I never had trouble with the halfords Matt black, I used 1 can per bumper though.

The last time I used that bumper black stuff it went patchy the moment it rained! (on the way to standford back when i had the 899)
Maybe ill start trying to use it since there new they wont look so patchy when it rains and it could prevent rather then cover up :P

Yepp! £20 each, I did order radiator and thermostat at the same time so postage didn't really matter with the amount I saved on those bits!
