    2015 Base Grille for F-Sport Grille Swap Out

    Has anyone swapped out their base model front grille for the F-Sport? I just bought a non f sport CT (didn't have time to build) with all the features I wanted...minus that beautiful grille. I found the OEM parts at:
    Upper grille, 2014-15, W/F SPORT for 2015 Lexus CT200h 5311176040 Confidently order now with confidence.

    From the diagram comparisons, it doesn't look much different than the non f sport. Also been combing through the threads with no success. Any help in the matter would be appreciated.

    It is a direct swap. The base model bumper cover and F-Sport are the same. You just have to cut out the opening for the splitters/fog lamp covers. (just to slide the tabs in). The bumper cover already has the cut-out diagram on the back. I bought upper and lower F-Sport grilles and r/l fog lamp covers (splitters). I'll post some pics once it's all finished.

    Awesome! I took a look at it and it seems that the whole bumper needs to be removed. Just haven't found the time to pull it off yet. Look forward to see your finished product.

    Just did mine with OEM F-sport grills. Such a better look. Only took about 2.5 hours.

    Hi Emery,

    Any tips you can give us to overcome anything? Did you have to do any cutting?

    I have the sport grille at home waiting but I haven't gotten started, yet. I may try to get the sport foglight bezels and some Halo fog lights before I attempt anything just because I assume I'll have to take the bumper off and I would rather knock it all out at once.

    I'm trying to find someone that may have swapped out the bezels so I can verify that there were no issues. I'm getting conflicting stories when I look at parts online.

    Happy New Year! sorry for the delayed reply.
    It was pretty simple.
    I used this write-up to remove the bumper: https://www.ct200hforum.com/forum/le...-write-up.html
    Removing/replacing the grill from the bumper was easier then the above write up.
    Good luck and keep us updated.
