    Since both require removal of the stock grill I'd think it'd be possible to swap between the 2.

    Only thing about doing a satoshi with a billet would be the curve that the billet grill has, you'd probably need to cut the plastic to make it fit flush.

    I say recess your billet like a satoshi grille. IMO i think it looks good and not very many people have done it.

    Some billet grilles just attaches over the stock with no cutting, like mine. Tightened it so the grill edges will sit flush with the stock surround.

    Ever consider painting the chrome grill surround black along with BHLM ? Then either a black Billet or satoshi grill to complete the look.
