Mein Auto: Will drive Z4 2.5i
Z4 Grills and Headlights

My dad is buying me a 2.5 Z4. I really like the silver grills of the 3.0 and the silver background to the headlights in the 3.0 also. How much do you think it would cost to replace the ones I have with the ones I want, after market? Im guessing for the grills $150 for both....am I wrong? I am clueless with the headlights.
The pictures below show my exact situation.


What I will have:

why not OEM?

Give your local BMW dealer and see what they charge for the original 3.0 grills. The car is still relatively new and as such, I'd highly doubt there's currently any aftermarket grills for the car yet. Maybe you can even try a local trusted autobody shop to get a quote to see what'd it cost to paint it the same color as the 3.0's.

Not sure about the headlights though, however I'd imagine you'd easily pay $300+ for each side.

Good luck and congrats on your soon to be new car!

I really hope that the Z4 doesn't end up looking like his Z3

I think he's incapable of keeping his hands off of a car. I do think the grille and airdam came out looking good.
