    I saw one for sale on eBay the other day. Think they are called Kamei grills.

    that's not the one that the OP asked about - it's a mesh one whereas the OP asked about what is essentially a badgeless grille, as in http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150282466936 (same price just about). i got my badgeless grille from this seller and can recommend.

    as for the bonnet release, this badgeless one came with a handle that you have to poke through the grille to activate the lever. that was a bit too fiddly for me so i carefully bent the lever so that i now reach it from below the bottom lip of the bonnet (i.e. between bonnet and bumper).

    i have a mesh grille as in Blue_Thunder's link that i could sell - been on the car for about a month and i prefer the badgeless one so going to go back to that. could do it for £18 delivered, if interested.

    Cheers for the info everyone.

    Yeah I'm really after a badgeless grill with the horizontal fins/louvers so that it matches the bumper grills as I'm fitting the standard ones again after I've trimmed them to fit with the FMIC.

    I'll probably go with this type http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150282466936 and modify the release as brendan mentioned.
