    Well heres the thing I am in two minds whether or not to buy a gloss black kidney grill for the E90 but the problem is that the car is black. It has occured that maybe if i do this the car will be too black and would need the chrome to separate the colour a bit.

    Just wanting to have a few second opinions as I havent seen a black E90 with black grills. They only mod 306 D Turbos in NI .

    wouldnt say that tbh, my bm is silver and looks good with black on.
    also my mates red bm looks better with black aswell.
    in most points imo black looks better than silver chrome.

    black on black = stealth

    Depends on personal taste really. My car is topaz blue and i fitted black kidneys, looked awful and didnt suit the colour imo. Took them off straight away and put the chrome ones back on. They look better against silver but i'd still leave it chrome, it looks classier.
