Thread: "back to OEM" project

  1. #11
    Thank you all for the feedback. I debated between the clears and ambers quite a bit but ultimately decided to go back to US-spec OEM, therefore ambers it is.

    Anyone know the part number of the plastic piece behind the lower mesh grille?

    going by this, it seems that my car has the "Euro" kidney grilles?

    The sides of your grille slats look black (from here!) vs. chrome like the front edge = stock USA.

    My signature shows a stock grill. Black side and chrome front edge and surrounding each kidney.
