**********s sells both matte black and gloss black I believe.

http://www.**********s.com/BMW-Perfo...MW-E90-E91.htm

For Pre-LCI just select '06-'08 in the drop-down list. The extra cost is for the additional hood trim pieces.

You can also paint them yourself if you want: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3830

Plasti Dip !!!

My opinion, just take off your grills and hood trim apply a FEW coats of plasti dip (there is a how to, in DIY Section on how to remove Fairly easy). it comes in a spray can/ its pretty cheap and can be removed later on down the road. Plus i got gloss black grills and they got all dinged up, this way you can just re-spray if they get dinged. if you decide to go this option be sure to practice spraying the plasti dip,, Good luck and Welcome to the fourms.

The BMW Performance grille (found HERE) has perfect fitment as it's a genuine BMW part. Personally I'm a fan of matte black grilles on most cars. Our ECS Black out grille (found HERE) has great fitment and are solid black plastic so scratches and ships don't show!

I picked up a gloss black grill from Tischer for my E92 and installed it in less than 15 minutes. It is great having them local.
