New to the Forte world and wanting to know if the upper grill on the Koupe is the same as the 4 doors? I dont like the chrome on the 4 doors but dont want to paint it cause i dont thing it will last. Seen people try and paint chromed plastic before and just seems to flake off after a while. Any help would be great. Thanks

I think the OEM one that Substlestyle posted looks better....That RRM one just doesn't look good....The mesh looks cheap and it doesn't fit the lines of the hood on the top/center.

A few things to save your life! The 2010 - 2011 Forte Koup have the same grille fitment. The 2010 Forte Sedan has a different fitment as the 2011. Probably because they made the 2011 Forte Sedan and the 2011 Forte 5-Door have the SAME grille fitment. So be careful who gives you advice on a piece of grille equipment. I came sooooo close to wasting $300 on a grille and I wouldn't have been able to even have it put on my 2011 Forte Sedan.

But anywho, if I were you, I would go with the beast that I will link below. Only the picture for the mirror-finished chrome is available, but the Black Ice Chrome is RIDICULOUS! So, just look at the Optima's Black Ice photo so you can get a color reference on what it'd look like when you are looking at the Forte's mirror-finished chrome thing. Hope this helps.
