So, do any of you new 2005 owners have a Sport? I still haven't seen a pic of the new mesh grille that is mentioned in the '05 Sport package. Toyota hasn't changed the pics on their website or the footage in their commercials...they're still using the '04 pics/footage.

If anyone could post a pic of this new grille it would be appreciated!

If nobody posts up a pic... I'll snap one at work on Tuesday (off Monday for MLK Day) and post it up Wednesday around 3:AM.

IMHO.... it would look GREAT on your Blue LS.

I'll also shoot off an email to BrandSport to see if they can add this item to their catalog 8)

Is it the same mesh grille that the RAV4 Chili Special Edition in Canada has? If so, I can see if I can take a picture of mine and post it on this thread.

I discovered, by accident, that I have a mesh grille on my car while scraping frost off my windshield yesterday morning. :lol: However, I'm not sure whether it is the same mesh grille that comes with the US sports edition.

Just remember guys that those 2004+ grilles probably won't fit our 2001-2003 Rav4s. Or else I would've tried to have gotten the grille inserts from Cloud Rider designs. I like the look of those Chili Edition grilles as well. I wonder if they'll fit on my Rav?

Chili Edition


One type of Cloud Rider grille for 2004+ Rav4s..

Chili Edition
That particular grille style for the Chili Special Edition is specific to 2003 only. The 2004 Chili Special Edition has the one that I posted.

(I don't recall what the 2005 Chili grille looks like.)

The 2004 and 2005 RAV4 Chilli Grilles are both the same except for the 2005 Grille has a RAV4 badge on it.

2004 RAV4 Chilli


2005 RAV4 Chilli


This Grille is exactly the same as the TTE one in Europe (except for the TTE Badge on it)

TTE Grille:-


And also this Grille is an accessory in Japan

Wow, the 2005 looks pretty cool. Man, I wish I had waited for the 2005 Chili... In addition to the 2004 features, the 2005 comes with power moonroof, sports pedals and the new grille. :roll:

Of the three years that Toyota has offered the RAV4 Chili, the 2004 is the least well-equipped. The 2003 comes with fog lamps.

Oh well, I'm happy with mine. :D

Man, it's like I died and gone to heaven seeing all those Ravs with the hoodscoops. Okay, where's that pic with the mud bogging taken and how can I get there?!?! That's what I've always wanted to do with my Rav besides being the daily driver. :D :D Cool info with the grille, EHinthe604. Now, I wonder who I can contact to acquire that particular part. Any Canadian aftermarket stores that sell oem parts that you know of?

No unfortunately, I don't know of any sources of OEM Toyota parts in Canada (or at least here in Vancouver), aside from the dealers and the Western Canadian Toyota headquarters in Richmond, BC (a suburb of Vancouver). I'm still a relative newbie with Toyota OEM parts. :)

If you move your mouse on top of most photos and do a right click ---> view properties... you can in most cases track down the source. 8)

Unfortunately I use the SBC net browser and not Netscape or IE cause I always ran into problems with those browsers and Outlook Express. The SBC browser doesn't have the view properties option off the right click. Plus, I never really saw how the Copy Shortcut option that Mensajero told me about to work since the option never seemed to be ready for use when I right clicked on a photo whether it be IE or the SBC browser.
