front bumper grill

Hey,

does anyone have any info on getting the bottom part of the front bumper (the part holding the fog lights) painted? or coated? to a brushed titanium look
can this be done? and how so?
pictures anyone?

Thanks.

hmmm.. People get it done to a matte black, but I dono about brushed titanium, unless you get it painted, your best bet is probably the silver race mesh grilles which IMO are ugly.

Just go to Tischer and order them (I believe you can order black or silver), remove your bumper and replace (Instructions via DIY forums). Will cost you ~$50 and a couple hours.

No doubt, Irony abound. I've paid to have mine blacked out, and some want to have theirs silver? A slight turn-off if you ask me, blacked out look goes much better with this car.

328 does not have an oil cooler. 335 does.

The 328's passenger grille is not cut out for ventilation on the oil cooler (passenger) side.
