Performance or other?

Hello guys, you can find a lots of pics of my car on this forum (.http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...&highlight=E91) But have a new question.

Performance kidneys or chrom kidneys? Now i have te chroms. Like them both, but the chrom have something that the black ones don't have and the black ones have something what the chrom don't have. But is easy to switch them again if i have them both.

BLACK OR CHROM? (see link below)

Opinions?

Here's the counter argument. Chrome is usually used to distinguish a higher class of the same vehicle. For example:

-The 320i has black kidney slats, but 335i has chrome.
-Audi R8 V8 has black grills, R8 V10 has chrome.
-Audi A5 has black grills, S5 has chrome.

I guess my counter arguement would be.....My 325i had chrome, my 335i has chrome, and the M3 has chrome. Bmw doesn't really follow the same thinking.

your car already has black window trim, so i think the black grilles could compliment it well, but sticking to chrome isn't bad either, as it works nicely in the current stage with the silver wheels and euro headlights
