Options for a black LCI grille?

I know the LCI grilles have fewer slats, which I like, so I don't want to order an OEM M Performance grille. Does anyone know any aftermarket black grilles that are in the LCI style? Or any insight to whether BMW will update the M Performance ones?

I'm also keen to see if BMW will release the LCI version black grille. I think the wider spacing looks more aggressive.

I saw that ECS tuning had an aftermarket one with 11 slats.

Not yet, I have spoken to a few over seas manufacturers and they are still waiting to get the molds for the new ones.

I just installed the 12 slat ones on my car but will swap to the LCI ones as soon as I can as I agree with you it looks better.
