    Front one is in... I may wait a couple of months for warmer weather as I have to do it outside. I want to make sure the 2 way sticky stuff is not effected by the cold. Would it fall off if I put it on in below 0 C?

    Front was really easy to change!

    Did you have to remove the grill to change the bowtie? I wanted to just paint it but mine has a chip in it so I want to just replace it with the same one you did.

    Yes and I have a heat gun... I just hate workin in the cold. It will be warmer here soon so I can wait! I Hope!

    Keep me posted... Were going for TIM's when I come back home in March..
    Sure sign me up for Tims anytime! Coach isn't coming right? OR is there a response here for things you don't say to your spouse...

    Nope no need to try and convince anyone that you will need a new grill. At the most there is a plastic piece on top of the rad with about a dozen clips (push pin type) that a flat head screw driver will make short work of. I ran out and took some pictures. I will post these very shortly once i get them off my blacberry...
