The OEM version your looking for is gloss black. I got my gloss black grilles from modmy3.com for $60 shipped. Shipping took five business days. Great quality. They sell the matte version for the same price.

Bought gloss grills off ebay once for my 540i, fitment = fail. With that said im a bit sceptical buying non oem

Call Marnello BMW - Ask for Parts. You don't have to speak to Mike for the discount (but i prefer dealing with him).

All you have to ask is...'what is the maxbimmer price for etc...'
They may ask for your maxbimmer username, so you should sign up on this forum: maxbimmer.com - Maranello is a listed vendor there and its a great way of finding sales/ discounts from them.

Although you could speak with other parts guys, I would suggest you talk to mike. He knows the cars and a great guy to deal with.
