when I bought my 2009 nissan altima it had the chrome stock grill and looked awesome but after getting into a minor rear ender the only option I had was the stock black one which just doesnt fit the outlook of the car so i need some help into finding another one.
I'm not following you ... you can purchase a chrome grill direct from Nissan or go to a wrecking yard (either physically or online) and pick one up that way. So why was the black your only option?
I talked to the dealership and even went to Nissan Canada but they said the full chrome has been not the one with the 3 black bars in the middle is not made anymore. The one on the right is stock grill with the 3 black bars in the middle
unless you like the chrome look and being showy, you can find one from the dealer or go to upgradeyourauto.com and either go with a chrome billet style or mesh grille. I have their mesh grille, but covered it up with Plastidip baby!!
2009 2.5s with Takeda sri, Stillen front strut brace, 6k HIDs, black matrix depo tails, glossy black roof vinyl, LED drls., Plastidipped oem bumper
future mods: lowering springs, Racingline or Stillen rear sway bar, 4 channel amp, catback exhaust, 2JR pulley swap
^ i like how you plastidipped it. is it solid right now or are there still the fine mesh holes still there? btw i also like how you made your own eyelides with plastidip...never thought of doing that, it looks good
by the way, I took out the bulbs from the parking lights, so the LED drls still work. I originally switched to LED bulbs, then did custom eyelids with plastidip and then was curious if the derls would still work without bulbs in there since they're wired to my parking lights wire
Not sure how long you have owned your car or how long you been on the forums. I have been on the forum since the 2007 and seen everything being made for these cars. That grill you use to have is not OEM from Nissan and is an add on insert that goes on top of the black portion of the OEM grill. In your picture you can see how the insert had a cut out for the emblem to pop through. So does the one in the ebay listing above for $70 with free shipping to anywhere in the states and Canada.
