I have an 08 6 series.
There are no grilles. The only option is to DIY.

Hey Tbal what do you think? Those look like they have tobe at least 6 inches in the back. That lip is huge! BTW Tbal where are the pics of your car from the rear- the one of you washing the lip. Ca't find them!

Are you sure this is a '08 650i ? I see the amber reflectors in those headlights ?

Close up on the wheels plz... they look like ADVAN Race edition.

Sunny, I think you need 10mm spacers all around for your car, it will look better since I see from ur Sig that the upper part of the rim tends to dip inside the fenders by an inch or so. at least try them
