Hey Dan..The best way to get the color you seek is to remove the insert and paint it said color..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.

I think it would be pretty hard to get one in a specific color, and very expensive. These parts are all made the same. I agree with you that the light gray doesn't look too hot. Painting does work very well. I painted mine black and it looks great.
