Changing to chrome grille on E91 320D

I've got the regular black and chrome on my pre LCI 320DT.

Many change to all black grills, but I like the all chrome look as used on the 6-cylinder pre LCI cars better. I belive these would look good on my Le Mans wagon with silver rims. After some research I've found this nicely priced grill from Ebay.

Is this the same as the original grille? They don't look alike to me?



If anyone has closeups of ebay aftermarket grilles, both chrome and black chrome, please post your pictures.

I'm thinking about the half inch at the bottom of the vertical "lines". It looks like the Ebay ones has a change in the curvature, while the original ones are straight.

It also looks like the lines in the original grill are thinner.

Btw, the pic below is an original grille, if that was unclear.

hmm yeah that is a tough one. I have an LCI E90 so I am definitely not the expert on the issue. hopefully it is a reputable seller!
