What Grill to get......

Ok, So heres my dillemma, I hit a duck comming home from the city and broke my *soon to get painted* altezza grill. There is no trace that I hit it, so I cant claim a wildlife insurance claim and the deductable is more than the grill. So Now im left with a couple options. I have a 2003 SSM Coupe.(Keep that in mind)
I could either:
a.) Order the Civic Ferio RS Grill( I like how it looks, plus the rs doesnt bother me at all, and it comes pre-painted silver.Plus no one around here has even seen one before.)
b.) The kaminari grill.
c.) Altezza grill again and get it painted this time(dont wanna cause I see more and more people with this grille)
d.) OEM grill and get the h cut off and it blended to look like the kaminari grill
e.) Put the oem one back on(dont really wanna)
I dont know what to do, and just so you guys know, there are about 5 or so done up civics around where I go, so it doesnt take much to stand out.

Too lazy to search .. have pics of the first option?

Don't listen to Gearbox.. he's already sporting that grill

But do what you feel like .. I know I wanted the altezza grill last year, so this year it'll eventually get put on (now that I have it).. sure its a little overplayed now, but still

Go there to look at it. I really like it, cause it has the lip with black in the centre, and all the real stuff. I personally dont like having any "style" stuff.

look at post #5, its 179.99 usd. Now I know some of you will say its alot of money and not worth it, but I do have the money for it, and its not a big deal to me. I guess Im leaning towards the rs grill.

rs grill is really only for sedan. i'm sure it would look good, but some people would call it rice.

i need to see pics of your car to say for sure. go with kaminari or stock if your car is stock. If it's modded with black stuff, go with painted lip tezza. If you have some jdm type look, go with rs.

^yes its JDM, but 4drs are only JDM. |NOT coupes. i think its worse than putting a honda emblem on a RSX.

I dont think you read what I said. I know my coupe isnt jdm, I know the grill is jdm, Im not getting it for that reason, and why would it be bad to put the honda emblem on a rsx? Cause its ultimately made by honda in the end?

I didn't look at what forum this thread was started in and the first thing I thought was "this guy is going to buy a new grille to cook a duck that he hit with his car???" That's when I realized how retarded I am, and I don't even know why I'm telling y'all this.

OMG..... That was truly retared. LOL J/K. You get 3 for that one .
BTW U seem to already have ur mind made up on the type of grill u want. It is ur car and u know what u want. Get the RS grill its all about making ur car custom so I would think its ok Me personally I would just buy a newgrill and buy brightest head lights I can find so I wont hit another duck. J/K

LOL< actually my mind has changed again and its set now, I was thinking about it, and you guys are right, It probably would be a waste seeing how as I have got rid of most of the stuff on my car. So seeing how im going for a clean oem look, Im just getting the oem one repainted and get the ep3 red h for the front and dc5 red h for the back.

awww. i think the oem grille looks silly. well, not so much on the coupes, but on the sedans it looks like vinyl siding or shutters or something. too bad that rs grille is so expensive.

did you know possum is short for opposum?
