Where to buy Glossy Black Grills for e90?

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
Does anyone know where I can get Glossy Black Grills? There are a lot of sites with Matte Black and Carbon Fiber, what I"m looking for is shiney black ones, or painted jet black ones.

Thanks!

You can always try to DIY.
I did mine like that, but with a matte-black finish.
Shouldn't be hard to put a glossy finish with some clearcoat or something like that..
Besides that, I have no idea

Well you're supposed to prep the piece by sanding down the chrome, so its got this brushed aluminum look.
I've had mine painted for a while & there's no problem with it yet & that's without a layer of clearcoat.

what i did was buy the matte and painted my Monaco Blue, but i brought it to respectable body shop. I would do the same; buy them for like $60 new, and it would cost like $40 to paint it or DIY for like $12.
