Installation Time: Afternoon
April 09, 2013
Each person who has noticed the grille has said the same thing, "It looks aggressive." That works for me.
I was replacing a chrome honeycomb billet grille that was on the car when I bought it. Taking that off was the hardest part of the install, so if you're starting with a stock grille, you should have no problem at all.
The quality of the grille itself was better than expected, but the install hardware could use a definite upgrade. I actually hit the hardware store to replace it myself. Also, be careful to not damage the coating on the grille while tightening the screws.
A lot of people have discussed grinding down the surrounding plastic molding after removing the emblem, I decided I wanted to do as little damage as possible, so I opted to leave it as is and it fit fine. Speaking of removing the emblem, good luck not breaking the retaining clips on the back. I think I was 1 for 4 on those, keeping in mind the main goal of not breaking the emblem itself.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the outcome of this mod and I'm glad I went with the upper and lower combo to complete the look.
