Jon,
:thumbsup: It should (look familiar), it was your pics that inspired me to have Specter hook me up with the black grills while the car was in getting a splitter and spoiler.

Imitation is flattery after all . . . right.

Onebad,
I do like your all black look too :drool:(and other mods), but specter was reluctant to paint that chromed plastic crap as it will chip . . . may consider later anyway; but then I would be wanting to smoke/darken the lights too ...
and I need to save some $$ for some performance mods someday.

As said in previous posts, that frame is craptastic, only surpassed by the peeling navigation buttons.

No offense, but I really don't like the black grills due to the fact it makes all the supports and wiring behind it painfully visible. The picture in Jon's sig looks good because it's taken from an angle, but when looking straight on you no longer see the grill, just the mess of junk behind it.

Different strokes.

It all depends on the lighting. With poor lighting you see all the crap behind it.

Then again, with the stock grille, with poor lighting it's too reflective and looks like a BBQ grille. :p

TTS,
Go ahead and admit it, you don't want to void your warranty by painting the grills.

Looks nice, but go deeper and black-out the frames...Why would you want to go and wreck it like that??
