I just ordered a radiator cover from ebay, and I used a can of flat black spray paint to color match it. The clips should be in stock on partzilla or availiable at a local dealer. Literally waited months for a replacement my dealership ordered, ended up asking them to just cut me a check for the part in November which they did..

I think the main reason for these blowing off, is most people don't realize that there are 3 clips on the underside of the scoop, that are supposed to lock under the top of the honeycomb piece. It's a real pain in the ass to get the front lower hooks and the uppers latched under the honeycomb, but once you do, that sucker isn't going anywhere. Just my 2c

I just looked. You are correct. I can almost guarantee mine was not clipped correctly. And it is a pita because of the forward lower slot connection design.

After painting the replacement, I drilled a hole behind each clip and put a zip tie through it just in case.

Not sure how to confirm 100% if their center clip was latched in or not in hindsight, but either way still think this at it's root this is a design flaw worth correcting. Super common issue, and I'd imagine a fairly easy design fix.
