    Stu,

    Can't find that thread.

    I don't know if there are any important updates there, but i saw a screenshot someone posted of a grill kit that came.
    Can you post the link?

    Where did you get the turbo grill?

    so when you get aftermarket lips or bodykits, do we get NA lips or Turbo lips now? Turbo Front definitely looks better.

    That one was a scam, no matter what you buy bumper wise you're going to have to come up with something to mount it.
    He bought it off ebay if i recall, they sell just the grill punch out. Like 100$ free shipping. But last i checked they bumped the price up.

    I purchased my grill from the dealer. They had the best price. There is also a site that sells euro wide plate vt grills. I do not buy eBay crap! And for the mounts I was able to use some of the top old grill which I am in the process of trying to design. I'm trying to make something that u can add afte you cut and not do what I have and rig off of pre existing mounts. But if u were to not make your own mount it can be done. After I finish my engineering school exam I will have a DIY thread. Then hopefully soon have a one piece backing mount which I will make a couple of if u desire the hybrid look like mine without the mess.

    Eclipes- if u like the turbo front then I would suggest driving down to the dealer and purchase it. I don't care for the fogs or the bottom but that's my opinion.

    Dattebyo- materials for lip. First you will have to design a mold. I made mine out of foam and bondo. Then I painted it covered that in mold release and since my pre-preg carbon went bad I went with fiberglass and a epoxy resin. Little bit of bondo glaze to smooth it out and a primer/paint. If u want me to make you one, you will have to let me finish up my finals and I can do a custom lip but I will let u know it took me around 20 hours for the last one but that was because I had to make special tools to achieve a even surface all around.

    I would be doing the exact opposite if I had a turbo -- I would be getting rid of the wide mouth bass look and adopting the Veloster NA grill instead. The earlier version of the Genesis coupe went wide mouth bass, too, and also looks better prior to that change. Back up, Hyundai -- you had it right to begin with.
