I would keep the original

Hey Bimmers,

I recently gave my car for replacing the rt. front grill because it was broken. When i got my car after replacing and went home, after some time i noticed that they have fixed the chrome slat grill of 330 in my 325.

I want your opinion
1. change the other lt. grill to chrome
2. change the chrome to original black.

chrome grille makes the car more executive, classy. black grilles. i find make it look more sporty. one contradiction to that are the m cars which all have chrome vertical slats ie e46 m3, e60 m5 and new m6. i chose the chrome grille in the end.

I don't think I understand what you are asking? Is there something wrong with your grill? Any photos for visual aid?

Well, I had a similar predicament to you.

I blacked out my grills - but then they chipped slightly. I was fixing them, when my sister came flying in and drove over them.

I didn't really have the choice as the dealer only had chrome ones in stock - but I like them!

Here is a little pic to help the decision:

I just changed mine to chrome. If you want to change your chrome to black, I'll sell you mine cheap. My car was only a few weeks old when I switched it.

part of it depends on the color of your car. i think the chrome slates go nicely with light colored cars such as silver and white. i also agree that the black slates look more sporty. since my car is sg and i now have cf front lips, i've opted not to change my stock black slates.

I will keep this in mind. I'm ordering the car next week... so, I'll send you a PM at that point.

I agree with what everyone's said on the chrome looking more classy, and the black looks sportier. Sporty is what I'm going for.

Am I reading this right? You now have a chrome RT side grill and a black LT side grill?

With the top pieces blacked out the NOW looks like it has something of a snarl.
