    I would get some smoked indicators and stick with the black grills, but then again I would as I've got black grills on a Topaz too

    Heres my take...

    The silver looks better on your car, however, to make the black ones work better than the silver ones with your car, I'd suggest getting your alloys gloss blacked too. They (the wheels and the grill frames) would compliment each other and look more subtle, that I do believe would work very well.

    Nice car though

    Cheers for all the comments guys...

    Mawey, I have to say that looks cool with the black indicators.
    BMW177, cheers, you're right, but i've never been a fan of black wheels.

    Well the chrome grilles are indeed back on. A comparison...



    So, a pair of black grilles for a facelift E46 4 door (or touring) up for grabs. Any takers? (i'll post an add in classifieds)

    chrome ftw i reckon, suits your colour, black looks ok but the metallic makes chrome look classy

    I saw a wicked looking black e90 335i earlier on the M6. Had smoked rear lights, tinted windows and black grille. Bit too gangsta for me, but I thought it looked cool

    Emaps remapped

    Choice to go back to chrome suits Topaz blue. I have a black E90 with Black BMWP Kidneys and it looks mean and moody but its's taken me a while to get used to it - kind of miss the chrome in a perverse way!

    The chrome ones look better on your car imo.
