E90 Chrome Grill... Ehhh??

so, i purchased a Chrome Grill for my E90 and put installed it the other day. To be honest, I thought it would look different on the car. Im not exactly sure what how different I was expecting it to look, but, I dont know, I just was. Anyway, its not that I dont like it, it just that it really does make the whole front end look "different". The black grill gave it more of an aggressive look, and now I feel like the Chrome took that away. Ahhh, what to do. Anyway, just wanted to throw a pic up and get some other peoples opinion. Let me know what you think. thanks. i appreciate it!!!

Ohhh....just ordered eyelids today!!! should be here next week!!

Sell it and get a matte black grill.

Hey Josh, are you still going to Eurofest?

yea, Im thinking the black is the way to go. Im going for a more stealthy, aggressive look for my ride. Ehh, live and learn I guess. Thanks for the input. As far as Eurofest tomorrow, I really reallllly want to go. However, something else has come up, NOT THE WEATHER!! But, some important personal stuff that cant wait to be taken care of. everything is cool, but, just need to be responsible and handle some biz, so, I dont think I will be making it. Of course, i could always wake up early, and just say, FUCK IT, and roll out. haha. I have been known to do things like that. But, as of right now, im gonna have to say no.

No problem man, I'll just see you at a future meet.



Good call on the black grill. I'm sure you'll be able to sell the chrome grill. lol!

A matte black grill will suite your car better, and I wouldn't go with chrome wheels, makes the car look cheap.

yea, i realized after I posted earlier I said Chrome wheels. I actually didnt mean that. I was thinking more like a polished finish, but, now, Idk, maybe something with some black. Im really undecided. I just want it to look SICK!!! I was thinking about the M6 reps, 19'. ehh?? any thoughts or ideas?

M6 reps would look nice, they have the polished silver face and a gunmetal inner finish, for a nice contrast to your paint. Here's a clients car I detailed, this was the first time I saw the m6 reps in person and I thought they looked great, much better than in pics.

I hear ya bro. I just really love the style of the M6's. But, I am not opposed to looking at other styles too. I just want the same kinda vibe that those give off. Any ideas?

If you like the m6 rep's get them, they may be popular on here but remember this is only a small percent of bmw owners and it's all enthusiasts. 90% of e90s on the road are stock. I see tons of e9x's a day and I've only seen a handful with any mods. I think I have a couple more pics let me check.
