Anybody have these? (Front Grille)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/280716517229...S:1123&vxp=mtr

Just saw these on Ebay and I actually kind of like how they work with the grill and they eliminate the not so appealing orange turn signal. Though I have been talking to the seller and they are not LED and I guess they still use the factory bulb.

I am still unclear, anyone have them? Like them?

Thanks

Since you have an svt, you should just keep the SVT grille in the car now. or get a set of mach headlights, and get a euro grille. that grille is the same design as the 00-04 non-svt models

I have that grill on my SE, if your set on getting one look around more i think i found mine on ebay for like $29 shipped.

Anyways the standard focus grill features horzontal bars, the svt grill is of a honeycomb desgin. There is NO SVT style grill made with clear lenses, No one ever made one. So if you decide to buy that grill, your upper and lower grill WILL NOT MATCH. Also the standard grill have the lenses behind the grill, where the svt is intregrated with the grill. Among most here in the forum the SVT grill is much more desirable.

Ok, Thanks for the Reply's. I didn't even think about the honeycomb. Damn, why can't anyone make a clear lens!

If whoever made those grills had a clue they would've made a killing if they offered a clear SVT one. It's a little late in the game to make one now.

Late is an understatement ... they should be focusing on the newer models as well.

But I bet the parts are cheaper to manufacture for older rides.
