    No idea. Looks... normal?
    Which is the point I guess.

    I'll guess real for the sake of argument.

    And that's completely reasonable. I think the OEM ones were $490 and aftermarket grille cost me $111 when I bought.

    I think I'll start a new thread, call it fake or real. This would include any knock off Toyota part.

    What do I need to put a TRD Pro grille on my 18 OR with TSS? I’d rather not mess up the sensors because I like having the collision assist and adaptive cruise control active. I see some grilles on eBay for $90, are these fine? And what do I need for the garnish to keep TSS working? Not sure about any of this. https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/253956515456

    First, regarding the quality of the eBay grilles, most people I have heard talk about them say that the eBay grilles are fine. I had a really bad experience with mine though. I spent about $100 and only got the grille with no letters. I had purchased from one of those sellers claiming to be from California, but when I reached out asking about the letters they told me they were out of stock and I would need to wait 1-2 months for shipment from China. I ended up spending about 3 weeks returning the item and waiting to get my money back. Then I spent $170 to buy one on Amazon and got much better quality and 2 day delivery. I think I just had an unusually bad experience, but to me it was worth the extra $70.

    You can absolutely put on the TRD pro grille that you have listed and keep TSS working. What you need is a TSS garnish cover, like this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/362286887141
