Mesh Grille Insert Opinions

I am just getting back in to fixing the car up and wanted to put a mesh grille in where the upper grille is. I really couldn't find anything and then I found this:

customcargrills.com - 05-09 Chevy Cobalt Mesh Grill Insert Kit

I read the instructions and it says to use wire ties and put it over the existing grille. Wouldn't that look tacky? Just want some opinions before I regret buying this haha. Thanks guys.

Personally, I think it would look tacky.

Reminds me of the gay grill on the Chevy volt.

Agree here too, always find they look redneck. Might as well put chicken fencing. Well opinion you wanted, opinions you got.

Alright so what are some suggestions? Especially on eBay. If it helps the mesh wasn't going to be in silver or chrome but powdercoated black
