Raul, not sure. Our grills come out real easy, but I have not looked close enough at the newer stuff to know if they come out the same way or how close the lines match up. It would suck to have to replace the whole front clip just for a grill.

Yeah, that would be sweet. the problem is, even if it does fit, is finding one and not paying an arm and a leg and your first and second born children. You could look for a wreck, but I bet that one would be even tougher.

Yeah, go into youe control panel, I don't remember which section, maybe options. It is down near the bottom somewhere. It is a check box, just uncheck it. It may take a few days to not get them any more. I did this a while back and still get an email every now and then if it is an old thread.
