RaceMesh grills?

Anyone have RaceMesh grills? They are pretty pricey - just curious how the polished black chrome mesh would look on my carbon black 550i xdrive Msport. I'm probably going to go with the M grills but would be interested if anyone had any pics of the RaceMesh grills, especially on black or carbon black vehicle.

I just did a google search on "black racemesh grilles bwm" and came up with some pics of the black grill on a grey E60. I really don't like the looks of Racemesh grills. They completely change the look of the car, and not for the better. They look like something you'd see in conjuction with 22 chrome rims, glow lights and a coffee can exhaust.

I vote not just no, but heck no.

I don't hate them, but as Terpinator points out, they change the look of the car and make it seem...cheaper. I don't think you can beat the OEM grilles in either black or "chrome".

No offence to OP since everyone's got their own preference about their car, but it's going to look hideous. At least we can all get a good laugh when you get it and put up the picture here

It doesn't look good.....gold car, black upper grilles and painted/chrome lower grilles?

Yes, people should do want they want to their cars because it's their car......doesn't mean it's going to look tasteful or good, though.

Ok, another vendor selling ghetto looking grilles, and they don't even have an application for the F10. Hmmm, why again did you post this???
