Are you guys/gals feeling this?

Hamann Black Grill Trim Kit on a Steel Gray 330i?

Also, I am intending to have the black moldings painted early next week along with the newly arrived M3 lip spoiler and ACS roof spoiler to match the car. If I got the black grill would this be kind of backwards? Getting rid of the black molding trim only to add the black grill? Your thoughts please?
