OMG vuvuman67! That looks awesome. I'll be ordering mine shortly. I'll get my wife to buy it for me for my birthday! hehehe!

Was the SS emblem easy to attach? Can the bowtie be attached also?

Thanks! I used double sided tape for the SS, so yea it was easy, The bowtie can be attached also. There is a another thread about it here somewhere.
I think it looks cleaner and meaner without it though.

What color is the grille when it is delivered? I noticed a lot of people are getting them painted. My SS/RS is black so I'm wondering will I have to get it painted?

I don't get it?

So whats so great about this heritage grill? Everyone has been waiting months for this thing and this is it? Really.....This is what all the fuss was about! IMO the stock looks just as good.

If your going to upgrade the grill than I think it should look better than the stock unit. At least a stainlees steel version or something.....this is a dissapointment of an upgrade if you ask me.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. Why come in here and be a wet blanket?

The heritage grill looks great guys. Gonna be hard to wait and see if ZZ's grill looks better or if Revolution ever comes out with something.

Just stating my opionion and wondered if anyone else felt the same. Wasn't trying to get anyone's panties in a bunch but it looks like I did.

Sorry but try no to be so sensitive about opionions. Believe it or not everyone doesn't like every mod available. Just becasue they have it doesn't mean it looks good.

Guess I just click the back button when I see something I don't like. Not the type to rain on people's parade plus I don't have time to opine on every thing I don't like. Hope you find something you like. Maybe you'll like Revo's grill or something.

Actually I did find something I like, E&G stailless steel mesh grill. Just giving my opionion as it seemed so many people were waiting and waiting on this grill including myself and when I saw it I was dissapointed with it myself.

Anyway as long as you like your grill than that's all that matters.

Peace

I really like the Heritage grill; IMO, its way better looking than the stock one. If you disagree with me then you have no taste and you're stupid; LOL only kidding. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Thank god. An alternative for the ugly ass stock grill. I may be interested in the new Camaro after all.

(Sorry, just my opinion. I hate the stock grill. Ruins the whole look of the car for me.)

the heritage grill looks AWESOME!!! I have to agree with the post above. I didn't like the stock grill, but I liked the rest of the car so much I forgot about how much I didn't initially like the grille. The heritage grill looks like it's going to be one of those "must have" accessories for me!

When I first saw the Dale Jr GM concept car with the heritage grille I knew immediately it was for me. I do like the factory grill fine but heritage better. Now, regarding the stainless bars referred to earlier I see them on pickups, suburbans, and all sorts of other cars. Better looking than most of the ones that come on some of the vehicles but very COMMON. Like Yogi Bera said, "when you come to a fork in the road, take it". Its great to have choices either way with the heritage grill, OR Not!! Thanks GM.
