wow Mark, that is expensive. They had it in their parts department for $185 before tax. I am guessing you got it from the sales department?
mystic, the grill is carbon fiber (or so they claim) so the color is just your standard carbon fiber color.

Daniel,

Are you sure that the TRD grille is a carbon fiber grille? If it is, well that's interesting!

It is suppose to be a carbon fiber grill, but I have not really look closely enough to check on the authenticity of the grill. I thought it wasn't real the first time I saw it, but I have to look at it again to make sure. The fact is that making a carbon fiber product such as the grill is extremely difficult due to the hole patterns. Remember that carbon fiber cannot be injected molded, therefore, a carbon fiber grill require alot of machining time to make it. Basically what I am getting at is for $200, the grill is cheap if make out of carbon fiber, but I kind of doubt it.
