They were, but I thought I heard they started producing them again.

That last grille is a California special grille, that's what I got to replace my fogs. I removed the chrome grille insert and got it custom painted also. Good luck finding one of those grilles for the cost of a Saleen grille or less.

No need to be mad yours didn't ship, there are plenty of other people that have spent the same amount of money as you, being back ordered isn't really in anyone's control. Now if they have bad customer service then that's something to be mad about.

No, bumper does not have to be pulled to install the Saleen grille btw

I don't think you do need to take the bumper off, I just think its silly to buy something based on not removing the bumper. If its what you want go for it, but for silly reasons? Bleh.

Taking off the bumper is very easy, it took less than 20 mins on the 1st try by myself... The hardest part is finding a 2nd pair of hands to put it back on... Buttoning it back up is a snap, with the 2nd pair of hands helping support it
