Your sentiments are undisputed....but chroming is not cheap for plastic as I understand it. At that price you'd think he was chroming a brand new Grille bought direct from Ford Spare Parts wouldn't you....

Further to my posts from ages ago, as a comparison, I've been quoted $150 to plastic chrome my BA wagon tailgate garnish. Obviously, as I said before, the BA XR grilles are one piece so they would cost more to chrome plate...might end up close to the egay price...cheers Linz.

Significant price drop.

Funny I just noticed this today. I don't know if that means they've been on sale for awhile now and I just didn't know about it, or if they all appeared online this week.

Don't mind the chrome look grille, would really set the exterior of the car off. $110 or so is a reasonable ask.

Normal chrome grilles have been around for ages, not chrome XR grilles. Excluding that $300 item we posted earlier of course.

These must be cheap Chinese copies, rather than coated factory units.

OK. I thought the $300 chrome XR grille we found earlier in this thread was from that guy you mentioned. If he was selling them for $110 as well I didn't see it.

I actually don't like the chrome cross-hatch.

I reckon it either needs to be similar to the fine mesh insert, or blacked out with chrome around the edges.
