Opinions on grills for 330d SE coupé

Hi guys,

What are your thoughts on the best colour of the kidney grill for a 330d se coupé in titanium silver with 189 alloys.?
I've been looking at: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/07-09-BMW-E92-...item3ca71eeab0

and also: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/New-BMW-E92-E9...item3ca72f5c1f

quite like the black chrome.

Cheers

Don

Hmmm, I always think that a BMW without silver vertical slats is either not a 6 cylinder or a high[er] performance car! Keep with the silvery jobs out the factory!

Grills to match the shadowline look good IMO! Pretty sure there's at least one person on here with that combo...

As long as he's a reputable seller and recieves good feedback consistently there is no problem. Not THAT much difference in a rep grille and an OEM one from what I can fathom, except for the price!

I bought mine from that same guy, results:





I'd say go matte black. Black chrome looks too shiny IMO on silver car.
