My 05 base Impala [9C3] has a gold bowtie on the grille. I just came back from the U-Pick, & got a spare grille for $10. Came off an 03. However the bowtie seems to have a blue insert on top of the gold bowtie. Did different years or levels of Impala use both colors? GARY

I believe the gold bow tie is for the Indy package. Blue was standard until the middle of 04 I think

Now that I look closely, they both have the insert. Blue on the U-Pick grille, & gold on my car. Otherwise, they are identical. GARY

The Naioa shop sold inserts awhile ago. I know they cut down on the shop but they could be in stock still
