Default Gauging interest: buy in on the Tribeca Chrome Mesh Grille

see this link for item description
https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/p...oducts_id=1115

if we could arrange for 20-25% discount

would there be any takers on this item?

we'd be interested in setting up a small group buy if there was interest.

Just let me know

thanks

I want this badly. However, $500 is still too much.

Good idea, but SOA really is overcharging for this thing.

Okay... just thought I'd toss that out there.

Wish there was something more we could do about the pricing.

Dealer cost on this item is ... well.. it's a lot

thanks all.

You are getting *three* mesh grilles, though. It's also a quality product.

How about getting us a deal on the puddle lights? That might be more in the range of something we'd be willing to shell out for.

Thanks for thinking of us Jamie, very considerate if you ask me. I'm not interested in the grill myself. I think the puddle light install was pretty easy:

and I have to say, even thought I feel silly when I say it, it's one of the cooler things about the B9 IMHO. Kind of sets the car off a little more from the crowd. I also think it's a functional mod as well. I know my wife likes being able to see around the car in a dark parking lot when approaching. kuoh may have a good idea. I'm not sure how many people you'd need though for a group buy. If it flys, I'd suggest also posting on

Just a thought.

For anyone interested, I have the '07 SE which comes with that grill. It really changes the look of the front end. Pics do not do the grill justice at all. It is very sweet.

I'm not a huge chrome fan myself, if it were black I'd consider it

painting it black would be very easy. I have the mesh on my DGR. It's hot hot hot! definitely changes the look of the car.

In my experience, painting stuff that goes on the front of the car ends up chipping and looking pretty bad after a few months. The cost to paint it properly would make the cost considerably more unfortunately
