Hello can you please give me your opinions on which grill i should keep. The Series 3 Fairmont or the C2R one. You will see that in the picture that the color of the C2R is Red, if i decide to keep it i will paint it same as my car color.
Thanks

imo the c2r grille looks way out of place without some sort of kit to match. look at maybe lowering with big wheels and dark tint to make it look the goods

but its your car, so ultimately its up to u

i agree. so i suggest you keep the fairmont one on until you can do more of a kit/wheels then stick the c2r one on

Keep the C2R one. They are very rare.

You can eventually get the Fairmont lip, which will make it look a lot better with the grill.

Keep it, stored away, and then when you decide for a bodykit, then chuck it all on. It'll look heaps better with the extra body work.

the chroem and the C2R style are just too different, they don't really go together. I think you should just keep the mont grilll man.

i think any kit you get new now will be made out of fibreglass, as c2r went out of business. maybe able to find a second hand plastic one on ebay or a wreckers?

try awc or ccs for the kit. one of them should be able to help you out.

the c2r one doesnt look good in my opinion, even with a kit, the fairmont grille looks so much better, with a kit or with out. too much going on with the c2r one

C2R/Havoc kit, is all Plastic.

You can get aftermarket Rear Bar & Side Skirts in Fibreglass. The front bar, you can't get in fibreglass.

FTG AS, have a full kit, for ~$4500. Including fog lamps, meshs, and everything.

You could get, the fibreglass rear bar & side skirts. I know of someone in QLD, that has a spare front bar.

I have a spare front bar, but don't really want to part with it.

Now that they are no longer in business, so, it'll make any car with their parts very unique & different.

Depends what sort of look you are going for, with your car.

i think the fairmont one looks better in that colour!! even though the c2r one is red it dont suit that colour car!! - just get the kit, wheels etc and leave it as is - but hold onto the c2r front - and sell it when they are getitng good cash for them ;)

I'd keep the fairmont one. If you keep the C2R one get rid of the chrome bit on the bonnet, it doesn't flow very well with the shape of it.
