    Looks like an OPC grill but has been sprayed red.

    The metalic strip on the irmy grill is flat and has round 90' arc corners. On that grill the strip is rounded, just like the OPC grill.

    It's the Irmy one, the OPC has hex plastic not squares, and usually has a 'king great Opel badge in the middle - and there's no sign of this being removed here.

    i was going to suggest the lexmaul grill, but on looking at it that red one sits out quiite far. the bar also looks to me a bit more clyndrical than a flat plate of metal
