    I purchased these black grilles for my e90 few days back. I finally got round to putting them onto car last night. It was dark, so couldn't really see what they looked like.

    I finally got to see them in their full glory when I got back from work. I'm not too sure what I think to be honest. i think it's cos the grilles are not straight, but slightly curved instead.

    What do you guys reckon to them?

    At moment, i'm thinking of trying to return them...

    I see that their trying to follow the lines of the bumper lines but it looks a bit.... strange...........

    Straight is the way forward i think...

    They're different. Individuality, right??

    IMO, they don't look too bad.

    I've seen worse...

    Yeah exactly. Maybe even if they were straight and going diagonally to follow the bumper, then maybe it wouldnt be so bad.

    Yeah before i bought this, I googled other e90s in same colour with black grilles. I thought they looked alright, but they were of the 'straight' variety
