where to buy gloss black kidney grills (2008 e92 msport)

If you have shadowline (gloss black around windows), then gloss grills look better.

You could get them sprayed, if you can be without grills for a bit. Sometimes good to hang onto chrome ones if you want to return to OEM.

Yes, they are gloss black.

For prices, just call your local dealer or drop a PM to Anneka (our 'resident dealer') - Anneka @ Sytner is her user name.

Ok will do,
Was considering painting stock ones, but wasnt sure if it would look the same as performance ones, and how long it would last as have heard after a few months the paint starts to chip?

I had them on my LMBlue E90 but went back to the OE grilles, it's down to personal choice really. Didn't take any pictures sadly :-/

At a rough guess they're about 32 plus VAT less the forum discount.
