Yeah but I doubt it'll be hard to find replacement grilles if you need them in the future! I'm not a fan of the whole blackout theme but your 7 is looking nice from your pics above :thumbsup:

If the problem was fixed with the replacement then you have some other issue causing the problem, or the used ASK was a few months away from failing when you bought it.
