I need opinions on fron grill color.

A> Paint the grill to silver(same as the car) and Black emblem(Already have black in the back)

B> Fill the emblem space and make the whole grill Black( no emblem in the front, just plain)

C> Same thing as B but paint it silver to match the car.


Here is a picture of my car, if someone can photoshop it. Thanks

EDIT: I will be tinting my tailights too.

i honestly think its fine the way it is.. if you HAVE to do somethin consider the mesh.
if thas not an option and you HAVE TO stick to one of the 3 options, i'd stick to all silver, no emblem. but not realli. i wud jus leave it.

shon,
since i have a silver coupe too, then my opinion is the only one that matters :p
i say black grille w no emblem
dont go the silver on silver route....too much silver no contrast. since u have the hid's w/ blackhousing contrast will look good :) if you were going the cleared lights w/ no blackhousing then the silver on silver look would pass.
but if you want my added 2 cents. i would go with a black grillcraft diamond mesh grill w/ no emblem w/ oem front lip :D :cool:

how are u planning on painting the grill? im in the same boat but w/ a NHB 7gen :)
my bodyshop color matched my grille NHB and it looks good. I have the chrome H but i think it would look better with gunmetal H.

all black - no emblem. i think that would look nice. where are the photoshoppers at?

shon ... what kind of lower grill do you have? i hope it's grillcraft because they look nice on our cars. i'd say remove that emblem "X-something" on the lower grill, too. also ... try removing the front license plate and see how long it takes for the law to catch it missing. :D

That emblem is gone, I was just board and put that. I have grill-tech but cant remove the license plate becuase of the hole in the bumper plus I still have out-of-state license(No time to change it)

I wanna keep that black & silver contrast that I have and I will remove the rear emblem too so I was leaning more towards all black no emblem.
Thanks for the help fellas


EDIT: I will get the OEM lip kit all around pretty soon.

in my opinion, leave the emblem, the grille opening was designed that way, if you remove it it looks like something is missing. I would never use diamond mesh, especially for the hole shape of our cars. The grille looks sick the way it is, don't change it!

I believe Drew had his painted silver and it looked good. I'd go with option A. I wouldn't paint it black. That would make the area look like a gaping hole, IMO. Nice car, BTW.

Oh how funny, I just asked almost the same question because my bumper just got smashed and the body shop told me they will go ahead and paintmatch whatever I wanted since there will be extra paint. I was thinking of paintmatching my fog lights as well.

in your case..you should stick with the way it is because of the cf hood.

I would leave it black. The silver and black contrast looks good. If you get a front lip it will pop out the look even more. As for the front plate. Please lose it. This is what you do. Put it in your trunk. Along with the bracket. If you get pulled over tell the cop that it was loose and only on by the bottom screw. Tell him that it would not stay on properly and that you have to get a larger screw to keep it on. You will be making a trip to Home Depot soon. They should let you go. If not and the cop gives you a ticket then you put the plate back on the front of your car and take a picture of it and take it to court and show the judge. Explain to him/her the same thing and show them the picture and tell them that it has been fixed and 9 1/2 times out of 10 they will dismiss it.
