Performance Grills - Pre LCI

Sorry of this is a daft question but where do people get their performance grills from? I've looked at some for sale on ebay but not sure of the fit or quality:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/salberk-pe...kAAOSwqYBWoMID



If anyone has part numbers that would be great as far as I have discovered they come in 4 parts (2 for each side)?

+1. Read of lots of fitting issues with eBay replicas - you're safe with an OEM part...

I bought some matt black ones off eBay and they fitted perfectly to my E91.

Recently I just swapped over my matt black ones for some gloss black ones which I bought from eBay too and again I cannot grumble over the fitment. Happy enough with how they look on the car.

I've had look a genuine BMW ones and they're something like 88 whereas the Ebay ones I have linked are almost half the price, the fact they're a German seller makes me feel like they should be a decent product?

get them from SSDD motorsport mate, just recently bought the pre-lci matte black ones. The fit was fine, ordered in the morning and turned up next morning. I believe ssdd grill slats are slighty thicker too which look better imo.

I fitted some cheap ebay ones. they didnt fit as nicely as the OEM grilles, but they did clip in and look fine.

Having compared them to my brothers with genuine ones though, i think the genuine ones look better.

The slats are a different shape, and look neater on the genuine ones.

Yeah, I prefer the thicker grill slats personally

Cheers guys, SSDD look like a good place to start.

Anyone bought their Angel Eye LED upgrades?
