Grill question

I'm considering getting black grills and my car is charcoal grey. I'm worried about to much dark and a lack of contrast. Does anybody have a dark car with dark grills? How do you like the look? Please post pictures

Thank you,
James

use plastidip. cheap and effective way to get that look and if you decide you dont like it you can always just peel it right off. i did that to my grills about 6-7 months ago and its still holding strong.

My Ride: cars older than you
no plastidip, just keep the original ones if you wanna change the look back to stock. I think these are the BMW Performance shadowline ones that fit your car: part # 51137030545 (left) and 51137030546 (right)



they look like this (except I have a facelift car):
