wow its only 578 + 75 shipping??? with all the pieces i need and its guaranteed fitment! sweet..
so that company(octane motorsports) trustworthy even if i wanted to buy an aftermarket fiberglass srt8 hood from them? im sorry if im asking but its because i heard many aftermarket products dont fit and they have problems

and what all do you have to buy? all i had to buy was the fascia, mesh, shipping, and paint. you can even add fogs to the list and its still only 5 things actually paid for

heres what i was talking about:
Here's the info regarding the fascia alone.
pn: 4854674AA "Cover, Front End"
pn: 5029908AC "Shield, Engine Lower"
pn: 4806184AA "Closure, Front Bumper LT" (Fog Lamp Bezel in parts guide)
pn: 4806184AA "Closure, Front Bumper RT" (Fog Lamp Bezel in parts guide)
pn: 5030147AA "Duct, Air Intake LT"
pn: 5030146AA "Duct, Air Intake RT"
pn: 5030243AA "Grille Assembly"

thats what a buddy of mine said. but i see on OM website it fits perfect on v6.. so.. idk what hes talking about. it said 40$ for the mesh grill. is that inscluding both mesh grills for the top and bottom?

i have an se and it fit perfect and the body shop said it was in the best condition of any aftermarket. the mesh if i remember right comes in one big sheet and it works for botih upper and lower grille. as for the fogs, i still have the same stupid black cap things in mine. they just kinda snap in. unless a ton of stuff was damaged in the accident most of it is just plug and play no extras needed

i just came across something
if insurance was to give me money for both a new sxt oem bumper and grill wont i pretty much even out with just a GT bumper? GT bumper pretty much doesnt have a grill. so im not going to have to pay no diff ;) ill deff send you pics of it. hopefully this body shop can order from octane motorsports

kinda. you still need the grille or else your radiator wont really be protected. but you are correct you should break even. the oem bumper will cost more than the aftermarket grip tuning bumper so there shouldnt be a whole of difference to pay if any. i can tell you that my body shop had a direct account with octane motorsports so if i wanted to they couldve done all the ordering for me (i didnt know this until it was too late but oh well)

good luck bro and i cant wait to see it. i love white cars and there isnt many with a grip fascia so im def excited haha

yes. you cannot run the fascia without the mesh. if you do you risk damage to the engine or any of its components besides if insurance is footin the bill why chance it
