    I rather like the idea of replacing the chrome kidney grilles on my e46 with black ones - on a black car I think they would look far cleaner.

    Having read a few posts about them, I have gathered that they are availale on eBay as after-market parts and there is always the option to sand and spray the originals. However, I am always a little circumspect of after market bits, particularly buying mail order as there is no way to check the quality. I also like to have the option to return the car to standard, so would prefer to keep the originals.

    So, does anyone know if the black grilles for the E46 Coupe were available as a genuine option? if so does anyone have the part numbers for them?

    Also, does anyone have any pictures of black grilles on a black post-facelift e46 Coupe?

    Cheers

    I can understand your concern if it was the likes of ebay but why not check to see if Euro Car Parts or GSF do them?

    There's a lot of stuff they don't advertise on their website for eg they sell powerflex bushes.You could even try the dealers may or may not be pricy though or you could try BMstyling
