MSport vs Luxury Line Kidney Grilles?

I know that the MSport has shadowline exterior trim. What does this mean? Is there a difference in the kidney grilles on the MSport models compared to the Luxury Line? When I look at them on bmwusa.com I don't see much difference if any. Thanks.

Shadowline exterior is the darkening of the chrome trim around the windows, however, that does not include the grill. Here is a pic of my shadowine and black grill I put on recently.

In a black car, the black grille is a must. Looks awesomely mean and sinister.
