    Cheapest OEM CTS-V Grille?

    This question has probably been asked a million times but my laziness along with the fact that a lot of the links I click on from older threads are invalid leads me to ask it again. I'm seeing $350 for the OEM Grille on GMpartsdirect which is obviously a safe play. Just wondering if there's a quick way to get a better price than that or if I'd just have to wait it out on ebay. Planning on buying the grille tonight or tomorrow so.

    Thanks in advance for your insight

    $350 is a decent price for a brand new V grill...I'd either nab that or take my chances on eBay, you'll be hard pressed to find a better deal than that for a new one.

    Thanks for your help. Ended up getting one off of ebay for 325. I'm guessing instillation is pretty easy and that I shouldn't pay much for it?

    The grill is easy to install .you can do it yourself with a basic hand tools in less than a hour
    Vs paying a body shop to do it save yourself some cash ...also a good time to tint the fog and daytime running lights if you desire

    See I've never done any work on my car but yea I'd love to tint both of those as well. Should I just look around for some instructions online on how to do everything?

    Yes I prefer using window tint for tinting flat lights like the fogs with the aid of a hair dryer and some patients it comes out nice there is also spray tint vht nightshades brand ...easy to apply plenty of YouTube videos

    Bumper removal is easy I'd type it out but this is more understandable as well as grill removal

    I put the entire bumper, passenger headlight, fender, and wheel liner together in about an hour and that included swapping fog housings from 1 bumper to another. Changing the grill should be real quick. Granted, everyone always run into a snag or some screw that won't come off... but I wouldn't pay anyone to do this job for you. Do it yourself. Its that easy.
