I want to replace the front grille on my '08 Type S with the '09 Type S grille (not sports grille). Called a nearby dealer in Essex who claims that it isn't possible to fit the '09 grille on '08 models because the shape of the bumper and headlamps has been changed.

Now I'm pretty sure this isn't the case, atleast to my eye the grille opening on both models looks exactly the same....I doubt that Honda would be stupid enough to change things by few micro millimetres.

I think the replacement should be possible.

So the question is which one of us is talking nonsense? Him or me? :-D

(p.s. I've been through all the threads with instructions on replacing the grille but there is nothing for the 09 Type S so started this thread)

It can be changed. Sounds like your dealer doesn't want to sell you the part

Thanks guys.

By the way, the price I've been quoted is £175 (non-fitted). Does that sound right?

Need to call a few others (including the ones on Civinfo) and see the best price I can get.
