The Euro R grill is an OEM product, fitment is perfect. Direct replacement item.
That's what i thought too, until i saw the euro-r grill on a CL9 (TSX). Apparently, the CL7 and the CL9 bumper are slightly different (don't know why...). I am very eager to convert my tsx into euro-r as well, but the grill always seem out of place on a TSX

Not that I'm aware of, unless it's a installation that wasn't done "correctly". I've personally seen 3 identical Euro R grilles where I did the installation on 1 for the CL9s and they all lined-up and fitted perfectly.

really?? that sounds interesting... i've personally seen one and i'm sure it doesn't fit right...there is approx 1 inch gap from the bumper to the bottom of the grill (the pointed part). I don't think installation can be performed incorrectly, since it is a straight swap, correct?

anyway. i think i'm gonna add the grill to my shopping list come spring.. along with my euro-r bodykit :thumbsup:

Unless we have a different bumper ... :jester:

But yes, simple plug and play. Remove old, insert new. You don't even have to use all the clips. Securing the top clips are sufficient.

From my experience I believe the NA bumper is different than the JDM CL7 or CL9. It could possibly be for US safety regulation, as most every NA Euro-R grill owner says it doesn't fit well, and even my Mugen one has a slight gap at the bottom.

That would seem the case if that's truly so. Because the Australian CL9s are no different from the JDM CL9s on the basic bumper type.

fitment of euro r grille

Awesome ride Hondaeuror

I'm curious, how's the fitment of your euro-r grill? i can't really tell by the pictures, but it looks very good
-the grill needed to be modified slightly to fit the usdm bumper, what i did was take of the honda molding around the grille and modiefied another molding around it to fit the bumper cutout better, also i needed to change the radiator support cover with the jdm cover so i could use the latch. The grille deff. needs to be modified to fir the oem bumber but since i own a bodyshop it was easy for me to locate a new aftremarket molding which i need to heat up to fit the contours of the grille, but it can be done.
