My OCD is kicking in with the SS badge. I think it looks fine but like the SLP version better.

If your car is Pewter make sure you do something to black out the pewter behind the grill. If it looked like this it would drive me nuts. image.jpg Even if you spray some plasti-dip back there.
However that's just my opinion. I did the RK sport grill on my pewter Z
