I don't object to the OEM grill, but I'm interested to see what this one looks like installed. If you would, take a few pics share.

Hard to believe the grille from a 2010 Accord is the same as an Accord Crosstour.

Waiting for pix.

Remember, you get what you pay for though...

The eBay page mentions that it will fit an Accord Crosstour and an Accord sedan. I'm not entirely sure how that's possible, though.

This item fits all vehicles listed in this table:

#1 - its an ebay seller that sells cheap aftermarket parts

#2 -


vs



(little bit of a size difference there, similar shape yes...)

#3 - Probably copy and pasted 2008-2010 Honda Accord vehicles and Crosstour happened to be in the mix...

#4 - Sorry its not fitting in advance

#5 - Sorry your going to be stuck with a shipping back the item fee

#6 - Hopefully paid by paypal with your funding source as a credit card so you could reverse the paypal charge easily

#7 - wait for a Street Scene Grille or T-Rex grille to be made

I'm afraid you're probably right jmj...
I'll probably just try to re-sell it locally to an accord owner...

I was a little harsh sorry...

You know, since the seller has an error in the listing, he should eat the return shipping... OR you could just not accept the package at all, that way it will be returned to sender, and you could mark your paypal account as not accepting the package etc...


(ebay sellers like that really get me PO'ed)

Ahh...I really should know better since I'm an experienced ebayer with lots of transactions, but there were amazingly inexpensive items available for the Hyundai line of vehicles that I had great luck with... Oh well, I may try your refusing the package idea or just re-sell locally...In any event it's not that much money, just the hassle...
I'm still waiting for Cloud-Rider to make one, but they seem to be scaling back lately....maybe business hasn't been too good? They had a very good quality product in past grill inserts (mind you they insist on not covering up any auto emblems, I guess to keep in the good books of manufacturers)

Yeah...I'm not sure about it either....so I guess I'll be the guinea pig:eek:
Way to take one for the team!!! We all thank you!:D


based on the pictures in the link posted it looks like this kit consists of multiple pieces that cover up the "fins" in the grill. This could explain why it fits the CT and Accord Sedan despite the difference in grill sizes. Just a guess.

Why do you want to replace your grill, I love mine, as a matter of fact, I think that the front is wicked.

What is it that you do not like about it?

I prefer a custom grill in all my vehicles....also I like to debadge vehicles of any emblems if I can...(keeps 'em guessing<G>)

BTW....I contacted the seller and asked directly if the grill will fit as stated....they got back to me saying that no, it won't and they didn't say it would....I returned an email that said, it clearly stated that it "would" fit and that I'd be refusing the shipment....
He then got back to me and is claiming that he checked and "yes" it will fit....
...seems they don't know much about what they're selling....

Ebay sellers like that literally copy and paste "fitment" information from a catalog and list an item on ebay. Don't know what they are selling... They probably saw in their catalog that the product fit a 2008-2010 Honda Accord and copy and pasted 2008-2010 Honda Accord's from a type of vehicle list.

I used to have an ebay online store that specifically only sold to Nissan and Infiniti. It was very successful since people knew we were "specialists" and offered quality items.

Some of these aftermarket grills reduce the amount of air passing through them, watch out how tight the grille holes are..

Some aftermarket grilles really look great though, Personally, I prefer factory parts if I can use them.
