Need to "borrow" Kidney Grills for E92!!!

Can anyone lend me a pair of kidney grills (dont care what colour) for an E92. Im fairly sure that the M3 grills are the same as the all the E92 3 series?? I dont mind if they are damaged etc - as long as they fit. Reason i need to "borrow" them is that im aiming to get mine sprayed and they need to be off the car for about a week - and as i use my car daily i cant drive around without grills!! I will obviously pay for all postage and return them in the same condition as i am given them. If anyone can assist me i'd be most grateful.
Many thanks. Steve

I have some chrome ones you can borrow, also I have some matte ones that I would like to have sprayed too. Are you going for gloss black by any chance?
If so I would be happy to pay 1/2 the cost and postage too!

Funnily enough - im having my original chrome finish kidneys sprayed MATT black!!!! I considered spraying them and the other bits gloss black but ive decided to go with a MATT/flat black theme throughout.
Steve748 - i will take your chrome grills if the offer is there.
Or.. Kin you could just kindly give me your matt ones!!!?

http://www.plastidip.co.uk/......its a spray that turns to plastic once it drys and it lasts foreveror so they say...cant be sure because my grill havent seen forever yet but so far so good......

if i ever have any problems with the way they look in the future......ill just take em off and respray....the stuff takes about 30 mins to dry and looks gooood.
