Did you get the 328i lower grilles? I did this but ended up having to dremel the passenger side so there was air flow to the oil cooler as they make them a one piece design now.
Whatever you do, DO NOT paint them... they will end up chipping
I love my Ebay lip. I too got it in a box, had to do some brief heat gun molding in the center but it fits fantastic, all the holes lined up, and it looks great IMO:
