Anyone on here have an aftermarket front grille? What company did you get yours from? I know IPD has them, are there any other companies I should know about? Any other info on aftermarket grilles would be appreciated. Thanks
Here are a few places to choose from. I'd probably buy from IPD since they're in the US.<P><BR><A HREF="http://www.brickstylz.com/Products/Volvo_850/volvo_850.html" TARGET=_blank>www.brickstylz.com</A><P><A HREF="http://www.volvonet.org/tpc/grille.html" TARGET=_blank>JP Styling</A><P><A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com" TARGET=_blank>IPD</A><P><A HREF="http://www.hallsjostyling.com/prod/ovrigt/sportgrill_volvo_850a.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.hallsjostyling.com/</A><P><A HREF="http://www.europeantuning.com/styling.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.europeantuning.com</A><P>

Thanks for all the help on this. The reason why Im getting a new grille is because my old one is busted. Therefore, I am not interested in painting my stock grille. I have decided on the IPD silver grille. Thanks again.
