    Help me decide. Black, aluminum, or leave it alone. Appreciate your input.

    Well you could paint it, or order one pre-painted. I went ahead and got mine ready to install, color match is great.

    w/ the chrome bull bar, I'd vote for the chrome billet.

    Best-looking option (IMO): Get a black bullbar, get the black grill, and get the color-match grill surround.

    Also, make this a Poll thread. Go to "Thread Options" at the top and you'll see it.

    You can order it pre-painted direct from the dealer. I just did, should be able to pick it up tommorow for black sand pearl... cost 171 + tax. I'm not a fan of spray painting body panels, rims, or anything of that nature. If I'm doing it, I'm doing it right.

    I chose "leave it alone" only because you don't have the Satoshi grill listed ;-)...gotta love the throwback, nostalgic look...

    Paint it and get a black grille. Otherwise it wouldn't match and look weird.

    I like the Satoshi grill too but looking at a thread posted.... It seems like alot of work!

    Is there a place that I can mail the grill and get it done :)
