My SR's lower grille has some paint damage, I was wondering if they sell replacements. I would repaint but considering the amount of abuse that area gets already, I feel like it would be a waste. This is the area I'm referring to:<p><IMG SRC="http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h180/xcmav66/100_0697-1.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: Lower grille insert (Evos_R)

Re: (p0cket penguins)

Since this is a non-mechanical component, I recommend the Evolve lower valence grill insert. Looks great, and is well made. Comes in Black or Silver. I have the black one covering my PhMIC. <A HREF="http://www.evolvecars.com/site/index.php?id=99,124,0,0,1,0" TARGET="_blank">http://www.evolvecars.com/site...0,1,0</A><p>Edit addition: Perusing classifieds, and came across this: $ 130.00 for the lower (!) in Silver: <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=118773" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=118773</A><p><br><i>Modified by Short Circuit at 8:20 AM 5-17-2009</i><BR><BR>

We have the Evolve lower grille insert (black) on my wife's R and it definitely adds a nice touch to the front-end IMHO.

Street Scene Equipment holds a number of design patents covering their valance/grill covers and I believe has a pending utility patent application for their clip system.<p>Cheers,<p>J
