I think 540's have the plastic ducting & aluminum ducting. Check to see if there's a hole in your inner fender...towards the front of the wheel well....where the air would come in to cool the rotor.
If not...you may need to cut one....search "brake duct" & make sure you're looking at threads for your model.

If don't have any parts besides the grille ...you'll need:
at least no. 21 here (L&R)...don't know much else for your '97

I recommend grabbing the part no's & getting them from Tischer BMW
Cheers,
