M.Scipione, what did you ever end up doing with your old one you got (the one that doesn't fit the sport? Mine has just been sitting in my garage because I haven't taken the time to do anything with it.

Take a look at post #10 on the first page. I'm pretty sure there is some drilling involved. Doesn't look bad, but with the nuts and bolts, I'm not sure how else to get them on without drilling a few holes.

I drilled 3 bolt sized holes thru the plastic. Whole install took maybe 10 mins.

Haha! Same as you.

Just sitting in a box cluttering my garage. I hate to throw it out, I should keep it in the truck to give away nest time I see the right truck for it in a parking lot.

Installed my $39 ebay special today looks pretty good and only about 5 minutes of work, 3 minutes of that was making sure it was centered. a couple of notes,1. it is not an exact match to the factory grill it has a flat profile, where the stock grill is rounded off. 2. You do have to drill 8 small holes in the original bumper filler so if you don't like it you are SOL. 3. The stock part is just a pressure fit so if someone else does like it you are probably SOL.

I'll be putting mine on this weekend.

Are you saying that the black plastic piece thats in the bumper now is just wedged in there? It has no mechanical fasteners?

I hope I don't lose mine at some point.

Yep, just a bunch of little tabs that hold it on.
