Default I V'd it.

So the other night after having a few drinks apparently I decided to order a V Grill off of Ebay. It arrived today.


Out with the old..

And new hotness.
This is it freshly unpacked from its box.


It is a genuine GM part too, brand new from GM. It retails for $600! (I paid less than half that for it!)

This weekend I'll finally beable to take off the stealies in the rear and put the stock wheels back on. I don't expect any more significant snowfall this year so I shouldn't need the snow tires.

The difference in appearance from the stock grille to the V grill is HUGE IMO. The car looks so much more classy than it did before. I'm very happy with the upgrade.

Don't take offense, but you paid 300 dollars for that?
I think it could have been spent better elsewhere, but oh well...

It'* stainless steel. ... not exactly a cheap metal. You have to understand though that this is a car enthusiast site. Most people would think that most of the things we all buy for our cars are a waste of money.

Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet. I think it looks great.
