Front bumper BMW-P - no grills?

Hello,

I recently had the BMW performance front bumper in my 2008 135 convertible installed. The install also required the air duct/ventilation kit for the breaks, which i got.

THE PROBLEM: the break ducts have tabs which are clearly there for an open grill to be fitted, protecting the duct entry from road debris. However, no grill came with any of the kits. Am i missing something???

I've seen some folks retrofit it with the closed VENT grills from the original 135 bumper, but this defeats the purpose of the ducts!

Help!!! Can anyone shed light, perhaps point to a part number i might be missing?

No grills on my brake ducts for the BMW Performance bumper, and it was port installed.
