I agree! Glad my Scat Pack came with the black grill. Definitely a better look IMO.

That's a good price based on what the dealer quoted me. I had a little "incident" with a parking bumper almost a month ago, and while they had my bumper off to repair a broken bracket I inquired about swapping the silver to black grill. They said the part was $180+labor or I could have them shoot it black for about 1/2. I choose the latter option then for economical reasons. If I had known about Speedlogix's price I would have popped on this instead.

Still, love the black grill look! I am going to get the black fuel door here in the next few weeks as well.

Seems like it would be easier and cheaper just to tape it off and paint over the silver stripe..

Cheaper, yes. Easier, not sure, but it's been done before! For my former 2011 I bought this Mopar one and then painted it flat black. :thumbsup:

Swapping Grilles

Do you have the Silver Grille Surround on your 15 Challenger and would rather the Black Surround? This Genuine Mopar kit will be just what you need!




To Order: Mopar Black Grille Surround 15 Challenger

Thanks
Mikey
That grille looks awesome and I've been looking to swap my silver grille on my 2015 Challenger for the black one. I was just wondering if you knew how to remove the original grille in order to replace it.

You will have to remove the whole bumper in order to get access to the clips that hold the grille in.

Had this done last night. I installed original Mopar glossy black grille surrounds. The guy who did it used the risky method of removing them using a flat top screw driver and a piece of flat plastic. All safe, done with only one clip broken off both the old chrome surrounds. I know it was risky, but i just couldn't insist on removing the whole bumper assembly (as is the proper way). Guy does this for a livin', their shop specialise in SUVs and sports cars. He told me this is how to do a challenger and he said the key to it is being gentle and patient.

Awesome!

Thanks for the feedback, post up some pictures when you get the chance! We would love to check it out.
