Well I was looking at different kind of grills and I am not going to lie there are nice one for like 300 and higher, but i am not a high roller like that .I bought one from ebay like 120 for everything, even shipping. It got here in 2 days and put it on with no issues. my main concern was that he the price was to good and thought they would not fit or have issues with linning up holes. No issues at all and looks very nice, I went to the dealer to get a oil change and the 08's that they have had the same grill and wanted 350 for the grill. The are made with the same material. I thought i would share my opinion on the grill thing for people thinking about buying one from ebay I am happy with my choice

Yeah mine is not stainless steel, but I can't really see the difference, but of course if something fly to my grill like a bird then i am sure it will break, and yours... well you would just have to wash it, but dont plan to run into birds or nothing

how about the wing...ist fairly close to the real oem wing? cause when i was looking for a grill for my 300C i was gonna buy those grill on ebay for like less than $100 but wasnt sure if the wing is so fake and would look really tacky... i was looking for about a month and comparing the wing with the real mopar grill and to me it looked like the wing on those ebay grill looked deformed... so i ended up getting this one chrome grill where you can buy the oem wing n emblem and put them on yourself... but i wasnt to happy about the fitment... so im lookin to buy a different grill... let me know

Looks very sharp. I prefer the look of the verticle grills to be honest, and also plan on purchasing from ebay. Will post pics of the install soon :)

For the Emblem it fit correct. I was thinking of taking it off the original emblem off the grill, Do you think it would work?

copy and paste the site here and i can tell you...
the one i bought said 50 but shipping was like 50 too. so i think its the same price i payed. Trust me i was worried if the grill i bought was cheap too andof course bc i was payin 1/3 of what other people pay for high quality grill. I was thinking if i washed iit in the car wash, would it break with high power washing system or whether it was too much of a plastic material. I got it and it was pretty heavy and strong. It even seemed stronger then the oem one.


and the instalation was easy. i downloaded the instructions from another thread and was going to print it out and realized it was 15 pages.. I did the mexican way and just unscrewed screws that seemed to be connected to the bumper and was a piece of cake.

Just be wary about some of the Chinese eBay grilles (Cheap ones).

We supply grilles to OEM companies for a wide variety of cars (installed at the factory, Ford, Honda, Nissan, etc..) and we took one of those "cheap" grilles and performed a salt spray test on it, and it failed miserably. It corroded in certain area because the quality of the chrome plating was not all that good. But, you get what you pay for. You may or may not have issues with them...

eBay Motors: 04-07 Chrysler 300 300C Chrome Mesh Front Grill Girlle (item 370024805031 end time Feb-24-08 15:35:48 PST)

here is one if sells, he has alot of grilles with the bentley sign, but I thought it looked weird so i got chrysler emblem instead... the grill i got is similar to this and I am happy with it, only when I go out of town, it catches lots of bugs, but no regrets.
