After waiting until most of my performance wish list was complete, I finally got one of these grills when I saw the price down to $119. Came to understand it is being discontinued after stock is sold off. Follow this link. https://www.evolutionsports.com/products.cfm?catID=77
The manufacturer site is here. http://www.evolutiontuning.com/evogrillb5001.html
Put it together and painted it today, very nice quality. My car is black so it makes the match pretty easy. Will get pics when weather is better, just wanted to give a heads up on a nice body piece at a good price. :wink:

Do you mean the rubber strip that you put around the edge of the perforated metal grill?

The front opening is a straight shot at the fresh air inlet and seems to provide a better path than stock. I haven't fit it on yet, but I'm figuring with some very minor mods, a continuous path can be created. Nenad, any comments?

It perfect fits on OE intake inlet. I have it since summer and behind have BMC CDA and did not encountered any problem up to now.No debris, no water- works realy good. Mesh is good quality and mask frame as well. Only downside is rubber, it is really soft and I will change it with something, still do not know with what. during fitting it will be neccessary to drill 2 extra wholes in plastic. This is minor mod, nothing hard.

I got mine painted for $50, after getting quoted 125 elsewhere. I think that's a good price for upkeep. I like mine too. It was a slight PITA to put together (extra 20" worth of drilling and fitting), but I like the results.
