    Opinions on this subject seem to be divided, you either love em or hate em.....
    So bought a second set of grills so I could spray these and revert back to original if I didnt like it (or more importantly messed it up).
    Pig of a job to get them out but a little perseverance paid off
    So......what do you think?

    they suit your car imo
    and it is just an opinion the important question is which version you like the most
    if we all liked the same things this world would be a much blander place.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    That looks mint mate - I'm thinking of doing the same on my silver E46 Compact - have mucked about with some pictures in Photoshop and MStyle do a set for not too much cash so may be worth a punt.

    And as Mark said, if you like, who cares what other people think!

    Thanks for the replies, agree with you, each to their own, I like em
    Thought i'd see what the general opinion is & hopefully.... help those that are thinking of doing this so they can see what they look like.
