    OPC grille is a straight swap, no mods needed,

    perfect fit much better than any other,

    yep,
    same happens no matter what grille you have, just with the irmscher one the handle sticks out to much all the time,

    np,
    just imo if your fitting a opel grille rebadge the rest of the car to match, including the airbag, otherwise looks like half a job
