    Im looking to get some black kidney grilles for my coupe, i've had a look on ebay but they all seem REALLY expensive.....why is this?

    I'm thinking of getting matte black and i have a titan silver coupe, anyone know of any cheap sites where i can get a bargain.

    Also i'm not going to be painting my originals as i would like the option to change back if i dont like them,

    thanks guys

    How much are you wanting to spend?

    M Style do a set for around £35, whch I don't think is too bad. I bought mine from e-bay for £29, again which I didn't think was too shabby.

    I wish I could find them that cheap, all the ones I've seen are between £45-£60 bloody quid....there just plain black or matte no carbon fibre.

    I think that ebayers have cottoned on that people want such an item obviously & upped the price grrr :(

    Like he said, M style: http://www.mstyle.co.uk/acatalog/BMW...MPS_BROWS.html

    If that's too much for you, could try finding some stock ones in a scrappy and painting them?

    I had to buy 2 sets, as one of them didn't fit... Be careful when you buy as some can be a dodgey fitment as I found out and couldn't get a refund as the item was not broken/faulty in their eyes ...

    Mine are Matte Black

    Thanks for the link I'm prepared to pay for these the eBay ones at the moment are rediculus.

    Are these matte or gloss black I can't really tell from the picture??

    What do you guys think would look better on a silver beemer?
