Default Front grill question...

I now have the Autotechnica chrome overlay and I'm looking to change to a more permanent version. I like the looks of three grills, the Stull Polished Billet, the E&G Polished Billet, and the E&G Chromed grill. All of these have the same look with the horizontal fins, my question is this- ease of the install and how well does the billet finish hold up to the weather for an everyday driver? Thanks for any info. [?]

Don't know anything about grills but read this question on another board before you buy anything:

I was going to get the Stull billet grille but heard too many stories about poor fit. I've since talked to many who have installed the E&G billet and they all claim it to be a very easy install, no problems at all, and they seem to be holding up very well. For my car I would opt for the billet finish, but if chrome works better with your current mods/plans then of course go that way.

I have had the E&G billet grill for over 2.5 years, about 70,000 miles, and am extremely happy with it. Fit & finish are great - just have to bend the tabs on the top a bit to get it to pop in. I'd recommend it. [?]
My PT is silver, so the billet I thought would go better than the chrome.

Thanks all for the input. Since I already have alot of APA chrome, it looks like I'm going to go with the E&G Chrome grill. The chrome really looks good against the Electric Blue. [:X]
