Raul why dont you P.M KillBilly who is another UK member he just got a black grille for his car if fact its the same spec as mine exactly see what his was like for quality, he is the guy that told you how to take the grille off the proper way on this thread but most of the after market black / carbon style grilles I seen over here in the U.K are pretty good quality

Hi i did my grills with primer and black gloss .
Quick sand down with some wet and dry .
A good wash and dry to remove any bits of dust ect.
Spray on the primer two coats and leave to dry as long as possible.
And this is what you get.
Spray on the black gloss,in various directions and angles, i used 4/5 coats but use as many as you have time to do.

I will try and do this tomorrow, considering that I already have them out and don't plan to use chrome again. If I am not satisfied I will go with the new ones.

So I finally finished painting them. They turned out decent but if they chip I will end up getting the plastic ones. It was worth the $8 attempt.
