Bought to replace what I assume was the OEM grille on my 2005 Icon, as it was bent and quite frankly rotton.
The only difficulty I had was removing the old grille, which took about an hour due to rusty screws and brackets.
This grill sits further back than the one that was on previously, so much so you can't really see it. I chose black as I have a black car and don't like the 'shiny grille bling' look, so the fact it sits further back is a bonus. To note though; I have a few holes and bits to clean up from removing the old grille which are now visible.
The two bolts are easy to locate with a socket extension or a spanner. It's probably a good idea to put a bit of grease on the bolts when putting them back on. The hand drawn instructions which were supplied with the grille however, left a lot to be desired.
Assuming you don't run into any problems you are looking at about 10 minutes to fit.
While I think the item is of a good quality and I had no problems, I think it is a little overpriced.
All-in-all, very impressed. Great service and delivery from mx5parts as usual.
