hondaguyinla: The Sport grille looks so much better than the OEM chrome mustache. There should be some sort of civic award given to those who choose this environmental improvement.

Just ordered the black grille from the dealer. Ended up being a little cheaper than going with the college hills honda. Excited to make the swap! Everyone's pics look great!

I've searched about 3 sites now, as well as the links posted within this thread. I've yet to locate a black grill for the '16. Am I overlooking something?

I have the WOP Touring and would love to switch out the chrome Unibrow.

Congrats to all of you with these cars. They look awesome.

The 2016? I think you're looking for a part that doesn't exist...I'm pretty positive Honda never made an optional grille...

You could have yours wrapped or something along those lines though...

Sorry to be do annoying-- do you have close ups/breakdown of the piano black pillars??



For everyone who has posted their cars with their new grilles, did you have to put on a front license plate after? My state license plate is cringe worthy. Not looking forward to it...

Yes my state does require one but I live in a area that has a influx of other states that do not require front tags. Makes a lot harder to distinguish unless your doing something to draw attention to yourself. So nope not going to run one, looks so much better.

While we're on the topic of front plates...as a NY resident, we are required to have a front plate...how/where exactly does the front attach?

Put the black Grill with black chrome accent on Saturday, definitely like the look so far. Not too hard of an install, definitely need some plastic trim tools to get at some of the clips. Attached are some before and afters.

On a side note, holding my phone down to take the photos really shows the gap issue with the hood. Don’t notice it as much at eye level

Getting this installed on my white sport this Wednesday and I can't wait! I was a little torn because the sport already has the smoked chrome but I couldn't resist. My wife works for the local Honda dealership so I will not be disclosing price but it's definitely worth it to me. Can't wait for spring to actually clean this car up and make her shine!

This is a dumb question, but my google search was fruitless... What is PPF?

Beer. Check. Expensive plastic parts. Double Check. I'm ready for Saturday now. This thing looks really good in person. The smoked version I have now looks pretty good, except for how it is a water spot magnet, but I'm glad I got this now.

What an awesome factory accessory from Honda. Just got mine done on a white sport this week.
