9.5 gen sedan Sport grille - blacked out

Did we see this yet? I do not think I saw it discussed? Seems like there is a seller on EBay (Bulb-Xpert) who sells the blacked out Sport grille for $225 shipped?

(search for Accord grille)

Did anyone here buy this? Very interested.

Found another seller on EBay selling the same thing (cuztom_tuning), bought the last one. $214.69 shipped. Could not resist! I'll post some pictures when I get it all etc.

I got mine for $200 on eBay. Cuztom Tuning was the seller. Fit is great and worth every penny. A lot cheaper than oem and I wanted all black, worked out perfectly.

Sweet! And on the best color car too!

Question: I do not quite understand what is up with the logo. The logo needs to be transferred from the original grille to this? It just peels off?

I messaged the seller before hand and asked him about the emblem and he said its not included as they can't copyright it but surprisingly it was included with the grille. So I was happy. I sold my oem grille on offer up for $50 quick sale.

For those with these eBay aftermarket sport style grilles in all black or chrome/black, how are they holding up? Curious to see if they will peel/fade over time (esp. the chrome) or are prone to chipping. Considering the genuine Honda sport grille is anywhere from 70-100 more, these aftermarket grilles are not that much of a deal. But then again, paying nearly 350 or more for a grille is ridiculous so I see what the hype is about...

Mine is holding up great, no issues. Honestly its not cheaply made even though its aftermarket. The glossy black plaint in spot on, its like they took the sport accessory grille and cloned it. The "H" emblem is a little bigger. I mean any paint will chip if rocks are coming at it but that happens over time.

They just came out with these not too long ago and they are selling like hot cakes. nothing but good feedback from all the buyers. I wanted the all black one but you can get the one that has the chrome. They also sell these on amazon. Mine came in 3 days.

I say go for it you won't be disappointed. save some cash and thank me later.


The only thing I didn't like was the install which hey you can pay someone to do it but if you wanna pocket that money you do it yourself. The bumper pretty much has to come apart all the way. I just wish this grille was out at the time I got my underbody spoilers and I would have done it all at the same time since those needed the bumper off as well.

I bought this and installed about a week ago onto my black 2016 sport. Made a huge difference in the appearance of the car - I'm not a big fan of the 16-17 grilles. Fairly simple install and seemed well made. Paint work was perfect and packaging was great. Mine came from Ebay seller cuztom_tuning and came with the emblem for $235.

The only issue I had was the small retainer clips that go above the headlight wouldn't fit back. I'm guessing that the material is just a little thicker. I used one of the push type retainers and clipped it to size. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if I had the need.

You have too use a flat head screwdriver and bend the grill ends back. I did that to mine and they went back into their place otherwise theres a *** and the grill ends sit onto of the metal retainer.

Awesome, thanks for the great info! With regards to the H emblem, is it bigger on this grille than on the OEM standard grille? Or is the H emblem bigger than the one on the OEM sport grille? If so, I’m worried that the JDM red H emblem might not fit it which IMO would look amazing with the sport grille.

And I’ve taken the bumper off more times than necessary so I’ve gotten fairly efficient at it. Will be pulling the plug on one of these grilles soon.

I actually messaged the seller and asked about the H emblem; he said that emblem will NOT be included. I guess I'll be looking for an emblem separately on EBay.
LeoneSM did yours come with the emblem? Maybe they really just don't want to say it does but it does for everyone...
