    the oem cts-v grille is of better quality and will offer a better fit. the ebay one will definitely look cheap and wont fix exactly rightbut it will work and nail the look you're going for. So yea, if you absolutely want the new grille and you're on a tight budget, go for it. I did and so far I am pleased with how it's held up. I would highly recommend that you save up though and get yourself the original grille.

    The wire mesh is thicker on the OEM grill. The aftermarket mesh is thinner, and from what I hear will eventually rust.

    I purchased an Ebay grille and after trying to put it on, immediately sent it back, the fit was terrible, gaps were to large and holes for the fasteners were off. You truly get what you pay for.
