    I have heard a few people with problems resulting from this. The cool air cannot get through where the grille used to be. So if you have a big meshed bumper then go for it. If not i wouldn't risk your car overheating tbh

    a friend of myn had one made a while back...im going to put a hole where the air intake is.. my mate had one and IMO looked better than any grille you can get for the astra.

    Irmscher grill is the better choice IMO.

    However you could get a custom grill made.
