Where did you get the black grills? Did they come with the chrome surround.
They are a seperate part and do not come with the surround
Have you sourced the other bits yet e.g. plastic mounts for the fogs?
This is being looked into
Will the facelift foam inserts fit the premium bumper?
I have not tried it yet, I am quite sure the foam inserts for the MG7 and Roewe 750 should become available soon, it is a matter of waiting for the first ones to arrive and seeing what is what
There are more bits needed than meets the eye
There is also the case of the fir tree ball and socket fittings and the bumper mounting brackets for them. These seem universal, I am waiting to see if any changes have been made to the MG7 and Roewe 750 mountings

Will the fir tree ball and socket be a problem if the original bumper is used?
These are quite easy to remove from your original MkI or MkII bumper, and fit to the premium bumper. There is a slot on the bumper aid precise re fitting of the bracket to the bumper, it has been and is still not quite warm enoug for me to be using adhesives on the foglight fittings, but I am looking at bumper repair adhesives and fillers to use as an adhesive
I wonder if the foam inserts are still available from Xpart?
You can but try

Where did you get the foglight fittings?

Might be a daft question, but I can't quite tell from the photos, but which shape fogs go in the premium bumper. Is it the MK1 oval or the Mk2 circle style?
Hi Ian. The premium bumper is designed for MkII fogs, but with a little modification to the mounting bracket, MkII fogs can be fitted. I actually have MkI fogs on my tourer
if they are MK2 Can the fog light fittings cannot be moved over from a MK2 ZT bumper?
