2006 ML350 OEM Grille

Hit a deer a few weeks ago. Had the ML repaired for $8000 at an authorized MB collision center / dealership. One of the replacement parts was the front grille. Went to pick up the car last night and the front grille on my ML350 is outlined in chrome but the majority of the grille is black. Before the accident my grille was chrome with silver and NO black. Dealership says they only make an all black and a silver black. However, my owner’s manual and the majority of the pictures on Google under images for my 2006 ML have the chrome with silver grille.

The dealership offered to take out the inserts and paint them silver. I would like the OEM version of the grille that came with my vehicle when it was purchased new.

Any suggestions?
