New CF Upper grill, what do you think?

Well, silviaparts has developed a new grill, not exactly like the first one w/o the H, but this one was produced in CF. It is real CF, not just a coating, so price would be around $125 shipped. Tell me what ya think, sooner i get back, the sooner he either revises the model to remove the H, or start production on this one.

Looks sweet, but I think remove the H it would looks better. If it stays make the H have the CF look also, or just black. Putting a silver emblem on it would ruin the look IMO. Peace

Is it for the sedan or coupe? I'm maybe down for one when we can get them if it's for a coupe.

No "H."

Here's my DIY version
.

I'd really like to see something unique that does not have the center "oval" at all.

I love it with the H in black chrome would look awesome. I like the fact that I have a Honda and it would look silly without an H IMO unless you did somethign creative with the space like that one guy said.

I wouldn't buy it because there isn't anything special about it except for the cf. Especially not at that price! I liked the previous design where the dip was almost filled without that H. They should use that design and enhance it more.

OK, heres what im tellin em. Make a couple models, both w/ no H. w/o the H there will be no center oval at all is my understanding. I'll see if they produce one in CF, and one in regular fiberglass. And this is for the sedan only, their original plan was for the asian version, so no coupe in the works as far as i know. The alternative would almost exactly like this, but would fit the US sedan.

Hey guys, we are the ones who are working on the grill, just need to get some quick opinions from you all.

Here is option 1 (exactly like the stock one but in CF):

You can paint your H logo black and stick it on there

Here is option 2, which I found on this forum, it's a DIY by someone:


Here is option 3, basically just cut the oval in the center part and leave everything else(this is a photoshop picture):


Please vote. And most importantly, would you actually buy it for $80 shipped (fiberglass) and $125 shipped (carbon fiber)

That won't fit the US model at all, so it's not an option.

Like the photoshoped version of (my ) car but the bottom of the oval area would need some kind of work...

I like this one 10 times better than option 1, 2, or 3. This one wil probably make the most amount of money because it is the most uniqe. It has no H and it doesn't have the dip.

I think AndysAutoSport made one similar to Option3.
