Quick search on Ebay turned up a number of options from China.
Search 'cx-30 grille'

Cannot endorse any of them but at ~£26 probably worth a punt?

Looks like they stick in the spoiler space with tape.

I just had a looksee on my car - the openings are blocked off either side with a flexible air dam, then louvres in front of whatever cooling element sits behind, provided you don't block the louvre operation should be good.

The pieces available are aftermarket (nothing made by Mazda) and only cover the sides with license plate in middle. Some use 2 sets and cut them to fill in the entire space. There are a few other threads already going on the subject. Here are a couple including how I screened mine to protect condenser.

Either way it is pretty much of a 'do it yourself' job (or find someone you know that is handy to do it.

From the pic, looks like a tidy install!

I ordered mine from Amazon. They went in really easy. They come with 3M tape, I ended up using a zip tie to make it more secure. I was very happy with how they came out. I ordered the 320mm version. There were some that claimed the 300mm leaves a gap. Not only does it look great, but the added protection for your rad makes it a must have purchase. My last car (Nissan) had a similar gap and ended up with a rock hitting and puncturing my radiator.

Here in Alberta we only have rear license plates, non on the front. Has anyone used two grill kits and cut off a piece of one to attach in middle of the other kit’s two pieces to make one long piece? What adhesive did you use to bond the three pieces? Any pics? Thanks

Or, you could just fill that gap with a 'fake' license plate...

Randy, seeing as you are in Alberta, how about something like ...


...? ha ha. :)
Hi Chu
Good suggestion but could be dangerous 😬 Calgary Flames fans might get perturbed 😱
Thanks

a member did that, I think they posted a photo. That material is extreme light (I have them on my car), so any glue that handles plastic would hold it together without much problem.
Check out this thread on the same subject, might be something there (that's what the search feature is for 😃)

Looks good, same thing I did.
I still wonder why no one is making a grille that would fill the full bottom opening?
I half suspect from a suppliers point of view that that would make quite a large package which would incur substantial higher shipping costs (and consequently a higher probability of damage). I suppose they could split in half but then it won't look right. Is there a large enough market to justify the high cost of the product in comparison to the two section unit?
