This is a well-made product. But, a key aspect of this grill is that it does not REPLACE the existing grill, but sits on top of it. I needed to replace my grill because it was damaged. There is very little space for your arm to extend down to the wrench holding the inner nut to tighten it onto the body. I've now got bruises on my arm. And, I'm going to have to do additional work to ensure a better connection to the body instead of the non-existent, stock grill. I'm unsure how to make this design easier, but be aware that if you are replacing your grill, you will need to be innovative to connect it directly to your car's body (e.g. new holes or threaded holes in the body itself). Overlaying it on an existing grill may be much faster and easier. Plan on spreading the plastic cover under the hood sufficiently to get your arm into it while you tighten the lock-nuts.
