I got this grill and it fits well, looks good, and have had no problems . . . I got it because i took off my front license plate holder and it looked bad with this big black hole in the bumper, so i got the grill . . . i haven't heard anything bad, just good comments on how it looks

well if the seller had actual photos, instead of HORRIBLY photochopped pics it might increase confidence that the product isn't scrud.

yeah, it would be nice to have the matching side peices, but the seller wouldn't cut the holes for the lights . . . after i got it it may have looked wierd cuz the material is about 1/4" thick so the lights would have been pretty recessed.

as for painting it black, i tested a couple of colors on the two side pieces that i had left over (one i painted black and the other very similar to the color of the regular grill piece around the front emblem) both looked tight in ur hand, but you could really see them in the slot cuz they were too dark. The horizontal stripes disappear down there. I wanted to get rid of that big black hole in my bumper cover so the regular look is more of what i wanted. but to each his own . . .

i normally dont like it, but it looks good on that car. i like the side peices the way it is since it's dark like the headlights and the fogs in them give it a good contrast along with the billet grille. i think i like it mainly because it gives an aggressive look.. almost like it's got an intercooler.

Actually doesn't look half bad. Was it pretty easy to install?

I like it, but $100 good? I dont think so. Never got why billet grills were so much.

yes, because it's only on there with some zip ties (ghetto, i know) and i did it when i was installing the projection lights so my bumper cover was already off the car. you have to tighten the zip ties behind the grill or else they will show through.

as for the $100 . . . i think we've all wasted a lot of moeny on our cars, what's another bill . . . LOL
