Buy my matte grills. Only on the car one week and 65$ shipped out the door! Don't mess around with Plasti-dip, it's gonna chip up with all the rocks and road debris....I've seen it happen on my friend's ride. Get em black from the manu....
These are the same high quality matte black grilles for 2011+ E92/E93 from **********s!

^ Agreed. I got mine for $50 bucks shipped on eBay. Fit perfectly and took all of 5 minutes to pop on.

LOL my grille has been dipped for months and has not chipped. even painted grilles can chip from rocks and debris.

who cares if plastidip chips, it doesnt even take a full can to dip the grille and you can re-dip when ever you want. you get the SAME look for 6 dollars vs 65 dollars. lol

I have performance grills and replaced the center slats with the stock chrome ones. On a silver car, I think the contrast looks amazing!

I originally had matte black grills purchased from a vendor on this site... ditched those pretty quick as I thought the matte black look a but cheap.

Thanks, My bumper and aero lip will not fit on your car as you have the LCI with different headlights etc. Maybe look into an M-Sport LCI front bumper.

Don't listen to this OP.

Save yourself $60 and paint them yourself with either plast-dip or regular paint. Easiest mod you can do.
