New Euro Grille BEWARE!!!

I just got my new euro grille in the mail today. i got it off ebay and thinking that since i paid 100 bucks for it that this would be a high quality piece and it would fit like OEM style. I WAS WRONG!!!
Turns out this thing was the biggest piece of garbage i have ever bought for my car. if you see them for sale from c-mod2007 on ebay do not buy it! it was made of cheap mesh grille material and flimsy fiberglass that did not have holes in it for mounting. the 4 tabs that secure the grille were so flimsy i was afraid i would break them if i even touched them. the 2 top tabs were completely off and i ended up cutting them off but the bottom 2 seemed to be fine. i go to line up the grille and what do you know. the spot behind the "ford" emblem is interfering with the grille and it will not allow the grille to be mounted so i had to end up taking a jig saw and cutting it off. the plastic piece that sits on the top of the grille saying how much ac the car takes and whatnot also interferes with the 2 top tabs which is why i cut them off. so i drill the two holes to get the grille to be secured in someway. i place it up to the car and the thing i had to jig saw off looked like crap. so i removed the ford emblem from the old grille and put it on the new one infront of the ugly looking thing so that problem was solved.[bootyshak

putting everything back together it dosent look half bad i actually like the way it looks i just hope it holds up and i wish i didnt have to go through all that trouble to get it on. the guy got - feedback lol
after the 20 min install i got a chance to take a few pics here they are

You gonna change the bottom grille aswell? I think I like the top one, but it looks weird with the lower one stock.
