Bimmian sells them for $180 matte or $213 for gloss.

Here are a few threads on the subject with other options:

Highest Quality Matte Black Grille?

Just put in some Matte black grills that I have had for months sitting in a room.

Easiest thing I have done to my car so far. And was $65 on eBay.

Are you limited to eBay only or something? Why not just order from Bimmian?

How did you get the paint to stick on the chrome? It may delaminate if not prepped properly.
