Opinions and pics - blacked out front grill on Jet Black

I went through all the threads and got a couple of samples, but I wanted to get some more feedback and pictures if possible.

Blacked out front grilles on a Jet Black 328i sedan?

Gloss or matte?

On the one hand the chrome ones do give some contrast, and the black grilles look awesome on Alpine White. On black they kinda "get lost", but it does give the whole front a stealthy looks. Looking for pics and opinions!

The clouds came in faster than expected, so the lighting wasn't that great. But the gloss black is the way to go. Matte black looks like it's just primer painted.

I think the side view really shows the "cool" factor of the black.




Good Luck, hope this helps.

Awesome pics! Thanks for posting. I am torn. I am leaning toward leaving them chrome. But the glossy black looks awesome!

Nice wheels BTW!
