This doesn't answer your question, but I went with the matte black grills from jlevi and did it myself (with some late night help from picus via pm's) and mine looks great. 0 chance of chipping for roughly $100 shipped.

you can get black grilles off ebay for like 60 i think

painting it yourself will definitely chip so i wouldn't recommend it

DON'T PAINT THEM, just suck it up and buy the black ones, No hassel and you won't have to ever think about when they chip and re-doing them

tendrix had one set of black grills for the e92 before he started stealing money.

i ended up with that set hahaha!

anyways, im located in SB for a couple weeks, then going down to LA, and if u guys want u can bring me your grills and for a fee ill paint em. Ive done a few and its quite easy, i can do polished black or a matte. let me know
