Driver Side Air Vent Broken

Hey guys, need to know how can I repair a broken air vent on my 14 M6 Gran Coupe, or if there is an alternative method I can use to make this look better.

You could get a new or used one and replace it. I've read the removal procedures before (from the new TIS website) and it doens't appear to be that difficult to replace.

EDIT: found it in less than 10 seconds...here's the instructions from the TIS: https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f...tlets/F9BrVAOf

If you look up the P3 gauge install it will probably show.

Here ya go...there's preliminary work that needs to be done before you get to the air vent...that info is also posted below:
  1. remove the side panel,
  2. remove the decorative trim,
  3. then remove the air vent from the decorative trim
