    Ive been researching different ways to replace my chrome grille surround with a super white one. Did the "wtb" thing, etc. Ive searched and read through the different threads with people talking about just getting it from the dealer, trading, ebay, etc. Figured I would round it all up and look for more suggestions.

    Id like to replace my chrome with a super white grille surround (which then I will probably either go Satoshi or more likely black grillcraft.)
    Does anyone have any good suggestions for how to locate a new replacement that is painted and ready to go?

    Many thanks!

    Dealer. They are pricey however. Perhaps one of those dealerships that have a parts website. They tend to be a tad lower than the actual brick & morter.

    :thumbsup:, then CL your chrome one for $100 and your only out $100 for the color matched one, which is just about the price you would pay to have your chrome one sprayed...

    Stock for now
    Since the Impulse Red Pearl is not available color matched, I bought a base grill here and am having a friend's shop spray for me. If I could have bought it color matched, there is a $175 deal shipped.

    The TRDParts is about $250 shipped (212 before shipping). Am I missing something? I keep reading people talk about under $200 shipped but cant seem to find that anywhere...
