Anyone want to swap.......

I have a new 2012 X5. I now have 3,000 miles on it. I want to know if someone wants to swap grills with me. I have the titanium/silver colored grill inserts with the chrome surround. I want the black inserts with the chrome surround. If someone is willing to swap, let me know. Mine are in NEW condition and I will swap for grills in the same condition. I will not accept grills with broken clips as I will not be sending you grills with broken clips. I have enclosed some pictures. I think the white X5 looks better with the black grills.

I removed mine from the chrome outer piece and spray painted the grilles with automotive paint. They look fantastic and have held up fine for over a year and a half now. I have less than $10 into the job. Very easy fix, and it only takes a few hours for the paint to dry- just spray them with multiple light coats for a professional job.

I would have switched with you, but my car is at the body shop and needs at least one of grills ordered because it's broken

I think it is Chrome edge and black grill for 35i, and silver for 35d and 50i?
Not 100% sure.. I got the chrome edges and black grill on my 35i.

That would help if you could provide a us address. Are yours the black with chrome surround? Can you provide pictures? If we do the swap, I would like to do next day air.

I could just paint them and leave the frame original.
