Talking Grillin It

Ok guys i just need some opinons and also want to know what some of you guys are doing with your grills.
I have a black 00 coupe and want to get a new upper grill and im looking and seeing two types of grills the mesh ones and the honeycomb plastic ones. which are nicer and what do most of you use? i also thought about painting my oem to match my car and get black/chrome emblems. either way most of the grills on here look nice and seem like there painted, kinda just curious about what most do. id prolly paint mine regardless of what style i go for.
thanks

I got the one piece honeycomb type r grille from eBay.

I dont like the mesh because my last 2 grilles were mesh and it kept on getting loose so I got the new type from eBay.

And I left it the gloss black that came from the factory
