Looks good. I've placed an order for black grills as well. Damn you guys!!!!

Prior to that I called BMW and asked for a price thinking well if its a few bucks more I'll just get it now..... was told "Oh they are $130, would you like a pair?"

"Uh? you mean that's $130 per grill??"
"Yup"
"Umm... no I'll just order from the US thanks - even the OEM ones are about half the price"

Wonder if there any noticible difference between the OEM and aftermarket ones
