Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at two classic grille options for your S197, thanks to Modern Billet™’s upper and lower Billet grilles, available for 05-09 V6 Mustangs, in your choice of either black or polished. As you may have guessed from the name, Modern Billet™ is a company that specializes in making a number of different styling accessories for your Mustang using nothing but quality T6 aircraft grade Billet aluminum. Both of these grille options were designed to do one thing, give the front end of your V6 a totally unique look, by introducing some of that retro vibe, which typically comes along with using a Billet grille. You have two options when it comes to the finish, first up we have the polished option which is here on the table, which will give you a little more of that classic vibe. On the other hand you can go with a black option shown back there on our 2000 V6, which is a little bit more subtle yet still looks awesome. Both the upper and lower grille are constructed using only 100% quality Billet aluminum. One of the biggest features with the upper grille is that it does retain the factory running Pony emblem, thanks to that perfect cutout. That lower grille compliments the upper grille perfectly and really helps complete the look when installed. Speaking of installation, getting both grilles installed is a breeze thanks to the fact that the upper and lower grilles utilize an overlay design. Because of this, getting both grilles installed should only take you 30 minutes apiece. Of course upper and lower grille options are available separately, however if you purchase both at the same time, you’ll not only achieve a much more dramatic look, but you’ll also save yourself a few bucks in the process. So if you’re searching for a way to change the front end of your V6, and you dig the unique look of a Billet grille, then be sure to check out one of these two options from Modern Billet™ available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Easy install. Fitment was no problem. Hardest part of install was getting old grille pieces out. Tabs can be a bit difficult to release. Grille looks great and appears to be very durable. Finish was perfect. Great workmanship. Highly recommend. inexpensive mod and beautiful results.Helpful (13)

Absolutely love it!
My new black grille looks amazing on my red pony. The only thing I disliked were the bolts that came with the package. I had to buy separate stronger bolts. But other than that, I love it.Helpful (9)

Good Look Bad Fit
Found instructions vague and not helpful. Seemed to be hard with bumped on to install lower grille as visibility and hand reach was an issue. Upper Grille was a breeze and was on in less than a half hour but this one took time and the fitment is sub par.Helpful (11)

This grill changed the lame honey comb grill of my mustang into something awesome. My only problem with it is that the J-hooks have no business being part of the installation kit, because they honestly do not fit anywhere. Other than that, Great product, looks awesome!Helpful (10)
Hi, can I buy the hardware to install the lower grille separately? Two fell off and need to be drilled again, Thanks
We do not sell the hardware for this separately.
Will this grille fit a 2008 V6 with the Roush Front Fascia Kit?
This grille will no longer work once you install that fascia kit as that fascia changes the dimensions of the grille that would fit in your V6. As far as your grille is concerned, you officially have a GT front end with that Roush Front Fascia, so a GT grill would do the trick.
Why does this not fit the pony package?
The Modern Billet Black Billet Grille is designed to bolt to the OEM grille. The Pony Package grille is unable to accept this grille.
Is there another part/grille that needs to be installed prior to installing this grill if my current Mustang has the Pony Package Billet Grille?
Hello! The Modern Billet Black Billet Grille would not work with a Pony Package Grille.
Can I still use this if I don't have a stock grille on the bottom to begin with? Bought car without a stock bottom grille. I know they use an overlay method for easy install but can I still put this on somehow?
Unfortunately you will need to have a stock lower grill in order to install the Modern Billet Black Billet Grille (05-09 V6).
The lower grille is actually an overlay to the stock grille. If you don't have one, you'd also need to purchase the replacement to install this one on top. I've attached the link below. Hope this helps!
Unfortunately this billet grille is not compatible with the V6 Pony Package Mustang. It's an overlay style grille, not a full replacement.
If you installed a GT bumper on your V6, you would need to purchase a GT grille as well. We carry many options for the GT; however, we don't have one with just the pony cutout and no fog lights. If you wanted a black upper billet grille without fog lights, we have the Retro Style that eliminates the pony and the fog lights which I've attached below.
