Retrofit lci grill

I have an 09 E90 and retrofit a pre-lci m3 front bumper. However, the shop I took it too was afraid to miss with the bumper to make the Lci grill fit, so they placed the pre-lci grill. It was in shop for too long so I decided to take it as it is. It doesn't bother me too much but I want everything perfect. Anyone know a shop or someone that's confident of doing the job? Located in the La area. Thanks!

Thank u for the recommendation I did take it to them but they told me it would be less of a hassle if I sold it and get the lci bumper. Anybody else?

Follow what LTMW said. There's no other way to make it look right. Or I guess you can do a pre-LCI conversion and get a pre-LCI hood and grille.

I was thinking of getting a pre-lci CF hood, but I like the LCI grill look, and didnt want to do a pre-lci conversion. I can just keep it the way it is, it doesnt look too bad, but when you know something doesnt look right, u would want to fix it in any means possible haha

Anyone else know a body shop that can do the work? Its a matter of just modifying the grill area in the bumper
