Thread: Gloss black kidney grill

    Gloss black kidney grill

    Where are you guys getting the kidney grills in gloss black for a 2005 coupe, been searching and nothing. The one I found on Amazon fits like crap and.i don't want to try the eBay ones. I have done a search and it looks like there isn't anything good available.

    Ditto here. My Gloss grills for my sedan sucks. Loose is the word. Looking for a "appropriate" replacement.

    Well, in that case I'm going to paint the original ones as I did when I use to have an old e46 m3 and it held up pretty good as I did prep it. Thanks

    I had the ones ecstuning used to sell , the fitment were perfect . They stop selling the gloss black ones and carbon fiber looking ones too. I purchased a set from Amazon n they were horrible . Fitment were super loose and they were easily breakable.

    Yeah do that. I think I bought the last OE BMW performance grill for a facelift coupe like 4 years ago.

    Painting is probably your best bet. 4 years ago I couldn't find any except for a set on Amazon. Luckily they're great.

    That's the route but im looking a way to dechrome the grill first. Have watched some videos so ill give it a try. I already have 2 stage black paint to do the job.
