Don’t even have my Genesis yet, but already looking into some cosmetic mods. Came across these on eBay, has anyone tried these yet?

I just out the page and only have one concern about the stock speaker grill holes lining up with the metal cover holes so they over lap without blocking the stock speaker grill holes. The sound quality may suffer if the holes are not properly aligned, which many aftermarket part rarely do to stock parts. Therefore, I will pass on the covers since I like my sound quality as is.

Did get a message back from the seller, he states that they are in fact aluminum not plastic.

I bought the tweeter covers, but have not installed them yet since it involves, imo, removing the door panels and disassembling the speakers from the backside of the door panels. (Fyi, those speakers are actually mounted to the door panels, not the inside of the door like most cars I have dealt with in the past.)

I say remove the door panels because I could not see a way to pry the existing covers off from the front side. There isn't enough room around the outside edges of the covers to get a pry tool in there. Plus, even if they could be pried off from the front side of the door panels, I could see there being leftover adhesive/tape from the stock covers around the speakers, which would need to be cleaned off so the new covers are flush with the door panel. And scaping the leftover adhesive/tape from the grill pocket in such close proximity to the speaker itself would make me nervous. One little slip and that speaker could easily get punctured. Hence why I think the safest (and maybe the only) way to install them is via door panel removal.


Interesting... I'd buy them if they're aluminum but if they're plastic, it's just going to make the car look cheap.

Yes, I can confirm they are aluminum. They look to be very high quality also.

Yeah, that was my other concern. Are these grills acoustically invisible...
Again, they do not go over the existing covers..... they replace them. I would not expect them to have any effect on the sound transmission versus the stock pieces.

I'd be worried about the center dash one making a nasty reflection on the middle of the windshield....

I don't believe anyone (on this site) has these installed. Not that they've made known at least.

Not sure if anyone besides myself has even purchased them?!

I think they come on 2018 and newer G80's as standard. They really look a lot classier than the black grills.

Not sure when, but I'm definitely going to give them a try sometime. It may be Thanksgiving or Christmas time before I have the time to devote to this project, since I would want to do all 4 at the same time and it's going to be a learning experience taking these door panels off and getting the new covers on.

Following! Any luck on finding covers for the bottom door speakers as well?

Reviewing the Ad, it seems to imply that these simply adhere to the surface of the existing black covers. Will it significantly impact the speaker sound by doing so? Hoping someone can test this out

Per the OP, they do not stick on the existing covers. Read the earlier comments about it.
