    Hi Guys,

    I've fitted some Genuine BMW Performance Gloss Black Kidney Grills to my car today.

    I like the black as it goes well against the Gloss window trim found on sport's and it matches the bumper strips and I think the car has more of a meaner/moody look to it.

    I thought I'd post pictures to show you guys and ask for your opinion too by adding a poll.

    black looks really nice and yes you are right it does go well with the window trims..was it a d.i.y job? if so what gloss paint did you use,did you have to primmer and how did you key the chrome .?

    @Tyson,

    It wasn't a DIY Job, I got them from my BMW Dealer, it's from the BMW Performance range and the fit and finish is as you'd expect from BMW.

    They only offer it for Facelift Saloon and Facelift Coupe's however.
