This is it, not mine personally . But itís just the painted bit, not the Matt bit behind.
The painted part attaches with three screws hidden behind the panel

I bought a couple of painted ones for my old Catalano grey one last year. Cant remember the exact price but 140 does sound about right, and then of course you have the extortionate cost of the stickers on top of that if you want them too.

Personally I think the stickers look awful and they were the first thing I ripped off my new black bike as soon as I got it home from the dealership, looks a huge amount better without them.

Edit:
That's how my bike currently stands. Theres a couple more things to do to it before I put it back on the road but you can see how it looks without the stickers there.

I agree it looks better without the £40 bit of sticky paper on it

I have purchased the panel, painted storm black and it is £137
The sticker is £42
They are applying the sticker for me at the dealer as if I tried this it wouldnít be straight.
Not sure where you got £250 plus from ?

My logic:
you said the panel with the roundel in your 1st post(this is not painted, so I assumed you were actually referring to the painted panel that attaches to this). I looked at teh online parts fiche and here in the US they only had a price for the primed panel. So I guestimated how much they would charge to paint, my bad, but glad you got sorted.

No bother, I was a bit worried Iíd ordered the wrong bit!!
I think they only
Supply painted panels to current colour bikes, so now the grey, frozen blue etc arenít available painted , just primed
