    Looks like it's just a grill frame with everything removed off of it.

    It's missing the top bar too Mikie.

    OP, I believe HT Autos had something like that. SMY is a US distributor of their goods, you could ask them.

    Hmm...maybe the top bar ran away and took positive camber with it?

    Looks like more like an OEM trimmed. But either the Chargspeed carbon fiber or HT autos wouldn't look bad. Even with the top bar it seems to be mostly hidden when the hood is down

    Yeah, I'm sticking with that being the HT Autos grill. The car in the OP has a black surround, so it's hiding the little bit of a top bar in the shadow.

    Edit: After putting both pics together, maybe not the HT Autos one then. Side bars are thinner on the OP car. So, I'll partially agree with the first thing Mikey said, but it's definitely looks like a modified OEM frame (removed top bar). Remember seeing a thread a long time ago where a guy was making something like that, no clue if it ever got done though, as I stopped following the thread when the OP (and progress) disappeared for a while.

    Not sure on the lip...looks too big to be the Bayson R V-Limited replica...looks like it could be a Chargespeed lip.

    I think it's a trimmed version of the stock grill. It's most similar to the JDM Sport grille from ebay (<- click) but it is thinner on the sides like the stock grill.

    Here's the how to on this for a DIY grill.
    Took me about four hours and only cost the Bondo I already had. And dremel.

    Once apart, cut off the mustache

    Bondo shut than spray. I just used PlastiDip

    Reinstall,please note that the easiest way to get the grille off, is to remove the entire bumper for easier access to the lower screws

    Sorry about that attachment. I can't see it when I go to edit it out. So I'm unable to remove it.
    My apologies
