Huh, I didn't realize the aero bottom wasn't recessed... the one for the stock bumper is (and looks a lot better because of it.)

On the aero it is recessed, on the m7 it's apparently not. I never knew that.

that's what I was referring to, the M7 one for the aero bumper.

Hmm, that's a really good point I'm not a fan of the plastic grills because they're basically impossible to keep clean.

I wonder if you could buy the material they use and fashion your own grill out of it?

I've never had too much of an issue keeping all my pastic grills clean. I suppose you could hit them all once a year with some Black Wow to make sure they stay nice.

though i have never seen the m7 grills in person... the material looks identical to the chicken wire "gutter guard" from home depot that i used to make a grill behind my opened hood scoop..... it is indeed flimsy, especially if it was in a huge piece like the upper and lower grills-- that said, that is the home depot gutter guard, not the m7 grills, but itlooks similar. i considered getting it for my jcw aero front bumper.. but i didnt for the reasons mentioned about it being too flush on the bottom. i think the 'cutting' they refer to for the top grill is also the stock grill cut out and basically attaching their grill to the stock grill with the inside part of the grill cut out..... that was confusing. i'll stop here

not a fan of the m7 grill covers.

I do agree though, the stock grills suck. Mine are always dirty. Stupid honeycomb.

Y'all obviously don't live on a dirt road

I'll just have to hit it really well with some Black Wow until I find a grill that actually looks good. I really like the Duell grill too, but I'm sure that would be ridiculously expensive and I'd still have the stock lower grill

it's actually heavier gauge than that wire than that, you can bend it unless you're really putting excessive force on it.

correct, you just have to use the "frame" of the top grill to anchor the M7 one on.

M7 grilles

Moving into a house that's not on a dirt road

There. Problem solved.
