I went on line using the search words E & G grills for PT CRUISERS and found this site; www.CARiD.com/Car-Grills.
Because it was an 11 page print down to get the image I didn't do that for you. For all intents and purposes though if yours is a later model it'd be a neat chrome mesh grill. If yours is an earlier model it'd be similar to SOOO BIG's grill. The only differential I note is that SOOO BIG's grills finish with the grill bars all the way out to the end. The E & G grill for the earlier model finishes with a chrome ending similar to the original plastic grill. See attached. I'm very satisfied with the one on SOOO BIG. It has sentimental value also as my son Steve gave it to me after being on his 2000 AQUACRUISER PT for all these years. You can see how well they hold up!
Perhaps if you have no other success in finding this grill new or used you could have a Forum member order a new one for you to be shipped to you. Good luck on your search and the costs if you can't get one in the UK.

A bit too British for my taste. To contrived. too much like "Gilding the Lilly". We have too much of that premise of change for the sake of change.

Now that's just my opinion. It wouldn't end up on SOOO BIG, but then again he has plebeian tastes. He's not at all prone to ruinin' a good thing.

In my humble opinion the worst PT styling mistake Chrysler made was the second generation front end style change. With the cut off half grill and the notched headlights it fades away from the retro style of the earlier models.

I'm sure a lot of PTers favor the later style, so to each his own. Don't want to open up a hornets nest!

while im sure that is your take I drive a 06 and ME I like the second gen the bumpers are molded into the car and look like they were not a last second add on the headlight thins is kinda hookey but its what it is we are all different and usually we like what we drive to be honest id love a really nice 2010 PT GT with a 5 speed and all the options but as we all know that car dose not exist so we do withy what we got
Id still love a PT front end with the big grill make mine into a panel van and lift it up and put a nice set of 31x12.5 16s on her and some how put a Mercedes CRD motor in her but probably just a dream
ptprice and LionPT like this.

The fourth one down is the one you are looking for...I'm sure the shipping will be horrendous! You may want to call to check that they are still in business, and that they actually have one.

And don't mind PTPrice's comment

to thehoghunter, I took a peak at the site you referred on your thread. Some of those are "finest kind". SOOO BIG also approves.

And to cruiserdad1976, your right in pointing out the pluses in the later model Pts, I whole heartedly agree with your exceptions. You do know that a stock earlier Pt front end'll bolt right on your neat 06 with just an exchange of headlights and you'd also gain the right to Fog lights with the right MFS.

Sorry Blondie, you Brits are OK even though you drive on the wrong side of the road. Don't forget you gave us your mother tongue even if we've screwed it up.

No offense meant, just wanted to stir thing up a bit.
