pic 3: black on left, chrome on right

hard to tell from these pics but in the sunlight, the sun reflects off the chrome and not off the black therefore it looks like its missing. Put a call into the dealer and no answer/call back as of yet (not surprising). A friend driving by the car texted me asking me if i was missing a grille and i had no idea what he was talking about but now i know.
i dont see a diff...............

Just call your sales associate and let him know what you found. They'll give you new grills. Posting on here wont get your problem solved.

Life Quality FTL... I went in there to buy in 2008... not a totally awesome experience. I drove to PA for my car. Daniels BMW FTW!!!

Got my second car from Rallye... Good experience but not up to my Daniel's BMW experience.

I see the difference quite clearly. One is chrome and the other is black.
