    i looked at it long and hard, but couldn't pull the trigger on getting it. i'll prob end up getting a color matched grill afterall for a few more bucks.

    how much is this grille going for? It might be worth the risk if not to expensive. Though i am kinda scared because of the foam piece they added to the top, might mean it rubs more than the stock one.

    It is plastic and it replaces the whole grill assembly.

    The price for the black which you will have to paint and clear coat is going for $109. That is not a bad price.
