New style diamond kidney grills on F10

You can find them for $45-$50 on ebay. Not the greatest fitment, but it fits. I got tired of gloss black kidney grills that my car came with.

What do you all think?

I'll run with it for a while until I find something to replace it with. Today I saw red/orange M8 with this type of grill and it look good

Maybe if the top was "open" and not "closed" it might work.

I agree, I don't know why they designed it like that.

BMW did not put in solid grills cause the front end was weak. I wonder why you'd want to close off that air flow. I like the traditional look a lot better, personally.

I meant strength of the grill, not the bumper cover.
