Installation Time: Afternoon

Honestly a painful install, but WORTH IT
I'll be completely honest - you wonder why this grille is so much cheaper than the others...well you get what you pay for. A pain to install, and I can't see anyone being able to install in 30 minutes. The lips for the screws come bent in different angles, so I had to take the pliers and straighten them out to fit. Then came the screws - getting them to fit through the holes in the lips and the provided locking nuts are a pain as well - I pretty much had to blindly guess as to where exactly the holes were when drilling through my grille frame. But I managed to do it after 3 hours. The grille itself is a beautiful gloss black - except for one small area in the corner that was missed (no idea why AM would even ship, having obviously seen this missed spot). But the grille is absolutely SOLID. I was worried that you'd see the factory lower grille, but you can't. With my Raxiom smoked halo fog lights (for the GT) peering from behind, it looks WICKED. Love the blacked out look. Seriously changed the whole look of the car.
