    This sub seems most relevant here.
    The key being the bottom of the article and aftermarket fixes.

    I’m sure there’s a more local link to this company.

    I love the way this look as much as I hate the standard grill. If this is what it really looked like, I'd have an order in already.

    It's a simple automotive design principle that grills look better when they are wider, than they are taller.
    It gives the impression of width rather than height...its a desirable look for performance cars.
    That's why Mercedes and Audi get away grills as large or larger :thumbsup:

    This looks mega! You'd struggle to find someone who prefers the current front end compared to that.

    I’m not offended by the original, but that looks like a big improvement IMO

    Past renders have looked gash but that does look good. Still don’t mind the original though.
