Euro grill with stock lower grill?

Going to be installing some ST170s soon, and I'd like a grill to delete the turn signals. I know Sascha sells a straight-bar grill that matches my lower grill, but I doubt it would ship fast enough. It looks like my other option is the diamond-pattern euro grill, in small diamonds and large. But I'm worried how that would look with the stock lower grill (I don't really feel like replacing it, since thats another $40).

Does anyone have a picture of this setup? Do either of those grills look okay with the stock lower grill?

Thanks

If you're real OCD it may drive you a tad crazy, but I've been running it for a whiiiile. It bugs me a little every now & then, but I have a Euro bumper so no sense in buying a lower grille temporarily for my stock bumper.

If you really want the Ghia (right?) then couldn't you just drive with your stock grille until the one from Sascha comes in? Just not have the lights hooked up.

That doesn't look bad at all. Although I am pretty OCD when it comes to my focus so I'd end up dropping another $40 anyway. But I certainly wouldn't hold it against you if you only had 1/2 grilles that were Euro.

PS Amanda, I haven't seen pictures of your ride before, that is HOT.

Thanks, I really need new pics, these are from Summer 05!

You're right, $40 isn't terrible, but then I'd have to install it... and I'm just damn lazy sometimes!
