I did it myself on my gen 1 but had the dealer do my new Gen 2 back in July when it came in. I talked to the tech that did it, he showed me the rivets he had to cut out on the stock grill, they are between the grill and bumper and there are 2 total (one on each side of the top). I don't think he replaced the rivets, pic below:Rivets into the bumper? Sounds like this is becoming more of a PITA by the minute. What goes in place of the rivets to install the new grill?
No problem, hope the picture helps! I had my whole car wrapped too, you won't regret it! I honestly would have done the grill myself but it was just easier and saved time to have it done at the dealer and my clear film installer did the whole wrap at the dealer so I didn't have to drive it unprotected Good luck!Thanks Nate, the car will be down for full clear bra and a few other mods so we will have time to take our time. Just waiting on Tag to get it to me.
Do you have to put rivets back in to replace the two that get cut? Can I do without them? My grill didn’t come with plastic rivets.Thanks, my guy got it in. We used some plastic rivets when we put it back together. That, tinted windows and black wheels really changed the attitude of the car.
I wish, lol. I’m taking it to a local shop, Induktion Motorsports, where they are only charging me $93/hr labor rate for a 2-3 hour install of the grille. I know the owner and they’ve worked on my GTRs and M3s in the past.You doing this your self? I might need some assistance with this as Im thinking of ordering one also.
I wonder the same thing too... anyone know if the rivets need to be replaced?I wish, lol. I’m taking it to a local shop, Induktion Motorsports, where they are only charging me $93/hr labor rate for a 2-3 hour install of the grille. I know the owner and they’ve worked on my GTRs and M3s in the past.
