    Looks like its a resounding thumbs down for the black and thumbs up for the stock chrome.
    I'm not surprised quite frankly, and i'm slightly disappointed with them.. although i was expecting them to clash with the colour somewhat.
    I might put the chrome ones back on tomorrow...

    I agree with the others, would look good on a darker car. Ive just (well couple weeks back) put black grills on mine (I say put, I painted em up, colour matched to my car).
    I've also blacked out the Indicators so fits in imo.
    But with your colour, the chrome does look better.

    CHROME. I find the black makes the car look older and slightly cheaper...

    My mate had a 330ci vert in black with black grills... same year as mine... parked them togehter and his looked a good few years older with the black...

    Lose 'em M8, sorry - the chrome balances the wheels and looks much classier - after all, class and sophistication are part of what BMW's are all about!

    Without a doubt they look better, I have blacked my front and side grilles on my M3.
