RL and TL grilles 2009-2012

Does anyone know if the 2009-2012 TL lower grille moulding is interchangeable with the 2009-2012 RL. They look identical but price difference is about $200. I see on acura site parts #'s are different, but that could be acura's way to get you to buy the higher price. Has anyone seen if they would work. I actually only need the lower grille moulding trim, mine is peeling. thanks

and also does anyone know if 2009-2012 TL wheels will fit 2009-2012 RL. for the RL to be the flagship they put some ugly wheels on it.
mine came with the 7 spoke wheel. I like the TL in 5 spoke . want to know if anyone has put them wheels on RL. the specs are the same, the only problem i would see if they are able to clear calipers on RL with no mods, anyone. thanks

I would not expect the grilles to be interchangeable.

Don't know about interchangeability between RL and TL wheels. But it is worth mentioning that 2012 RL wheels are functionally superior, due to a tuned Helmholtz resonator encircling the inside that cuts tire rumble a reported 15%.

IIRC, the centre bore size & (possibly) pitch circle diameter is different between the wheels.

Get some black chrome wrap & re-cover the trim piece - it's not worth the cost of a new bit.
