    My sport grille arrived from HH today, much excitement!

    Just need to be patient now and apply several layers of plastic primer, colour and lacquer, I mustn't rush or I'll mess it up....

    Take your time and it will look superb.

    Why did you get one for your colour they come pre painted ? Or did they not have one in stock at the prices indicated?

    it will spot on when its done.

    Very, very disappointed in Honda that they never bothered making one for ADAS-equipped cars. Sigh!

    I know but can't have it all, maybe the future cars Honda Access will look into it without the need for radar calibration.

    It will happen if the uptake to ADAS car increases thats provided Honda can make them and deliver them to their customer quickly :Whistle:
    when ADAS came out honda only wanted then on auto petrol models they then said we want this system on auto not confuse the customers with gear changes and other distractions. They soon refined it to manual cars and Civic CR-V not have them.

    3rd Generation ADAS will encompass broader changes and few more mods.

    None available in Polished Metal, not at that price anyway. £125 was an absolute bargain, just shows how much profit margin there is in parts, I think RRP for the primer grille is around £280!

    For less than £30 in spray cans, I can get a very passable finish, just need to take my time.

    the margin on accessory is not there anyway.. these grills have been reduced to clear the stock as Honda wants the 8th Generation stuff gone. Great bargain.

    £125! That is an impressive saving.
    can't wait to see the finished grille fitted.
    Cheers, Mark.

    its been live for months but it does need a lot of work the CR-V 4th Generation section is pretty much all there.. but need owners to contribute towards it.
