Titanium/Silver/Chrome Grille? Is there a difference?

Just took receipt of my new x5. I went with the 35i not the 50i. One thing I really liked about the 50i was the color of the grille, mine is black. The dealership said they could order a "chrome" grille but online it shows the color of the 50i grille as titanium? Anyone made this mod? What is the correct color and where can you get it online?

Thanks.

wow never even noticed that, so there are subtle differences between the 35i and 50i besides exhaust.

hmm...not as striking as I thought, must look at the grille again.

They are all plastic, but the name of the one you want is "titanium." I'm sure the dealer was referring to the titanium grille, as found on the 50i and 35d, when they said "chrome." Search around here (parts for sale), Xoutpost.com, etc as some folks swap their titanium grille for the gloss black performance grille.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Just found some for $200 on ebay. I just couldn't go the spray paint route on a $60k car. Now on my 1978 280Z, not a problem.

Thanks again!

$200...man, that's a lot. I just replaced my 35d with glossy black and would have sold it for half that.
