would have to agree with the grill mod by Bradwhite.... quick easy,(if you know how to solder, unlike myself) so it took longer and not as good looking....
look up Custom Grille by Brad White......



had to buy a little extra stuff but around $30...

And I painted the vent bezels to match the seat covers, and steering wheel cover.

how'd you get the bezels out?

mod: cup warmer delete
Price: FREE
Time: 1-5 minutes
This mod helps to make sure you never get out of your car with a drink with the cup warmer (A.K.A you cup holder) stuck on the bottom of it

1. take the cup holders out
2. remove the screws under them
3. poke the screws through the rubber holder
4. put the holder back in and screw then tightly back town
5. SLAM A BIG GULP IN THAT B

^^^^^^The center and right side bezels just pop out (carefully). The left side has one screw holding it in. You loosen one trim panel, and the screw is accessible from the outside.

Remove the things on a hot day....much less chance of cracking plastic. Remember mine is an '06......earlier/later models may be somewhat different.

My latest cheap mod.....this one is free, and just takes a little time. A full-recline mod to your front seats. LINK.

The bezel with the hazard light button and 2 vents, does that one just pop out? Because I wasn't able to get it out the other day and my car set up is exactly the same as yours.

^^^^^Yeah. Do it on a hot day, or use a hair drier to warm up the plastic. That'll keep the plastic from cracking. A little help from a thin paint scrapper (carefully) or something similar should do the trick.
