    Yep, just doesnt look right.
    You right about the bottom part maybe needing a respray too to match it. Thats another thing that put me off.

    Below is the photo used on the sellers page. They don't look like what I got do they

    Think I'm just going to stick with my standard silver trim ones.

    That one in the pic looks better. You know you could spray your chrome ones black. Painted my E46 ones in satin black with a clear coat on top

    Yes the one in the pic does look better. Amazingly the seller reckons they are exactly the same.........I think he needs to go to Specsavers!

    He's agreed to give me a refund, less the delivery charge though.

    Yeah I found a link of someone who painted his chrome grilles. Seems striaghtforward enough to do. You have any pics of what your e46 looked like?

    I think I'm going to leave mine alone for now. Looks good the way it is. I'd really need to get some black ones in same style and see what they look like before taking the plunge.

    lol...that was the link I was referring to.
    I didnt pay that much attention though to the respray part.

    Yeah looks good on that e90.
    Yeah I might do it at some point, but no rush

    I think the black looks good, but not too sure about the curved slats

    I like the black grille look a lot, but have to say I don't like them at all!

    They look like half closed window blinds.
