Billet Grill!

I FINALLY installed my billet grille from AM. I absolutely love it. Cant wait to tint the fog lights though (had some issues, I guess I shoulda stuck with AM, they've never done me wrong) I've had my eye on this grille ever since it came out. Makes the car look super sharp.

Yes, I love the grill. Thats the one i want. I would paint the fog light inserts on the bottom a shade darker to match the grill. Nice looking car....

Well I would've ordered the tint from AM, but its pretty expensive so I tried another place, and the tint was cut to fit the lights when they are in their original grille. It wasn't a solid circle. So I'm in the process of sending it back and finding another alternative.

I would keep those light tints cuz when i installed the grille i found out the lights are round so mine kinda get cut off at the top. But I just ordered new ones for it. And they are extremely hard to but on when the factory grille is on. If you do get this grille wait to but on the lights when you have the factory grille out.

I intended to do this while installing the grille, but I got screwed. But I can just pull the grille out and install them when I decide to order. I can't keep this tint if its not gonna cover the whole light, that's unacceptable. All you have to do is yank the grille really hard and it will come out, you shouldn't try to install while its in.

It wasn't so bad. We didn't take the bumper off, so that cut down on time. It only took us about 1 1/2 hours.

Thats cool that you didn't take off the bumper. I did it though and only took me less then 2 hours to install mine with the bumper taken off

The whole grille pops out. We just attached it to the outer sorrounding and popped it back in. U just have to make sure u mount it in there just right or it won't fit over the fog lights.
