    I found a place to get painted grills for $105. That's good right. He said if I get 5 are more he will do it for $85 or $80.

    OEM grilles have a list price of $264.
    Discounted at $194.
    I know because I bought one today.
    $85 for a new OEM grille sounds fishy or hot.

    It was at Keystone automotive, aftermarket parts. One of my customers pulled it up for me. I did not have the $ but I will get it soon. He said most of the bodyshops get their parts from them. He gave me a catalog and I saw it on his computer. The 85 was for 5 or more. I'll go back ASAP and see if it is to good to be true.

    It seems some parts are good and some aren't as good.
    It's a roll of the dice.
    I like true OEM body replacement parts but that's me.:)

    im sure if its an aftermarket grille surround it will be fine as far as quality is concerned. plastic is plastic. I prefer OEM too but for $85 i could live with an aftermarket one.

    Let us know what else you find. If its truly $85 then im in as i will be attempting the RGM soon.
