How am I just now seeing this thread after all this time. I'm going to be in for one. You still have a code available?
Code is on its way!

You have to take the bumper off again to install the zipties, Sadly
I would hate to have to take off the bumper for a third time :/. Once the radiator cover and weather seal are off, their is no way to access the clips?

You can reach, If you have smaller hands its possible. My hands are large and it bothers me to try it.

Here’s mine installed. Plasti dipped the chrome emblem.

Pretty big/noticeable gap at the top. No gap with the OEM grill before. If you zoom in you can see the clips on the bumper at the top. I’m going to go the zip tie route. Fingers crossed I don’t have to take the bumper off again.

Edit to add: The grill 100% will not stay attached to the clips at the top. You can pop them in (using a lot of force) and as soon as you release pressure they pop back out

That's pretty much a deal breaker to me.

When you hear about front grilles, you usually think of them as just a styling add-on. This new PRO Design Mesh Grille, though, definitely can help add to your 2016+ Civic's performance. This Gloss Black painted direct-fit grille features a very open honeycomb mesh design to allow for maximum airflow. This is especially important on 10th Gen 1.5L turbo motors, which can get quite hot and start reducing ignition timing (and thus power) as a result. In addition to providing much better cooling, this grille offers a sleeker and more aggressive look for your front bumper.

The grille looks great in person and seems like 10th Gens could have come from the factory like this (at least on Hatchback and Si models).

Key Features:
  • Direct replacement grille, not just an overlay. Also includes side pieces (eyebrows) that install above the headlights.
  • Not just for looks: this grille allows a significant amount of extra airflow into your engine bay, which helps prevent heatsoak and keep your engine running at full power. This is especially useful for prolonged aggressive driving or track use.
  • Made from high quality ABS plastic.
  • Includes a new genuine Honda emblem and push nuts for a complete installation. You cannot reuse your factory emblem since it will not fit on this grille.
  • Easy to install.
  • Gloss Black finish.
A forum discount is available, so PM me if you're interested!

Could you use the SI logo on this grille?

All my tabs are fully engaged and still big gap
Can you PM me a picture of the gap, looking straight down from about a height of 4-5 feet above the hood? That will help me determine what is going on. Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey everyone following this thread, I'd like to let you guys know about an awesome write-up a forum member recently did regarding the root cause of this gap issue, as well as two great fixes for it.

Please see https://www.civicx.com/threads/front-grille-coming-apart.3495/page-20#post-625234

The diagrams and pictures he provided are especially useful for understanding why the factory bumper & grille tend to produce this gap.
