Angry Ooops, wrong grill - to keep or change?

Hi All,

Just after a few opinions. I accidently ordered the wrong matt black grill and was going to send straight back but now it is growing on me, Im thinking about keeping it.

Question is, to reorder the top grill, or keep the one I have which is the second picture.

Im normally very decisive but can tell if it makes the car look cheap

Grill I originally wanted:

Grill I ordered and may keep:

Muchas Gracias in advance

My vote is go for the one you opriginally wanted; logic being...you wanted it for a reason. You don't order a Big Mac and walk out with a Fish-O-Fish

Ah, you dont know me, as I would walk out with both

I thought the same, its not what I originally wanted so return. But the thing is I hadnt looked at the other grill before ordering so it never became part of my thought process.

Too much choice = harder decisions

I don't really like this one. It looks like an E90 moustache feature. The reason the moustache was done away with for facelift E90 and never used on E92 is that it's universally unpopular.

return it and get the one you want!

Original, that top part is just so wrong. Spoils the lines, unnecessary clutter.

Really dislike the second one if I'm honest. First one looks a lot cleaner.

Cheers for all the opinions guys! I have ordered the grilles I originally chose. Decided I want the car to look as OEM as possible with a few subtle mods to differentiate it so the moustache has to go.

MEGA, I'm not even going to comment on that picture

Ha, MEGA is that you?!

Glad you went for the original choice of grille. That bottom one looks crap!
