A family friend backed into my V last weekend and now I need a new bumper cover and grill. I'm trying to save them as much money as possible and I was wondering if anyone has purchased the ebay grill? They look legit, and they are probably made by the same people who make the ones you get from GM.

Anyone have any experience with these? The place has great feedback, and they sell all kinds of car crap. I did notice they don't have the emblem, but I can probably swap that over, maybe not?

Thanks guys!

Go check with the guys in the CTS forum. A lot of them have gone this route and been very sorry they did.

I am pretty sure that not only do the grills not last, but also the front emblem doesn't fit right.

I have not personally bought one for my personal vehicle but I have purchased a am grille of similar design for a customers vehicle. The emblem did not fit quite right but the finish was pretty good quality. It is one of those, you get what you pay for, type of things from what I have seen. If there are any used ones that are not to pitted, I would recommend that route first

Also check with Luke @ Lindsay to see what rock bottom GM costs are.
