Default Installed Cheap eBay Grilles on my 2006 GTO

So I bought a GTO and it didn't have the front grilles. I bought some cheap ones on ebay for like $35 since I didn't feel like pay for the cost of stock grilles.

I had no idea the original grills were so expensive....makes me want to seel mine. Previous owner converted to the sap grilles, but gave me the originals.

I think the one thing I disliked about the billet grills for the GTO is they are more like an overlay. I think they would look much better recessed behind the opening. That said for $35 you can complain to much

So nice hood, nice paint and you decide to buy terrible looking grills that look crooked and **** on the whole car!
Eat the $35 throw those in the trash and buy these http://gtog8ta.com/04-06-gto/04-06-g...-reproduction/

or craigslist some stock ones...GTO's get wrecked everyday

I actually really dislike that hood and the paint is peeling all over the car. I would buy the correct grilles if I didn't have other cars the require money and attention.
