Just bought it yesterday. Its a silver R/T. Having come from driving a 95 Impala SS, I am REALLLY impressed with the charger. One thing that I am curious about. I called my dealership where I bought the car and asked him to order the R/T badge for the grill, and he told me that the only way to do that is to order the whole grille again. Is this true? And if it is true, how hard is it to change the grill?

The problem with the badge (the one I got fom LeeParts.com, anyway) is that the back is fitted to clip onto the honeycomb insert. This badge would NOT have properly clipped onto the standard R/T "Horizontal line" insert. So you dont need to buy a new grill, but you will need the honeycomb inserts. Contact LeeParts.com, they are very helpful. Ask if they make one for the stock grill. To my knowledge, they do not.

when i ordered my r/t emblem from leeparts.com they had two r/t badges on there. one said it had a 3m sticker backing, the other one was a screw on. i need to go take a look again.

My final suggestion would be to contact LeeParts (they are very helpful). Ask them which badge you would need for your STOCK "Horizontal line" grill inserts. If they still offer the sticky-backed one, you might need that one.

I never saw a screw-on one. Mine is simply a clip that fits into the honeycomb grill and snaps into place.

Godaddy,

Did you ever get the clip-on emblem to work on the stock (horizontal) grille? I was thinking about doing the same thing (actually just sent an email to leeparts asking about it before I came across this thread). Also going to get the rear-lid emblem (which I assume is the 3M tape version).

If you have the horizontal grill inserts, I beleive the R/T clip will require some modification.
