Black Grill 550?

Can you order the car with the black grill?
If so how?, I didn't see it on the options list

I don't think so buddy. It is a genuine BMW aftermarket part. You may be able to bargain it in the final deal. Usually $130 for part and ~$40 for labor. I am assuming you are talking about the all black BMW "performance grille".

If you are handy at doing things I would rather get the black out grills and install it yourself. There are a ton of youtube videos on 'How tos' that will walk you through it.

OMG, 40 labor? I switched out my grills, I think it took at least 3 minutes. It's called pull out and push the new ones in.

I have an excellent set of the BMW performance grills if you are interested. I traded in my 2011 550ix and pulled them beforehand. Pm if you are interested.

And yes, they take 3 minutes to install....
