red and bue stripes on grill

I'm sure ive seen, but can't find on google images, someone painting fins on their grill red and blue to mimic the m sport logo. I thought it looked quite tidy, anyone got any of the pics cached anywhere so i can have another look before i fit my black kidney grills?

mine is an e91 so similar era would be nice.

most of them are actually vinyl stripes. overseas in thailand etc china they sell them for like a 1 on ebay delivered! or you can buy from UK seller and pay a little extra to have them sooner which they probably buy in bulk from Asia

I've put some on mine about a month ago from ebay for about 1.50 for three sets.

Just make sure that you clean the grill up before sticking them on and use a sharp craft knife to trim the vinyl so that it's only on the front face of the fins. I've had a few people ask about them when I've been out and about.

from the lack of love in the thread and this comment, im thinking its not a favoured mod.
am i confusing the difference between M Sport and actual M cars here?
