is a euro grill a euro grill?

Looking at the Euro grill at McNew's - is it going to be the same as what other stores call a Euro grill? I'm looking for my SVT - thinking about the upper and lower together - anyone got pics of these on an SVT? Would be curious to see what it looks like. Also, I'm under the asumption from reading around here that installation is no big deal - any one know of any trouble spots? I have HIDs so don't have to worry about turn signals.... Just how does the lower grill come off anyway?

Thanks all, K

I dont which grill you are talking about, i know there are atleast 2 different styles. Install is a breeze. 4 bolts hold the factory one on and the euro one uses the 2 lower bolts and clips at the top, i believe a 10mm socket is what it takes, should take about 5 min to swap. The lower one is alittle trickier, IIRC there are some screws on the back side that need removed and it is clipped in. I personally think a euro grill is one of the best mods you can do to help clean up the front appearance of the car, and becuase you have the HID's, you wont need to hide the turn sigs behind the grill like i did. I say go for it.

Yes, they are the same as other Euro grille's only difference is you don't have to pay out the butt for shipping them over here.

The lower euro grille will not work on a SVT. Hillyard got one to work on his so shoot him a PM to see how he did it.
