Hi Guys,

Just wanted the forums opinion on something.

I'm thinking of getting the Performance grilles & side sill transfers for my Titanium Silver f10 M Sport, I have seen them on white cars & they look good but I'm not 100% whether I could pull it off on a silver car & wondered what anyone thought?

well I think firstly, its what you think that counts , but as your asking opinions!

I think it would look ok, although I personally think the out of factory look is better. Well you did ask!

If it were me, I'd go for the black kidney grills instead , I think they suit silver cars very well.

I think they will look even better with Silver, i.e. Black and silver works far better in my opinion than black and white, one quick way to check this out, print in colour a silver model like yours and print the picture you have in this tread, cut the performance bits and check the outcome, this is a quick option.

I have SILVER F11 with black grilles and side sill performance stickers and it looks spot on. If I could work out how to load pictures on with my iPad, I would show you !!

In my opinion, the Performance grilles will look just fine. Not too sure about the black side sills.

I have a titanium silver F10 535i, and I have replaced the stock grill with the performance grill. This is how it looks like
