    Nutkin i have bought the same grill, as you know the surround on this is a matt silver and only require's a light sanding just apply some primer and paint.

    A matt lacquer will make it much tougher.

    I got it from ebay around 12 months ago from a seller called partsdepot_uk

    but the black ones are the ones that are out of stock or unavailable now .

    Just bought this grille also but from a different seller. Its genuine Votex.

    Hows it fitted?

    Do you have to use the clips from the original grille to fit this new one? There doesnt seem to be any fixing tabs

    It clipped straight in the bonnet , the badge is a bit of a fiddle to clip in and you need to push the clips in to the new grill supporting from the rear with a screw driver or such like to make sure the badge /circles clip home properly , you will see what i mean when you do it
    the only other thing i did was used polyurathene sealent / adhesive to reinforce the badge mount a bit as i felt there was a bit too much movement in it but the slight mod made it all good
    what ive written sounds bad but its all good really and hasnt gone tatty or anything since fitted and does fit well as you can see in the picture
    hope this helps
