I like the style of the grill but not the chrome finish. I havn't been into the chrome on any of my cars. Just me...

I would not be surprised to see custom grills come out for the RL. I haven't heard anything from Cloud Rider yet but I should hear something soon. They sell a lot of custom grills. A whole lot...

I like the looks of the stock grill. But, I will take a look at whatever is offered in the aftermarket arena.

Honda is going to offer a different grille as an accessory ....from what i have seen its more of an egg crate design.

Hmmm, I still like the looks of the stock grill. I can't really tell until I see both in person.

I'll bet that both grills are plastic. I used to have an Infiniti FX45 and the 'chrome' grill on that vehicle was just plastic.

The aftermarket grill is "chrome plated" plastic. It is a honeycomb design. I like the original grill better.

Thanks for the picture. I think I will be sticking with the stock grill for now.

I may install the bumper guard as well. I see your point about chrome overload. Hmmm, I am going to have to think about this one for a bit.

I have to say I really like the "optional" grill replacement. If you want to see what the vehicle looks with the original grill verses the "optional" grill use the honda configuration right off honda.com. It kind of gives you an idea...personally it the replacement grill makes it look more truck like.

I saw a Ridgeline yesterday that had the stock grill and the brush guard andf I liked it. The optional grill is nice but I am going to stick with the stocker for now.

The optional grill has more openings ..... better air flow and a cleaners look .

Can the optional grill and other items be factory installed ?

I love the optional grill, but it is only a dealer install and more than likely will stay that way for both Honda and the dealers sake. The grill is a bit expensive at around $500 plus labor....Not sure how much dealers in other areas are charging to install it. I got my installed with a package of accessories and bargained a total labor cost for everything together, which saved me around $600!
