All car grilles offered on the market today can be divided by the installation method and by the grille structure. The first characteristic defines 2 large divisions of grilles like overlay and replacement ones.
- Overlay grilles are mounted over existing OE grills without drilling and cutting your car. Such grilles are very convenient for the customers as the only thing that need to be done is to fasten the newly purchased part by the catches and derive pleasure from the new look of the ride.
- The second type is replacement grille that is mounted instead of the factory one. That type seems to be more complicated as it requires more efforts while installation. But it only seems so as that procedure can be easily performed at any local workshop or at your own garage if you have enough skills. In some cases one will need to replace only mesh without touching the entire shell.
The final result is really awesome as your car looks like it was delivered from the factory with such an exclusive option grille.
By grille structure custom grills are divided into billet and mesh ones. Each group has tons of variations. For example, billet grilles vary due to the amount of billets, their width, height and alignment. Mesh grilles differ by the cell size, weave type (single or dual) and cell shape. Also there are grilles that combine both styles. Such combination allows to create interesting patterns that will greatly upgrade your car’s appearance.
