The car grille is the most important auto body part playing a vital role in the appearance of the vehicle. Usually, there is a great variety of designs that the auto makers have successfully created to accentuate its relevant front and central position. There is no other place as privileged on the vehicle that allows them to use the brand emblem as a brand positioning hook, or the use of materials such as chromium that gives it much more notoriety and beauty.
But, because of their vulnerable position, grilles are easily damaged in cases of road accidents or other unexpected situations, and their costs could be much higher than you expect or simply be out of your budget depending on the brand and model of your vehicle. The price could truly become a headache; but in any situation, we do not recommend an aftermarket or replacement grille. If you really love your car the best option will be a used OEM, original grille.
First, OEM car grilles guarantee authenticity as these authentic grilles are removed directly from the car, same make and model like yours.
Second, since it was taken off of another original vehicle you have a guarantee of the quality, the long lasting materials, the brightness of the chrome parts, and the measurements will fit perfectly. Since the auto makers have spent time, and resources on trials looking for the best quality materials, the grilles for some luxury vehicles such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, Infiniti, Acura or Lexus have been made to last; there is no point of comparing an original part with the replacement grilles from Taiwan.
The grilles from China, or aftermarket third-party companies, usually do not have the exact dimensions and margins as the authentic manufacturer, and you do not have any evidence that they follow the same rules when choosing the materials to be used for the grille. The replacement grilles are very similar for some basic models of Nissan, Toyota, and even Chevrolet, Ford or Dodge, especially if there is a plastic grille, but even in the most common models, it is very easy to realize the differences. Do not take the risk with your car grille, because very soon you will feel frustrated with the results.
