I think the chief of the design dept at Chevy nodded asleep in his chair, fell off, and woke up looking at the egg crate design of his overhead flourescent ceiling lights and said "I've got it!" Or maybe he said "Let's see what a pile of ugly sticks would look like if we lined them up in a straight row."
Maybe a bit of over-statement, but I find nothing pleasing about the stock grilles on any of the 5th generation. My vote is with anyone willing to try a reasonable customizing or restyling or swapping. It's all a matter of taste, and what an interesting bunch of people the Elky owners are!!
