yeah there is a removeable emblem on the lower right corner of the center grille, none for the sides if you got those. If it didn't come with one then you wouldn't want one. Do you? I took mine off, looks cleaner.

For those that have the grillcraft, how well made and thick is the mesh-material. I bought some metal gutter guard from Home Depot sprayed it black and I am thinking of cutting it and doing a diy install instead of dropping over $100. I am just not sure if the grillcraft is a thicker or thinner material and which one will be a better choice.

It's a high quality, thick grill. The Grillcraft is a better choice because it fits perfectly as well as it being hi-quality. But if you're good with DIY ... nothing wrong with going that route. I believe there are a few who have gone the DIY route and it turned out pretty good.

you just have to be patient...the 06 has only been out for a minute and that is the downside of wanting to mod a new car....having to wait for parts...we all had to do it with our 03-05 and they finally have parts...i'm sure they will have something sooner or later

-i popped my grillcraft logo off immediately too- much better looking.

-yes there is drilling required and thought you dont HAVE to take out the stock grills, it looks better if you do. which i did.

-i have a friend that tried to do the home depot mesh dealie on his 7gen and after about 2 hours of messing with it he gave up and bought the same grillcraft kit i have. yes, its expensive, but its worth the cash IMO. its very high quality.

thanks~
i cut the plastic stock "grill" as close as i could with a heavy duty clipper just to get them out of there. then i used a razorblade to shave down the edges of the plastic so its just the outside lining of that original piece. it destroys your old one, but looks a lot better. if you keep it on and put on the grillcraft over it you can still see it behind the mesh grill so it looks cluttered.

the directions they give you are spot on, but they have you put the grill over the stock one. in pic #22 of the directions is even tells you you can remove the old one and can tell it'd look a little better.

thanks for the tip. i cut out my "stock grill" with hedge clippers but i was too lazy to file down the rough ends. still...it looks a lot better than with the stock grill.

haha- i def did the same thing. that plastic is pretty tough and they were perfect for the job. i just couldnt get close enough to the outside so i used the blade.
