Hey all...well after rehauling my 04 impala entire cooling system I wanna update the look. I was wondering where is the best place to buy an indy grill and where can you buy the chevy bow tie inserts for it?
Is the grill off ebay from car parts outlet legit?

well, the grille you posted is an aftermarket piece and the top and bottom of the bowtie are missing. (look closely)

As for the insert, if you want the factory plastic piece, the dealer should have those. Contact ZSpot here for NAIOA deals.

If you want a vinyl insert (color of your choice), we sell them here through the NAIOA Shop. I do recommend that they go on the factory plastic bowtie for best results.

The Bowtie Outline decal WILL NOT WORK on these aftermarket grilles due to the lack of the bowtie top and bottom.

anything not from the dealer will be aftermarket. Without seeing pics of them, its hard to tell. But from what I have seen here, most, if not all the aftermarket grilles have the missing pieces.

Check with ZSpot, he may be able to get OEM ones still. I know they discontinued some of the parts. Price will be higher, but quality will be greatly improved over the aftermarket pieces and it will have the complete bowtie surround.

The SS grille has gotten pretty pricey from GM. Even at wholesale price from me, it still runs members $148, plus the cost of a new bowtie. There is still stock available, but I'm sure for not much longer. They only used this grille for two years. Mad
