black / silver front grill exchange

Would anyone possibly be interested in swapping their standard black Stilo grill (with the fiat badge still on) for my silver one?

I'm sorry if i have posted this message in the incorrect place.

Here is my one:

Re: black / silver front grill exchange

how come you are wanting to swap it, and your front bumper looks a lot different to mine - is it from a 5dr car

i wonder what it would look like on my car

Re: black / silver front grill exchange

Hi Joshua,

Yes you are right it is a 5 door bumper on my 3 door model. Check out the link below and it will explain why.

https://www.fiatforum.com/stilo/1300...or-bumper.html

Her is a picture of my car as it currently is:



However, I have managed to acquire a shumi front bumper and am waiting for it to be fitted in the next week or so (just waiting for the mesh clips to be posted from the dealer as they lost them and had to be ordered seperately). I am sticking with the black mesh provided with the shumi bumper (in the lower vents at the bottom). I want the black grill to match with this mesh and i think along with the shumi bumper it will give the car more definition at the front. I was thinking of putting in the new silver stilo facelifted front grill but i have changed my mind as i'm not sure that will give the car such an aggressive looking stance at the front. Here is a picture of what the finished job shoud look like....with someone who has an identical car to mine but has already had the shumi bumper fitted:

This is how i bought the car with the vent sprayed silver it seems like a professional job. Have you seen someone else with a 3 door model with a 5 door bumper fitted then PNL?

I have never removed a front grill either. there is a guide on here and it appears to be a fit fiddly and most dont seem to be able to remove it without breaking something!

I am up for swapping but the trouble is I don't know if it would be worth it in petrol and time for either of us travelling too far to swap grills over? I live in North Hertfordshire very close to Junction 9 on the A1 which appears to be quite a long way away from you in North Yorkshire...even half way.

As far as i know it is exactly the same grill..unless anyone can correct me on this? - good point might be best to make sure of this first!

Re: black / silver front grill exchange

Hi mate,
I've got one knocking around from when i fitted badgless Mattig grill.
From memory it is in very good condition as it was fitted new after i had a front end shunt.
Your welcome to buy it, a silver one is no use to me though... make me an offer via pm!!!
