Default Grill chrome

Im new to Subaru. I've been trying to find a black "bracket" to replace the chrome one on my 2008 Impreza. I cannot for the life of me find this piece or what its called online. Any help?

Paint it or "upgrade" to a blacked-out version from another model such as a 2011 WRX.

That's the idea, problem is I cant find just that piece of the grille because I dont know what its called. I really dont want to have to buy an entire grille

Unfortunately the grille is a one-piece item and lists for approximately $300.

Paint yours or find one used.

Vinyl wrap is another option and looks better than plastidip IMO. I had the chrome on our FXTs grill vinyl wrapped by the tint shop that tinted its windows and am very happy with how it turned out.
