Looks good, but it would look better if the slats were larger to compensate for the extra space.

ha No performance value whatsoever. Purely cosmetic. I'm trying to mimic the new M4 grilles which I think look cool.

Looking down at the grill, can you see where it was cut off? Did you sand it and/or paint it?

I say yay.. Looks great in the picture.

Well it's not as easy as just dremeling it off lol.

You would have to get it as smooth as possible and spray it otherwise it just looks like it was cut out. It is pretty tho! It might be a little to open but I really can't decide! Have to try it on!
