    That one
    That top grille would look well with black wheels.

    Personally I like it, it is not too OTT like the DR520 grille which is totally matt even with the three pointed star in matt black.

    I was thinking on my car in grey with the black vents and carbon mirrors it might look quite good. I might try it with black film and see how it looks....

    They both look good but I'd go for the top one as it'll stand out more

    I presume the facelift grille won't fit, besides it's £150 whereas some black film and a steady hand is £4!!
