Title: European i30 2012 to 2016 GD Grille retrofit
Post by: peppp on January 14, 2020, 08:41:48
Hi guys,

I was in doubt if I should ressurrect an old thread or make a new one about this subject, hope I've done the right thing.

So in order to replace this :

to this :

(https://i.ibb.co/8KsJBrN/newgrille.jpg) (https://ibb.co/98gJvbc)

can you please confirm if the bill of materials is :

1 - 2016 grille
2 - Impact foam
3 - License plate support

Am I missing something ? Does anyone have information on the impact foam and license plate support part numbers, please?

Thanks!

You can find complete kits for retrofit on eBay, the price is usually about 200$  :)

You can order both updated grills here  :link: 2012-2017 i30-Elantra GT Factory Grill - Shark Racing (https://sharkracing.com/2012-2016-i30-elantra-gt-factory-grill/) they come with the surround, just need the number plate mount and foam absorber.

This impact absorber only fits the premium grill above

PASRT NUMBERS WITH ...A5800 belong to premium chrome grille, but regular chrome (as pictured in the first post) and subsidual parts go with ...A5600 part numbers  :neutral:

If only Craig, if only....

Portugal has some shitty customs policies and I cannot safely order something from the outside the EU without risking it having the item held at customs for what can be months sometimes. A long time ago I decided I would not risk it anymore, it can get very frustrating.

There is one thing I haven't tried yet, which are those parcel forwarding services... does anyone know of a reputable one in the EU/UK that would forward a package from South Korea?

Anyway thanks to everyone, this thread has become very informative !!

@peppp if you are maybe thinking about ordering new or used parts for retrofitting grille from Europe, part numbers are going to be a bit different than Korean  :)
