Ok so i got decided to order a billet grill off ebay. It was only $54 which is a TON cheaper then steeda. This is the one I ordered: clicky

So here is the install:

1) Pop the hood and remove the plastic piece over the grill. There are some goofy plastic screw that can be a pain so be patient.


2) Now you are ready to begin.


3) The kit comes with 4 screws, 4 nuts, 4 washers, and 4 black plastic pieces.


4) Put the grill on top of the stock grill and put the screws in the four holes through the stock grill. Then on the other side of the grill goes washer, black piece, then nut.


5) Tighten the screw all the way and have it pretty tight but don't over tighten.


6) Once its tight it will look something like this:


7) Put the black plastic trim piece back on, close hood and look at your handy work!


I like it and it only takes around thirty minutes to install. Overall it's a great bargin. Any questions or comments are welcomed.

id need a distance picture to really decide if i like it, but it doesnt look too bad from what i can see. but they ^^ are right, the mesh peeking out from behind has to go.

Ok tell if you think this will work. I take a piece of black plexi and cut it out to go behind the grill so all you see is black instead of the mesh. What do you think???

Hmm, I don't know. Throw on the black housing headlights and ST color matched grille.

I wonder how it'd actually look on my Focus. I also would want the bottom grille too.
