I know lots of you never look anywhere else... so I thought I wouldl link and we could have a general discussion...




Group Buy here...

My opinion... if the second picture is what we are paying for.... I think $200 for a carbon is kinda high... and the with the fiberglass being $150... by the time is painted you are looking at over $200 as well...

Thoughts?

I dont' know...it doesn't do muc for me. Maybe I need to see it in a finished, show room condition.

I think that it is a lot of $$ for what u are getting. I prefer to stick with my stock for now. But a CF might be nice to look at. I would have to see a finish product on a Speed6 to determine whether it is worth coughing up 200 for it.

:drive:

If the second pic is all there is to the grill, how will this cover the indentation in the bumper for the Mazda symbol?

It doesn't. That's an aftermarket bumper in the picture.

I like the single insert, half the price of a full grill. I panited the M on the grill to match the car to tone the front down some, M is just to big. Better picture's are needed to really determine if its a worthy purchase and what to do with the grill clip holes on the bumper.

Here is the link for the AE grill page #2 post #23

Is that by chance an aftermarket bumper for a mazdaspeed 6, or is it a mazda 6?

Yes it's a aftermarket, looks like the AE v2 bumper.

Yes, but is it for the SPEED 6? If not, will they make one?

If you think that grill is expensive don't even consider the Autoexe CF grill. Autobacs quoted me around $500 and Corksport gave me a quote of $600.

Why would anyone even consider buying anything from autobacs? Why would you ever pay full retail on anything?

They were one of the few authorized distributors for Autoexe in the US and happen to be down the street. After I found out what they wanted for one I didn't consider it. When I was looking back in January no one carried these items. I just saw the grill on Corksport right now for $388. But either way, if $200 is too much then $388 is still too much, correct?

Without it covering the dip in the hood from the logo...I'm out on this one, especially when they want $200 for a $50 part.

There's gotta be something better...and I don't think autoexe is it (at least from the cost side).
