Door tweeter grills

The door tweeter grills, do they look any different if you have the base hifi system or and Harmon professional system?

Realoem shows a different part number for the two so was wondering if they look any different?

Thanks

Im not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure that the base system does NOT have any tweeters. The base system only has round speakers in each door and big speakers under the front seats. Those round speaker grills in the doors do not have any logos or writing on them.
Harman Kardon however additionally has the little tweeter speakers infront of all the door handles. Furthermore the round speakers in the doors have a grill with Harman Kardon written on them. Hope this information helps.

Depends on the country (I didn't look to see where OP is). Base system in the US does have tweeters as does the HK system. Some other countries have another more basic system that doesn't have tweeters. Those vehicles have plastic blanks and not actual grills for the tweeters. As for the OPs original question, I don't know if the grills are the same for the two US systems. I have a base US system in mine and it's a black metal grill with no logos.

Yes I know. In Europe, the base system has no tweeters. But in the US, option 676 is standard so every car gets tweeters.

Thank you very much. I have done some research into this and it looks like the 2011-2014 models have the same tweeter grills for #676 and #677.

From 2014 the HK grills are different.
