My logic is solid. Your poll is useless.

Grille color isn't critically important to some, but maybe to others. You can work a deal with you CA to get the color you want by them switching it when it comes in. Or you can buy the color you want and do it yourself. Still others remove them and paint them black.

That would have been a way to make the poll useful. As the feedback in this thread proves, attractiveness of grille color depends on the body color at a minimum. I'd argue another factor is M-sport trim or not as well.
