    Re: Is there a difference in the $120 ebay v grills?

    i have a V grill i bought off ebay. Its still metal mesh but i had such a problem with the emblem mount. It wasnt in the right spot. and it took about 6 hours to take it off and get it back. we couldnt figure out how it was held on there either. we ended up blow-torching it off. bent some of the mesh and dis-colorled some too. then couldnt get it sauderd back on. the two metals were just so different. Im happy now but it took a lot of work and frustration. if i were to do it again i would buy OEM.



    (the crest is a little lower than it should be. but that was the best we could do..)

    With patience you can find a used OEM on eBay as I did for under $250.

    If you buy this one, you will also need to buy the crest/emblem for the V. It is chrome instead of satin and is larger. The smaller emblem from the stock grill won't work.

    Hey Kael, you going to the meet in Davenport in April?
