Question about e92 grill, seatbelt arm, and chip

Hi guys,

Just brought myself a black bmw e92 coupe on a 60 plate. Basically
I just want to do a few things to it I have already put some black CSL alloys on there they set it off nice! I want the kidney grills to be gloss black. I have looked on eBay and there 60 - 80 pound. The dilemma I'm in is I either get them painted gloss black at a paint shop, or get them wrapped gloss black? Does anybody know if the chrome part of the grill comes off separate? I will also be getting the boot lip off eBay there is one for 20.. There are some on there for 60+ what is the difference?

Also my seatbelt arm don't seem to catch the belt, I have tried to iron the belt and that don't work?

Finally what do people think about the tuning diesel chips any good or not? There on eBay for around 100 just wondering if it's worth it?

Would appreciate it if someone could help me please !

congrats on the bimmer, your best advice is stay away from eBay. your driving a BMW not a Honda you get what you pay for if u want black kidney grills then either buy them from a repeatable seller or sand them down and paint it your self any bmw dealer will carry them, and the chrome part does come apart but i dont advise you do it as there are crappy plastic clips that usually break. if ur seat belt arm doesn't catch replace the seat belt that's the only fix and if you want to chip your car have it installed by a tune shop and never get something that controls your computer off eBay

Nice one mate, thanks for the reply. I may just take it to a professional place called midland car care in Birmingham they said they can wrap the chrome part for 20 I don't mind that .. Thanks for the advice !!!!
