Any plans to swap out the OEM chrome grills to match the Gloss black accents?

Thanks! Just doing so additional touch-up right now. A couple of small places I didn't have enough K1, so I am forcing it in with a plastic razorblade. Kind of tedious, but it will be perfect when I'm done.

I had the grills all black for a while, and it looks cool in certain lighting (like at night) but kind of dull in the flat lighting we have 80% of the time in Pittsburgh. So I actually put the chrome trim back on to add a little definition to the front end. While it doesn't match the shadowline, it does match the 220s, so that's my thoughts on design cohesion there.

Thanks for the heads up on the plate - yah, was just lazy today and I don't even know why I really do it to be honest. Seems like there would be a number of easier ways to locate my car or me if someone really wanted too...I have a gun and a shovel people : )
