    Found her in Austin at a Toyota dealership. 30k on the clock and with nav. I still miss the 337 but I really love the VR!

    I know! I had my heart set on a blue one but it sold on saturday. This was the only R in the Austin/Dallas/Houston area with this kind of mileage at the price.

    Ordered a new hole-less grille because the one that's on there has the lower center piece missing (it's actually broken out and it's not a removable piece, hence the entire new grille). The one that's currently on there is also cracked at the bottom and has license plate holes. The OEM one is $780+ so I got the replica ($250 shipped). From what I have read the fitment is fine (one hole doesn't line up but I know how to use a drill) but it's much shinier than the OEM brushed aluminum look. I'm going to throw this on and see how bad it looks (the missing center grille is currently annoying the crap out of me).

    If it looks bad I'm going to look into giving this one a brush aluminum look. I'm thinking maybe some high grit sandpaper. Worst case scenario I can paint it black or something. Another possibility would be to cut the lower center out of this and repair the OEM one I have somehow.

    Some dude on vortex also offered to ship me a K&N drop in for free! Didn't even want money for shipping. I think he felt bad about my 337 :worried:


    Edit: I also wanted to mention that I was a little bummed about the color at first. Then I realized UG is classy as fvck.

    nice R32! geez they want a lot of money for an OEM grill.. good call with the replica. A little elbow grease and I'm sure she'll look fine
