Front grille

I have a 2018 Touring and like the look of the front emblem of the Grand Touring (the flat, plastic covered one) much better. I can't find an aftermarket grille with that emblem on it anywhere or an OEM one. I think maybe that emblem is only on the 2019 GT's...if so would a '19 grille fit on my '18 and where can I find one?

The front emblem is what hides the radar system for the cruise control included in the iActiveSense package. The flat one you reference is probably the part for that (since a contoured emblem with faux metal-coated plastic for the emitter would probably give odd results).

You should be able to get just that part but it will be a few hundred dollars.

OK thanks, I found some chrome overlays for the bars on the grille on Amazon that might look good, thinking about it. The matte black grille just looks cheap, especially next to my friend's gloss black grille on his Mazda 3 GT.
