I removed my Chrome with Grey grilles, separated the inserts, sanded them with 600 and painted just the inserts with Gloss Black paint, for plastic, and kept the chrome ring.
This is a very easy mod and cost $8.00 vs spending $100 plus on new. You too can sand the chrome rings and paint them also, gloss or matt black, your preference. I like the Chrome/Black contrast look.
