...or is it the dark anthracite color that matches some of the trim pieces and anthracite wheel color option on the car?

In this picture of the OEM black optics grill, it looks like that anthracite color.

I forgot to specify that I’m inquiring about the pre-facelifted gen 2. I don’t know if there’s a difference with your facelifted car and whether they’re black while the pre-facelift are anthracite.
Lucky for you my father in law has an 18 V10 plus with the oem black optics grille and as the name suggests, it’s black haha

For reference... I guess there's an OEM anthracite one as well as a black one. Forward to 10:55 in this video and you'll see where they run into a dilemma where they realize the ordered grill is dark grey rather than black.

Any more pics of your car? Mine is Vegas yellow too and I think you just convinced me that I have to do this mod asap.
Mine seems to match side grilles, but i don't know if it is OEM part or not as the previous owner did this upgrade. Might be an aftermarket part they got, either way fine with me, looks way better than the chrome in my opinion.
