    what colour is your car?IMO black grills suit white/red/silver and black cars but can look odd on other colours.

    Instead of painting why not buy some black ones and then you can swap back if you want to?
    Tbh I'm wondering whether to swap mine for black or not as the grille surrounds are the only chrome bit on the car.
