A lot. It will never compare price-wise to plastic. Aluminum is expensive (compared to steel & plastic) and custom fabrication is expensive. If cost is a factor I would say forget anything other than plastic. I currently have two grill designs in development. I am working on an aluminum version of the OEM grill (see pic) and a water-jet cut Wolf style grill.

yeah, I figured.
I love those wing vents that Jason had made up so if he made a grill like that it would be on my "wish list".
The reality is that you need to balance the maintenance needs with outfitting/"bling" needs and it's going to be a little at a time for me (cosmetically).
Design, testing, fabrication, organizing all takes time and money and some of the custom fabricated items done by vendors and members is truly amazing and no doubt worth the money, just not cost feasible for me.
