    Was going to get EG grille but..

    I was finally setting out to get an E&G grille. But didn't know you had to drill new holes for the thing. I didn't want to install it myself. And then worried if I had to put the stock one back on it won't fit anymore?

    I found a picture on car domain, and sort of liked the style of that 18 style grille.

    Is the owner of this car on here? How do they like the grille?

    This looks like a sport grille in 2D. Why not just get a sport grille?

    This one seemed to get my attention more with all the chrome.

    I planned on this grille plus the chrome halo headlights.

    I personally like that grille; for me it was either that or the sport pkg grill...I know E&G is a well known company, and where did you hear you had to drill holes into the car?

    Ya those rims don't make it look better, but that was the only picture of that grille.

    Under installation instructions, said you had to drill more holes.

    Probably into the grille itself so you can put the push-pins to go in...very simple, wont affect your car or any other grille if thats the case. CAn you send me the installation instructions and let you know for sure?

    They missed out big time with that car and all the places you could put chrome, what about the ever lovely stick on door handle covers or the chrome mirror covers, chrome side strips or the chrome wiper blades with down force spoilers to make it even more BLING BLING look at me I have chrome on my car and its made in china lol.
