is it possible to change the E&G (i believe thats it) mesh grill back to the polished optional OEM grill? The guy at the dealer said that they trim the bumper for the mesh grill and it wont hold the standard oem one anymore? True?

I performed the installation of the E&G mesh grill on my wife's SRX by removing the front bumper cover (fascia) and did not cut or trim any of the tabs. I would be able to replace the factory grill on her SRX, if I was so inclined. E&G installation instructions state that the front bumper cover does not need to be removed, but without removal it almost certainly would require that the side tabs be cut (as suggested in the instructions). It just depends on who performed the installation and whether the plastic tabs were cut, or not. Of course you could always get a new bumper cover.
