Default CTR replica Grill

Do the replica CTR grills found on sites such as jdmshit and robearracing have problems with fitment? The reason im asking is that i have a 97 ex and the grill is not collor matched to the car but has chrome around the edge, so i would have to get a new grill anyway to do a DIY.

Your mention of a chrome trim around the edge of your stock grill lends me to guess you either have a sedan, or a sedan grill on a coupe or hatch.

Doesn't really matter though. The replica grills don't fit like stock of course, but with a little extra care, they can fit pretty damn good. I scored an OEM SI/Type-R grill for less then I paid for my replica, so look around and you might just find the score of the year.

sorry to threadjack, but is there a difference in the 99-00 ctr grills and the 99-00 si grills?

SI and Type R grill both have the same part number. They are exactly the same.

EDIT: For the 99-00 models I mean.

I'd get the 96-98 Type-R grill in your case. Not cheap, but it'll fit perfect.

Do the real CTR grills have the mesh set farther in then the DIY CTR's? Im probably gona end up buying a white grill off a coupe or hatch then just do the DIY. The thing about the real CTR is that after you spend $200 on it you got to get it colormatched Click the image to open in full size.

I've seen the DIY grill in pictures, but I haven't seen them in person so I can't really say if the mesh sits further back or closer then the real Type-R grill.

I'm sure someone else can chime in with personal experience with the DIY grill.
