Should I black out the grill on a 2011 AW 335i M-sport?

Guys, need a little help here.

I'm about to return to my true love the sweet e92. I've owned a e92 330d and a e92 335d and yesterday I got a great offer to trade in my 2007 130i for a 2011 AW 335i M-sport.

My only dilemma with the 335i is, should I black out the kidney's?
I'm not really in to modding, the only thing I did with my current F10 was lower the ride (ACSchnitzer spring set).

Seems to be a location sensitive issue because back here in Holland I cannot find any e92 with the black grill. Then I checked the used car selection at BMW.de and found exactly...none with black kidney's. Everything stock as a rock here so I cannot check it out IRL.

What do guys think?
So sorry if this topic was already covered.
Thanks.

Yes and I say gloss black! It'll look sexier although matte would too.

Black 'em out dude. Match whatever trim, gloss or matte, that is currently around your windows. Looks great on my space gray E90 and will probably look even better on white.
