splitter you went for and how much? Also, did the Cibie Oscars not make the front a bit congested?
Cheers,
john

It looked good I though.

Look at Wolf gallery and mine was the dark blue one.

Hi Craig, your car looks stunning!!! Really like the colour, same as my newly acquired plus 4! I do like the look of the Williams splitter and I can bin the over riders but retain the number plate box and badge bar as I understand.
How much did it cost to have it painted and did you fit it yourself?
Cheers,
John

Williams also painted it and fitted it. From memory I think it was about £400 all in ....

I agree Craig's car look stunning, but if you want to retain the overriders (which is I would have done, I like the look of them) Cain Poulton of Wolf Performance has a valance that permits this. To my taste, no overriders makes the front a little naked. Wolf also has valances that goes on without the overriders if you wish. Worth checking out.

And also, I think the Oscars are a bit too big, a little disproportional. A spot of aprox. 5" looks good to me. Cibie Tango would be nice, they can be found on E-bay - though mainly in yellow. The classic Lucas is another option. With overriders there is not much space for a spot (certainly not an Oscar), though - so that might be a reason for you to get rid of them. My choice would have been valance, overriders and a 6 or preferrable 5" spot, as seen here: https://www.librands.co.uk/products-view-62.html
