Will this grill fit my 1998? I just don't want to order a grill that does not fit and waste my money.

Yes, it has a straight top.
The only other version of an SF5 grill in Turbo or non Turbo was the later type for an 01-02, that has a protrusion that goes with the bonnet/hood , like below:

The Subtle ones don't come with the badge. Which is what makes it a JDM grill. And they are used, you'd be hard pressed to find an SF grill for any model, new.
You are likely to get hit with a customs charge if you order from Japan.

No customs charge in the US. :icon_wink:


$140 is a killer price. Great find.

Correct, our grilles are slightly used. We have the JDM F-badges on some of them and if not, we have a few extras available to add to the grille.

Yes, our grilles are from Japan. Hence, why they are listed as JDM.
