EF grill is better... EL grilles remind me of fairlane grilles...
EF grille is also heaps sportier.. man in all honesty i'd leave it exactly how it was. It looked great without the EL grille and chrome will ruin the lines on it.

yeah i agree, stands out quite alot, easy enough to reverse. im going to get the chrome moulds fitted to the doors and bumpers though, so i figure that'll tie the grille in a bit more and it wont stand out so much.

Hmmm, I actually think it looks quite good on your car, might be the darker colour.

I just want to mod my EF one one day.
