Badgeless grill

I have been looking at different grill options lately. I figured it was something I'd do later down the road until this happened today.


Big ass coyote at 70mph. My original thought was to keep the stock grill and black out the chrome v and emblem and also black out the fog light bezels. Recently I've been looking into badgeless grills. There are 2 in particular.
One is the MIT grill that most people have seen. But I've run across another that I really like so I thought I'd post a pic of it.




I'm not a huge fan of the honeycomb style but I'm digging the second one. Any thoughts?

I'm sorry for what happened to your car

Regarding which one looks better, IMO I like the second one better, but that's just me...

Also if you are able to find a grill which looks like the one on the new CX-5 2017 it would be fantastic!

Those 2 will look better w/ the plate relocated...


Between both, I'd lean towards the 2nd, too.

I heard that bayson r has 2 new grille types coming in a week or so, I'm currently waiting on them to see which grilles they are. If I like it I'm gonna grab the front lip and side skirts at the same time. If not then I'm gonna grab the mit grille simply because others on here have them and I haven't heard anything negative yet. Also because I have red hella horns I wanna show off ��

Yeah I'm curious to see what they are getting. I posted that info on here last week when I picked up the lip and skirts. I'm glad I held off on installing them. They have a couple of spoilers too that are not online yet. We mocked them up on my car while I was there

Dude thanx for posting it. I couldn't find the post to quote.
Do you know what the grilles look like? You got pix of the grilles and the spoilers?
