I was at the dealer this morning for an oil change, saw these on the lot. This is the glacier blue metallic color:

99404

The there were two black V sedans, Identical except one had the standard chrome grille, and the other had the new optional black grille.

Chrome:

99405

Black:

99406


Here's an animated gif I made that swaps them back and forth:

99407

I think it's around $700. If you want a black grille, just buy a $5 can of PlastiDip.

MSRP is $870. I know because I was thinking about adding it to my V wagon build.

Was thinking the same thing. Do you have to remove the grill to plastidip it? I'm going to leave the chrome trim portion and only blacken the grill

nm looks like you can do it as long as you remove the top plastic and cardboard the back

judging from what other people say though, the plastidip doesn't hold up over the long term and you will have to re-apply.

I just don't get it. remove the damn front fascia.

Don't bother masking off the emblem.

You're going to take longer than I would removing the fascia and do a worse job than I can trying to tape it off and cardboard the back.

This is one of the easiest fascia pulls I've ever done

It's litertally 2 10mm bolts underneath the fender liners, ~ 12 plastic push rivets for the air dam, 2 10mm bolts up top and 2 more plastic rivets.
Disconnect the fog lamp plugs, and let the wiper washer fluid.

I would prefer the black chrome over plastidip. Due to the Black chrome rims I have. Would love to find a PVD supplier to do my stock grill in black chrome.
