I hit a bird recently and it cracked (I have attached a picture) my grill and I am trying to figure out if it can be fixed or not. The dealership quoted me 1.5k for a replacement. But I found some on eBay for around $400-500 and I found one on the land rover parts department site for around the same price but there is no picture just a black and white drawing and it looks like 2014-2017 models grill. So I don't know if I should trust.

Poor bird-that’s a shame. First, don’t go near the stealership for anything other than warranty or recall work. It would probably be better to post a picture of it cleaned-up to see the extent of damage, but consider purchasing J-B Weld as an inexpensive first option. You may be able to achieve a reasonable fix. However, if you don’t like the look, there’s tons of cheap grilles on eBay-easy DIY replacement.

As for DIY, is it a pretty simple swap? I've been looking online for videos and can't find anything for a 2018+ RRS.

Check the PowerfulUK YouTube channel. They’ve swapped everything on an L494. Otherwise, should be easy to figure out just by looking where it attaches with the hood up.

Yeah, I've searched Powerful UK up and down and nothing. Just older models. They used to have an aftermarket grille for the 2018+ but it's no longer available, and it seems there's no video either. I assume/hope it is pop a few fasteners out of the top, then give it a tug, but just looking for someone to confirm it's not much more than that.

Very simply to do. Only tough part after removing top screws is giving a good pull on the bottom tabs. Shouldn’t take you more than 15 mins. Also eBay grilles are just fine. Powerful UK and Victorious Automotive have most of the parts also. Fitment and quality is similar to OEM. You can pop off your old emblem and reattach with 3M double sided tape.
