Default V8 front bumper "spats"

I have noticed on v8's fitted with a premium front bumper two black spats underneath the bumper , one either side , maybe to direct air to the brakes ?
I have a premium bumper on my 1.8t but there are no spats on the bottom bumper trim. Was this only fitted on v8's ?? I would like to replicate some , could anyone supply some measurements, overall length , distance from bumper edges, depth ?? Or even trace around them if I pay some postage ? Any help would be much appreciated

My V8 has those spats and I’m round the corner to you if you want to come round and measure up, and I do not have the premium grill either.

They’re not spats Matthew it’s actually a one piece plastic screws the the bottom of the bumper and goes the whole width. Only the V8 has it and they’re not available now

You will not get one unless you find a car being broken.

There are 1 or new brand new ones about, but the people that have them will never sell them.

Far easier to make one up yourself with the correct plastic/rubber sheet I would have thought.

I have a spare too, but will never sell.
