Question Grille kits

Newbie - like the board a lot...

Anyone seen a brushed aluminum or matte titanium type finish on a grille kit? Or, is this something I need to paint up myself. Not to show, just for fun.

Thanks for your help

BTW - all your posted pics have been inspiring me for days now...

I don't think there is a kit. Most likely you will have to do it yourself or get a shop to do it.

Welcome!

I think the pic for your sig is too big, you may want to shrink it first.

Also, the end of the link should be [/img] , not [\img]

That's probably why it's not showing up.

I've been saving...

Future mods include - in order:

Momo shift knob/brake handle
MP3 jukebox via cd changer emulator
Custom leather armrest with articulated platform for MP3 remote
scanning radio
clear corners (duh)
titanium insert in headlights


that's it for now... I think.

I'm not planning any mechanical mods.

I was into electronic mods on my last vehicles (Nissan Altima, Isuzu Trooper) - stereos, etc...

Also, was a long time volunteer EMT - spent lots of time and money turning my cars/truck into stealthy emergency response vehicles - complete with custom consoles, strobes, sirens, etc...

Now - I want to do more elegant mods - fitting of the bimmer.

I imagine you'll soon be able to classify me as a modder.

Welcome to the board man...

Love that quote in your signature! That movie is hilarious...

"Do you realize the street value of this mountain?"
