Bringing this back from the dead.

I got tired of the holes is my front bumper grill, so I picked up a new one from Partsgeek and had it painted Black Mica.

10 2010 Mazda 3 Bumper Grille - Body Mechanical & Trim - Action Crash, Front - PartsGeek

It took about 7 business days, from the time I ordered it, for it to reach me in California. It's comes unpainted and is a matte grey in color. There was a lot of plastic flash from the molding that I had to trim from the edges. I took an Exacto knife to it and it made me feel like a kid working on a giant model piece. The fitment was good and looks OEM once painted. It doesn't come with the tow hook cover, so you'll have to use yours or source a new one. Here are pics. Enjoy!

I paid $450 to get the grill, my lip kit, lower rear bumper, fog lights, and hood scoop painted. It was 17 pieces total.

I found there are clearance issues with the stock crash bar rubbing on the new grille so I didn't fix it in or mount it yet. When my ur crash bar and fmic goes in on Friday, I should have more space for adjustments.



Also thinking about covering over those 2 triangular pieces on the sides to possibly reduce the smile.
I've been toying around with the grille for a while now with @JTMS3 help/guidance and I would not be where I'm at now without his help.. So thanks btw!

How Much did you pay for the grill?

@mazdaspeedmyk;
Would the partsgeek one look decent just unpainted in the matte gray it comes, or is there too much plastic flash that after trimming it needs paint? Just debating if i should shell out the extra for the onlinemazdaparts one. I want to avoid getting it painted.

It's fine, but you'll know its unpainted. I think it can be painted with a rattle can, since the surface area is small. The plastic flash was in the back of the insert and not seen.

I rattle canned mine originally because I was able to find mazda's black mica in a can. It looked great right away, but didn't stand the test of time, as the clear coat eventually started to flake off. I feel like it would need to be done professionally to last a MN winter.

Your pic with it unpainted didn't look bad, and since my car is black I will probably give it a shot. Looked better than the oem silvery finish imho. Thank you for your prompt reply!
