I was thinking of going with Niteshades but then heard some people complaining about them fading and keeping up on them. So then I started looking for the Hofele Grill and was having trouble finding it and couldn't decide if I wanted the little badge on it. When I was checking for the grill at www.European-Parts.net I couldn't find it, but I did find this http://www.european-parts.net/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21&products_id=35 and me not being able to NOT spend money; I bought it. I was just wondering what you guys think of it? I just really needed to get rid of those turn signals with my HIDs. Thanks guys!

not bad but a little pricey for pretty much a ford euro grille without a ford symbol, I would just chose to advertise ford for a little more than half that price

91 euro is kind of Steap i think, thats more than a hundred US. But, Who am I to say anything I have blown a lot more money for less if anything at all. At least your focus will look good.

i took black spray paint to my old grill.. sprayed it and let it dry for 30 mins.. then put it on the car and went for a spin. looked great for over a year until i traded it for an svt grill.. and just did the same thing to it. i get compliments all the time.
if you dont like the turn out.. there is stuff to strip the paint with out harming the grill..

Why would I ever wanna get rid of the HIDs? I can't think of a better system, Hella really did a good job on them.

The night shades product only fades if you dont put a clearcoat over the sprayed product. It is the greatest product but you have to clean the item with alcohol and soap/water.

That's kinda what I was going for though [:)]
why spend $100 and then some for it then, just takeyours out, w/o a grill or w/ this one though, you can see the hood latch, parts of the radiator, and some other crap that doesnt look pretty from outside the car

I've seen it on the car before and it looks better than no grill, I tried that to see what I though, it looks more finished, IMO, this way.

lol, well see maybe it will be on the classifieds. Does anyone know how long it normally takes to get something from European parts when it ships DHL, I imagine over a week but I'm just guessing.
