      Nice job. You have a lot more energy that I do. What is your labor rate?

      i was completely unaware of the grill replacement program until it was long over. i bought mine in sept. '07. lazy sales rep should've called or emailed or something.

      i am growing tired of the ss .:R32 plate up front too. probably going to do the custom german euro plate up front. one for day-to-day and one specifically for WiTW.

      Replaced my front bumper / grill this week with a new unit - no plate holder. Easy swap and makes a big difference in the appearance. My state requires a front plate, but I've been driving 3 other cars for several years - none of them have a front plate - no problems! Knock on wood!
      My new vanity plates are on the way. FUN X R32. I'll probably just carry the unused front plate in the trunk or under the front seat - just in case.
