How do you like your Fig grilles? I've been looking at changing my upper and lower grilles for a LONG time. I'm undecided.

If anything I recommend a direct clip in replacement. The fog light lower grille fit perfect. The vent grille takes some adjustment to make it to ones liking. I just wish Scion made a fender liner vent behind the vent to tunnel air to the brakes like on Lexus, some Subaru's, and BMW's. I bought this kit because it was made for our boxes with fog lights.

The top grille didn't bother me like others. The vent and lower grilles bothered me because of the lower different designs. I wanted something different yet subtle not extreme and the kit got the job done.

Sounds like a project to me....

Update:
I do notice that the vehicle is a little bit nosier from all the extra air running through the bay. The only major exit I see through the vented grilles are between the hood and the windshield. 3 days later I was driving on the freeway at 70mph. I suddenly heard plastic rubbing loudly. I pulled over to find out my fender liner, on my passenger side, was shredded. When reinstalling all the under trays I noticed how torn up, from the previous owner, where the bolts and screws were placed. I thought nothing of it. Now considering how much air flow is traveling through the vents, I guess it finally gave in. $50 later all is new and now I need to relocate my H.I.D. Ballast and my voltage stabilizer because they are located in the fender area on my driver side. I would hate for the liner to come off and having the wires get wrapped in the axle causing some serious damage.
*Note: Make sure fender liner and under tray is in good condition.

dude, that thing with the fender liner happened to me too. It was because when I put the liner back on I had it on the outside of the bumper, so air was getting under it. It's not due to the vents. Once I got the new liner in and made sure to reinstall it properly I haven't had an issue.
