What are you?

A while back i traded some spacers for euro grilles and a euro plate filler.....or so he said. When i got the plate filler it isnt the same as the euro fillers i see on other cars on here.

What is this?
(not my car, just one i found on google with the same rear plate filler)

I personally think it'd look OK on a black car, but I'll agree on most other colors. White may be alright as well though....

i cant stand the american plate filler on any e30. the euro one just outlines the plate area and IMO finishes it off nicely. the american one is big and bulky and really makes the back look terrible.
