Default Front grill insert clips broke - how to fix?

Someone parked way too close and pushed in my front bumper so that the clips holding the grill insert to the bumper fascia broke. So now the bumper doesn't sit flush with the grill, the grill hangs over the bumper a bit.

Given the clips physically broke off, and I'd like to avoid buying a whole new grill, any suggestions on how to get it back to sitting flush with the bumper?

Those little clips are all that holds it down under there. Not sure if you could do something with zip ties or double sided tape. Aside from that you might need a whole new grill

You could re-use the emblem and "wings" form your current one.

I'd recommend spending an extra $70 and getting the sport grill.

I know, I've been wanting one of those since I got my car. Friggin exchange rate for Canadian dollar makes it not so nice a price.
