I'm a fan of the '98 euro grill. It's all personal opinion though.

which one would I buy if I wanted the grill without the indicator lights and without a ford emblem in the middle (or a removable emblem)? And i'm not talking about that cheap ebay one either. Does the RS's emblem come off?

The emblem on the RS grille is part of the whole thing, so it doesn't come off.
If you wanted one without an emblem you're pretty much going to have to do a custom job or track down a Hoefel (sp?) grille. The Hoefel is a wire mesh grille made for the Euro crowd and has no indicators or Ford Badge. Only problem is, its rare and its $$$$$$.

The badgeless ones on ebay are cheaply made and cheap to buy.... but that speaks about the quality as well.

Your only bet for the badge-less one ARE the ebay ones, and they're not as much crap as you think. They're two styles out there on ebay. One's fiber glass and one is (i think) metal.

The most sought after badgless is the hofele grill, but even that has a little tiny emblem up in the corner. Wish I could find one of those. Almost impossible to find anymore.

i think the difference on the 02' euro and the st170 is that the st170 is color matched on the outer surrounding of the grille.

the emblems are made and basically built-in the grille. it can be removed, but you have a blank plastic insert. there are euro alike ebay grilles out there that have no emblem.

now whats neat about the true euro grilles, is that the ford emblem flips up so you can insert a transporter key and unlock the hood. in order to make it all work is to buy a euro hood latch and lock. heres my demo:
