Hey everyone, done some searching but can't find any grilles for the 2006 except for the carbon fiber one on ebay. I am looking for something on the lines of this one http://www.therpmstore.com/product_info.ph...d0ac8e7f3c7ee1d
And what do you guys think would the paint job would go for a grille like that? Never had anything painted so i have no idea, thanks.

When I first bought my car I bought the Accolade. So I got it and the bottom tabs didnt fit. When I emailed them they stated that this was the first that they had heared that the '06 changed. So I cut them and sanded the area smooth. Drilled a small hole in the bumper and the grill and attached it via a zip tie. It now fits perfectly with no issues. And with out reading this you would have no idea it was attached in this way.

do you have any pics of it on your car? And did you mod it first then get it painted or paint then do the drilling/sanding? And does it look deformed in any way? And how much did it cost you for the grille and paint? I'm kind of worried that the fitment might be a little weird, after you modded it, did it fit pretty good? I'm not really looking at the accolade one because i'd much rather have the one from therpmstore.com. I'll have to talk to them and see if they've had any 2006 customers yet.

1. Picks of my car are in the garage area
2. I cut and sanded then had it painted for $50 at a collision place
3. It fits perfect and is in no way deformed
