    Billet is the grille in my sig pic. Satoshi grills are a mesh, that are recessed back into the grill surround, as opposed to flush, as mine is.

    A Satoshi is recessed or frenched and takes some cutting and fab. As far as I know most billet grilles are a bolt on.

    billet is the grill with the lines going across and it sits flush in front, not recessed like the satoshi

    Satoshi is more original and much better looking IMO. Harder to make but you feel great after. If you want to see an awesome satoshi check out a member on here named "RAD"

    Edit: Homertaco makes satoshis by order, saves the hassle of having to make it, runs about $200 though.

    Biggest difference is that the Satoshi looks BADASS,

    The Billet, meh, everybody has one.
