Not trying to bash the OP.. cuz everyone sells these things for a stupid amount. Lol.

I guess I just don't get the hype.
FYI, about a decade ago when these grilles were available new they sold for more than $100 (plus shipping from Europe to the US), and nobody considered it a ripoff then.

I guess you have never seen one in person, or held one in your hands? It's no normal grille. It's a very solid piece, it's made from quality metal unlike the cheap-o ebay knockoffs. It looks great and fits better than a stock grille.

And to top it all off, there are not many in the US....and they're pretty rare worldwide as well.

Agreed, these are no normal grill and they are worth every penny! I paid $450 for mine, and had to re-powder coat it.

These are the best fitting grill, and you will prolly never see two in person at the same event!

Nope, never seen one in person or held one. But still.. it could be made out of pure diamonds.. it's still just a grille to me. And not worth $4-500.

Like I said, I just don't understand the hype I guess.

Lmao. Yeah. I'm so mad bro cuz I can't afford a $450 grille. Werd. Ya got meh, dawg.

First off, I could afford it. Thanks. Secondly, I would never pay that much for a grille. And 3rd, you need to re read the definition of hater. Just because someone doesn't agree with you doesn't make them a hater.

As I've stated twice now.. I just don't get the hype. Yeah, they're rare. Yeah, the fit well. As if stock grilles don't fit or something. All I'm saying is, for $500.. you could buy something that would be way more worth it.

To each his own, though. And congrats on the sale.

well quality might be different then German made so that is why it is 450 lol
and usually those no name brands they have only bottom fixtures to bolt on
so I found that this is a slight different personally when I'll buy a svt I will look for one of this hofele German made
