Where did u guys get your double slat grilles in gloss black?

I bought some Auto Tecknic ones from amazon, and the quality is good, but they are matte black, which i'm not digging.

Looking great!

Where did you buy those double slat grills! My Carbon Black F10 is on the way and would like to do this mod.

I have a set of gloss double-slat with the 3 color bands brand new and never used/installed. I'd let them go for $40 shipped. Also have the OEM chrome that I'd let go for $30 shipped in case anyone is interested.

I put the gloss double-slat w/o the color bands on and was satisfied with the look, although at a point I did want a splash of color up there, but have since changed my mind on that.

I just switched from matte to the OEM gloss, I think it matches my other parts much better. Gloss is shown first...

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but what grill did you buy?

I want to finally get a black grill but all the ones on amazon have poor reviews. Is there a better place to buy them?
