    beau has black grilles on his silver 330Ci and they look pretty cool as does the rest of his motor Clicky. His car would'nt last 5 mins round my way though with all the bloody speed humps, lol.

    In the end I voted for too incongruous because it's a lovely word and I've only just found out what it means.

    in·con·gru·ous
    adj.
    1. Lacking in harmony; incompatible: a joke that was incongruous with polite conversation.
    2. Not in agreement, as with principles; inconsistent: a plan incongruous with reason.
    3. Not in keeping with what is correct, proper, or logical; inappropriate: incongruous behavior.

    i think they might have worked with darker wheels, like a gunmetal colour etc but now the kidneys look a bit cheap, i think chrome is better on a blue car.

    body colour bump strips would look good i think

    it goes rather well with the bumper mouldings. imo, if the mouldings look good black on the blue bumper, why shouldn't the grills? keep it black, mate! :thumsup
