They were regularly stolen because both the
front and rear bumpers were simply held on by two bolts, and because originals
were over £1000.00 each. However now that the XJ40 is considerably older, and
has now been replaced twice, original bumpers are not quite so in demand, and
the type of customers wanting these bodykits has changed. They are an ideal
modification, to make the car look more expensive, more upmarket and more
modern. Many car dealers purchase these to improve older cars.
Many people also now purchase them because
good quality chrome bumpers are becoming hard to find.
Now that the '40 is much cheaper to buy we are
selling more of these kits, since more '40's are getting modified. This is
helped by the number of magazine features on these cars, and the superb value
for money that they represent.
