VW Jetta Front Grills (whether they be replacements of overlays) are the most common exterior appearance upgrade that Jetta owners will do. That’s because compared to other exterior appearance upgrades like body kits and spoilers, replacing a Jetta’s grille is usually quick, painless, and doesn’t require painting. Also, the simple upgrade usually leaves the vehicle with a completely different look.

While most Aftermarket VW Jetta Replacement Grills can increase performance a bit by allowing even more airflow, they are not generally considered a high performance upgrade. Basically it’s just a looks thing. Change the look of the grill and your entire front end is transformed into a different vehicle, setting it apart from the thousands of other Jettas out on the road.
Replacement Jetta Grills are the most common type of grill and require you to completely remove the VW grille from your Jetta. These types of grills can be the hardest type to install since they require undoing several tabs and/or screws, and then fitting the new grill in. They usually have the advantage of being more securely attached and having more of a stock flush look to them.
