Looks good but I don't know if I'd pay a ton for it. How much are the grills?

Bumper mesh inserts came standard with the car, got the grilles on ebay for about $150 like marshotel said.... Used to have the titanium mesh that comes with the sport package but black grilles, once I changed them car looked so much better.

Got the titanium grill as well (pictured in sig). Left my mesh black since I felt it looked better on a black x5, but titanium mesh is still calling my name, someday...

Okay, I replced the grill and the upper bumper insert but I can't seem to figure out how to replace teh lower bumper insert. Has anyone done this? What do I have to do to get teh old one out and teh new one in?

No real opinion here, but I did see a grey X5 with black tint, grill, mirror covers, etc. That thing looked SWEET!!

Not a fan of grey on grey.

Just went to titanium grill on our (new to us) CPO X5. It is Sapphire Black Metallic so I think the titianium grill looks nice in contrast. Let me know if anyone is looking for the oem kidneys with black finish with chrome on the outside. Also just added weathertech all weather mats for all three rows.
