M-Tech II bumper

Thinking of getting this bumper for my car but am struggling to find the middle section grill to go in there. The original one.
Does anyone recommend putting other grill / mesh in there unstead? Or just hold fire and keep looking for the genuine middle section? The fog lights don't bother me at the moment, I can pick them up pretty handy

Any mesh of the appropriate size will be just about indistinguishable from the original at more than 2 feet away....

I have been thinking about replacing my factory ZHP part with a custom set of mesh with the letters ZHP shadwoed into it. Might be willing to part with mine. It serves no real function that I can tell other than looks so anything should be suitable.

There are a couple sites that sell the mesh, I Googled BMW E46 race mesh once and found a site that sold them in stainless steel, gloss black, etc.

Not sure about factory-style ones though.
