Has anyone painted this?

I was looking at the front of my car after putting on the black chrome grills and the piece below the bumper really stands out, and not in a good way. Was wondering if anyone has painted or coated this piece?

IND does them in gloss black (for the front and rear mesh) to match with the gloss black grills (I'm sure they can paint any color you want). Your problem is that you got the black chrome grills which I don't think they can do. Contact them and see.

We are able to paint the lower mesh partition high gloss black or body color, however, you are correct that we are unable to match the BMW black chrome finish
