A grille is necessary because it protects the engine, the radiator and other components that and before the engine are built against stone chips, coarse dirt, weather and insects. At the same time, however, the radiator grille lets fresh air into the components to enable correct operation. Instead of the factory grille, you can use high-quality tuning versions or OEM components with a different look to give your vehicle a new look for relatively little money.
The most popular tuning variants for a modified grille are: Aluminum mesh, carbon fiber mesh, plastic mesh, mesh sports mesh, kidney double-bar mesh (BMW), various racing mesh or racing mesh, expanded mesh and the popular honeycomb mesh, the we mainly know from the Audi RS or S-Line vehicles.

The radiator grill tuning models are available in different sizes and countless variants. Most grille grilles are easy to assemble and are attached by clips or glue. They are easy to cut and bendable. You can buy your tuning grille in different colors and use it to modify the factory grille, for example. Or you can opt for a completely new component and install, for example, a chrome-plated or black painted radiator grille or one with a sporty carbon look. Noble piano lacquer design or paintwork in the color of the car, etc., are also feasible.
this is how you do your grille tuning professionally
In the most Cases, the following procedure applies. Of course, this always depends on the brand and the specific vehicle model. Open the bonnet and remove the screws on the grill, usually 4-8 pieces, which you can easily unscrew with a suitable screwdriver. On some vehicle models, you may also need to remove the bumper. A Mercedes often carries the grill in the hood, while an Audi has built the grill in the apron at the latest when the single frame appears. If the apron has to come down, in some cases the underbody cover also has to be removed. If you look at the fastening of the grill, you can often see various noses on the screws. You can almost always carefully pry it open with a screwdriver.
You should now be able to remove the grill. You can now install your new grille in reverse order (Plug & Play variant). If you just want to install a new grille, you can cut it to size and glue it in. Gluing can be done “behind” the factory struts or you can remove parts of the radiator grille and replace them with your new grille.
