Fitted gloss black grills

Hi all, I fitted the glosss black grills today after buying them from BMW-Direct on Ebay. I think they look a bit meaner than the chrome ones.
The old ones were quite hard to pull out too. It felt like something was going to break - a grit your teeth and cringe sort of moment!!

What do you think?

Ha ha yeah. I may have been under the influence slightly, while in charge of a tractor lawnmower :-)

Yep, they create a great contrast with the white!

Nice alloys too
