you have to mount your turn sigs behind the euro grill, the grill itself is super super easy to install, just 2 screws, look in the How-to archive, i believe there is a write up on how to place the sigs behind the grill. good luck and snap some pics!!!

i thought there were 4 screws.......maybe the Euro is different but my SVT Upper Grille and my Stocker all have 4 Screws....

You'll need a decently long extension

10mm Socket with a long extension and a philips screwdriver


Unscrew the plastic screws holding on the black plate, that will uncover the the 4 10mm bolts holhing on the grill (two metal top, two plastic bottom) just unscrew those and remove.


If you don have fogs then the bottom is just held on by two bolts on the corners, that easy. I dont kow about w/fogs

Yes if you get headlights with the turn signals in them you will be fine. Thats how they came in europe, and the reason the grill is signal less. Be prepared to cough up some dough, they range anywhere from 150-400 dollars. Check out european parts, I just placed an order there for new headlights.
