Xline is chrome. Shadowline (M sport) is glossy black. However, that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the grill color.

Interesting. We just picked up our x3 28 2 days ago and our grill is flat black. Looks great. Also took a factory tour and all 28i I saw in the line had black grilles.

Are you sure they were looking at:
  1. 28i
  2. your car?

I have the sports activity package and mine is black. Like I said, I picked it up from the factory. All x28 or x20 euro models I saw on the line had black grilles.

I'm sure the dealer can change them in a snap, literally.

This is my first posting. I just bought an x3 2.8 as well and would prefer chrome grill. Can't we just order the chrome grill as a replacement part?

im sure you could, and swap it. the dealer might do it upon delivery for free. or you could do it yourself. it will cost about $300 usd.

Sure someone is saying that about the silver grill. See if you can trade with someone?

I want to trade but haven't figured out how we would do it-we'd have to go grill-less for a week or so???
