Ebay Grilles

I'm thinking about purchasing one of these cheap grilles I found on ebay. Does anybody have any experience with these?

Probably fine, I've seen them around from time to time, never liked the look myself though.

I'd have to agree with Steve. I've seen them a few times and they look like they are constructed fine. Myself, I don't care too much for the flush look of the grille, but to each his own. I know the auction says they come in black but I'm willing to bet its the raw ABS plastic without any paint on it all. Just an FYI is all.

Good luck, man, and when/if you get one post up your honest review of it because I know you can't be the only one looking to get one.

Yep. I have one on my R/T. It looks and fits great. And it seems to be made of quality plastic (such as the stock grille).

Differences:
-Not OEM
-Only has 4 main clips to attach to paneling (does not have smaller clips that go into grille insert, then paneling because now you have no insert) Still is very solid...
-The look of your car obviously

I just got an OEM honeycomb grill and it snapped in. Took about an hour with all the messing around with the two outside screws. I didn't take the nose of the car off, just the grill.

Here's the one I got. Dropped right into my '07

Similar to the one I ordered, OEM make, have to pick it up from the border still.
