    08 Sports Grille?

    So I've decided that the stock 08 WRX grille is just not doing my car justice. Those of you with 08 WRXs, did you get the sport grille and are you happy with it?

    I'm planning on ordering from Subaru Genuine Parts. Does anyone have any experience with this site?

    I've have nothing but good things to say about that site although I've only ordered like 2 things from there.

    As for the Sport Mesh grill, I personally believe it makes the car look a billion times better. Doooooooo it.

    Great, thanks for the advice! I'll order it tonight and put it on once I get my car back from the body shop. Yeah, some moron rear-ended me at a stopsign.

    Subie held up really well, but insurance is paying for a completely new OEM bumper and reinforcement bar just the same. So it'll be good as new when I get it back! Pics of the grille install to come.

    Well, finally got the grille and put it on the car. I LOVE it! Definitely improves the front of the car.

    much better

    while the 09 grill is a vast improvement over the oe 08 one (no chrome!), I'm going w/ the sport grill too (of course I'm carrying over the WRX badge )

    Mine came from the dealer with it and I think it is a 100% better. The factory grill just cheapens up the front of the car.

    Definitely have to keep the logo though, otherwise it just looks like a big hole!

    def picking up the sports grille within the next week or 2, then going to pick up the Lower mesh and hood scoop mesh from Grillcraft... lower mesh will go well with the sports grille

    I should be getting the lower valence and scoop grillcraft parts in this week. I picked them because they are very similar to the factory sport grill. hoping they will go in easy enough.

    I took the logo off the front and I think it looks great. Here is a picture

    Got them in today and Plan on an install this weekend. They are really nice looking. good fit and finish. It does require that you drill some holes, but its not too difficult looking.

    They are cool looking grilles!!! One problem I live in Australia and have just lost the badge off the front after being hit by a piece of wood flying off the back of a truck. Subaru Aus do not supply the badge alone. I need to fork out $400aus for a new grille. Have any of you guys got any idea where I can get a badge as they are a different size to all other models.
