Anyone want to sell a V8V 6 or 8 bar front grille?

Someone decided to back into my parallel parked car tonight. Fortunately, the only damage were a few bent bars in my grille. Looking to replace it and will likely buy from either eBay or Astonmartinbits.com.

Before doing so, wanted to check to see if anyone on here had one they wanted to sell. Thanks!

If you do replace it and have the very center vertical support for an 8 bar grill left over, I'll take it.

Pulled it off tonight! Still in perfect shape, but it wouldn't stay put with the bent vanes. Will let you know once I replace the whole thing.

Hi Whag460203! Do you have a 6 pane? If so, I would love to buy the grey brackets from you. Please let me know! Thank you.

There are several for sale on ebay at the moment. One is fairly cheap but not sure if it has all of the pieces....

Hmmm if you're at a point where you have to replace, did you consider the grill from the V12S?

I keep thinking about ordering one, but don't want people thinking I'm trying to pass my V8 as a V12.

Artb, I don't see many on eBay. Can you help? I only found one and he's selling the entire set. If you guys are looking to buy the entire set, go to Astonmartinbits.com. They have them for a great price. I just need the grey brackets.

Unfortunately, mine is the 8 slat.

Would it fit just fine? Any extra parts required?

Astonmartinbits has two options in the 8 slat - matte and chrome. I believe my original is matte, but I'm not sure - thoughts on pictures below?

Also, would chrome go with my car? Not sure if you need matching chrome heat vents / etc?

What is the finish on the side vents? Mine is polished on both which I think is nicely cohesive.

Hello All,

I'm also looking to replace a bracket on my eight blade grille. If anyone has an extra to sell, please feel free to contact me. Thanks.
