Yeah, that's a BE/BH

the BD/BG grills have a top panel that is flat all the way across, and extends back ~2 inches, and a post on either end in the middle (vertically) An OEM grill will also have rubber strips ont he outer edges to mate with the lights.

Nice find for BE guys though......

and if you get it, and it totally doesn't fit becuase it's wrong, lemme know, I'll buy it

FWIW, the BD/BG performance variants were the RS/GT, GT-B, respectively
the BE/BH were the B4's.....
so the B4 logo cinches it

Yup, it's for the BE's.
I got the same one and it fits like a glove. Looks much better than stock.

How much did you end up shelling for one of those? I'm just trying to ballpark this. I like that grill!

I think I paid about $150 a year back. I bought it from an I-Club member (Yugi) at the time. I think he had it on his B4 back in Japan. It was used but still in mint condition. Took about 5 minutes to install.

Sounds about what I expected. However, upon closer inspection, I see that the grill isn't a whole different then the ones we have now. The middle portion is painted black (which I've already done in place of cutting the whole thing up for a mesh grill). Looks pretty good too. All we really need to do is swap out the center badge and place the B4 emblem.

I wonder where we can get those two items?
