What to do? Chrome package or Billet grille?

I'm having a hard time deciding what grille to stick with. You might know that I bought a Chrome package grille a few weeks ago, but the old lady is telling me she likes the factory grille with billet better. What do you all think? Look at my garage to see the difference.

You mean the billet on top of factory? I havent been too satisfied with this knockoff chrome package grille at all. Waste of $200 to be quite honest, but I'm holding on to it just for principle. I got screwed, and am dealing with it.

I do like that one, since it is what came from the factory. My GF likes that grille with a bolt-on billet grille on top, not so much like in the picture.

But, like I said, I just bought the chrome package grille and am having a hard time taking it off since it is so new. It's definitely tough since the white makes the billet grille seem more monotone in my opinion. Tough decision

But if you wanna buy mine for cheap I'll definitely let her go

That second pic is of the Chrome package grille. I know there are some issues with fitting a 2005-2007 grille on the 99-04 models, but apparently they are small. Hopefully someone else can help in that regard.

it can be done but you have to trim part of the bottom of it to fit our bumpers... or you can get a new 05+ bumper and you would be ok.... i do like the factory with billit .. thats what i have on mine but mine is an 03...
