    You could always modify yours? or try getting a Type-S grille from ebay or scrap car.

    You could always get some Plastidip and spray your existing grille. If you don't like it, simply peel it off.

    I can't see the front of your car, but if yours is a face lift, then the Type-S grille should fit (as far as I know, but I'm in no way an expert), and may even look good sprayed white (or maybe matt black) with Plastidip.

    If you need help removing the grille, I have a guide here you can follow (and you're more than welcome to ask for advice)

    I think this should fit - Tuning FK Automotive | ABS Sport Grill for Honda Civic 3-/5-door. Yr. 04-05 | purchase online

    in fact, that looks quite similar to the Type-S grille, but without the center badge.

    I've just gone and ordered one of those, to see how my car looks 'debadged' :Smile:

    Scrap that - I just zoomed in on their pictures and they are badly made. You can see where they joined / cut the grille from the moulding

    That is a really good price, but it looks like it needs finishing and painting.

    There website is awful though.

    Actually.... this could be a nice little project to try some Plastidipping on.... I'll sand down the plastic joins and then apray it in matt black.

    @pastore - you could try this one, as I think it will fit (I entered my reg details, and that was listed as compatible). More expensive than previous one linked, but will almost definitely be better quality, and it has place for you to stick a badge if you want.

    I find Cox motors good for parts. Honda dealer but sensible prices on most bits.

    @1066Boy this thread really needs to be closed. @pastore was banned a while ago.

    As for Cox, they are a decent supplier. However, Holdcroft Honda offer free next day delivery and Club Discount. They are also a first class dealership and as such, are our preferred dealer.
    Have a look through the FAQ's for more details.
