Grill Buffet

I went through 5 sets of grills in my journey for the perfect grill. The best fitting, highest quality one turned out to be the one recommended by another forum member here. If you want a gloss black grill, look no further and pick up the one I am about to link. I have gotten grills that fit absolutely piss poor or had wavy paint with scratches; i can't believe the crap they put on the market sometimes... and i am not just talking about eBAY either.

FOR GLOSS BLACK GRILL, JUST BUY THIS ONE.

* absolutely no relations to the seller, just making sure nobody went through the pain i did.

This badboy snapped right in and was in perfect condition. No scratches, no wavy paint, no BS.







And some other recent mods:

if you wanted a good fitting black one, why not just paint the OEM one?

From what i have read in other BMW forums, paint doesn't stick to chrome. I did try Plasti-Dip on them though, but they became very hard to keep clean as the surface is rough.

Here is my OEM one.

It's probably more the process than the paint itself. The grilles were sanded down and a solvent was used to remove all oils / waxes. The paint will stick if the surface is prepped properly.
