Infiniti M35 / M45 Grill Thread

Postby Moon Man » Sat Oct 02, 2010 7:32 pm

Hope i'm not recreating a topic...

Anyways, I think it'd be nice if we could all post up the Grills available for our cars so then everyone who is looking for one may see the variety. I'm looking to swap my grill soon so i've been searching around. So far my favorite is the

E&G CLASSICS - Heavy Mesh Style Grille - Price: $585 shipped on Ebay

Image

Does anyone know if this will fit the 06-07 models?

Please post up available grills... and prices too if you know. Also, i've heard good things about the Element 114 grill, does anyone have a pic of that? Thanks.

I'm leaning on going with the 2008 chrome grill. Part # should be 62310-EJ90B (WARNING: every time I search for info on the 2008 grill they look different, while using the same part #) also the Infiniti enblem doesn't come with the grill.

grill $236
emblem $34
from: Infinitipastsusa.com

this grill also comes in sport (black)

I'm still searching on how to install it on a 2006 M45, I have read that it will stick out a little (bow) at the bottom where it meets the bumper, which look good to me.

this grill looks classy and sporty at the same time, keeping the chrome that matches the rest of the chrome on the car.

eom aero kit (I will get 1 day)

I have to agree with Infiniti_lineup here. I don't think that grill looks good on that white M. It's popping out too much and just not sitting correctly. I wouldn't want to get a grill that doesn't fit well or rattles while driving. But everything else about the car is clean - and it looks like the headlights are tinted/darkened from the inside which gives it an aggressive stance.

Anyways, I'm not really digging any of the grills available for our Ms =/ (except the first one i posted which apparently only fits 08+ models)

I really like the new Lexus Grills, i wish someone would make an aftermarket version for the M:

The first thing I did when I bought my M was remove the front license plate holder (no front plate in Indiana). I just left the holes. Which is worse? Symmetrical black spots (holes) on the front of a white car, or Symmetrical plugs that match the paint on the front of a white car? I didn't know plugs were available, but then there are usually so many bugs on the front of mine the holes blend in.

I might go with blacking out the middle and leaving the top and bottom chrome along with the logo...

sort of like the FX50 grill look in the pic below:

I kinda like the blacked out grill. My grill has either water stains or the finish is wearing off in spots. I'm going to see if I can get it replaced under warranty and if not I'll just paint it.

You tease me with those grilles from Jason Burtman! I've been looking for a new grille for my 2009 M35, and all those are 2006-07.

All they have for 2008 - 10 is billet and mesh. I'm not a fan of either. But I like the HKS. Similar to the stock grille without the logo.

my understanding is that the black M35 on top showing the Balsarini grill is a 2008.

yeah on the second thought painting the grill does look kind of cartoonish.

I'd love to go for this look and just take off the fog lights all together:

The only aftermarket grille available for the 2006-2007 model years are:

C-Mod Grille (I've purchased it and can attest to its good quality - it does require painting) - $170.00
Can be purchased on eBay from c-mod

These are all pictures from my vehicle:

Billet Grilles (please don't purchase this...u-g-l-y!) - $340
Top portion can be purchased from Jason Burtman Industries
Bottom portion can be purchased from Jason Burtman Industries


**Note: Not only is it ugly, but the bottom portion covers up the air intake for our vehicle. Not good!

The following pictures are taken from an eBay listing:

Let me know if you guys want me to do the same breakdown for the 2008+ or 2011 models

I like how you used my car for the Balsarini grille pictures ;)
