    FK or standard grille?

    a while back i fitted an FK slatted grill to my coupe, but after seeing many coupes around, i am beginning to prefer the standard grill.

    i am a big fan of the crome boot trim on the coupe and feel the standard grill would continue this chrome theme around the front of the car.

    what are your opinions?

    the thing that annoys me about the fk is the bonnet release does not pop all the way back in when bonnet is closed, other than that it looks mean and moody on by black coupe

    Hello filfy, welcome.
    # hi jack #
    Got any pics of the mod you made to the bonnet pull ?


    marcb, I'd go for the chrome FK grille.

    I know what you mean about the chrome. I had my irmscher grill on and off all week trying to decide weather i prefered the original or not. I dont really like the FK grill, so id go with the standard one. But thats only my opinion, and you should do what makes you happy.
