Thanks for your reply.
I agree the price is over the top, however, I have noticed that prices on Aliexpress are also becoming extreme.
The chinese workers have awoken and are demanding better wages, immigration to the cities from the rural areas has all but stopped, this is causing labor shortages.
$500AU for a Mitzi replacement grill, about $620AU for the HasePro grill delivered to Aust and as I don't pay Aussie GST tax on car parts, I will get $62 back after it's delivered.
So the prices are not that dissimilar.
If I get the original grill the problem of the frosting stuff being chipped and or wearing off will just continue, no issues like that with the new look grill.
