BA XR6 lower grill

This topic has been covered b4, but this is a must 4 my new XR6, just what one to get. Is there new modem/makers out there? Have seen up to 1/2 dozen different ones around, but unsure what one to go for.
Have seen them from $80 - $220, big difference. Some have smaller holes and others have holes close to the size of the upper grill.

Out of the people who have got them, what looks best same size grill or different size grill? I'm leaning towards same size grill?
Is the Herrod grill the same size as upper? Is it matt black like the upper? Can u get it without any herrod stuff on it ie plain, as my car will look stupid with that and no herood mods............yet!!
Any pics and assiatance would be appreciated as I just cannot visualise what I want yet, hoping u guys can lean me in the right direction.

Cheers
NB

PS Any word on the herrod website and when up again? Anyone got any email addresses at herrod I can send an email to?

Thanx 4 the reply. The herrod are the spacings in the holes the same as the upper grill? Can u get the herrod 1 plain, with nothing on it? How much are herrod grills?
The ones on ebay are smaller grills (ie. holes smaller than upper grill), dont think I like that look, like them to both look the same if possible.

Cheers

yes the top and the bottom are the same spacings , give them a call, tell them you are a FF member you will get 5% discount...ask them for fitting instructions because some have said they need them...or if in Melbourne they will fit in about 10 min..

I don't think Herrod has a plain grill (could be wrong though), but whether you have Herrod mods or not, it doesn't really matter.
