Mein Auto: 328i
Smile Grill Protector from Insects

Hi All ... I have a new 328i and want to either get a car bra or some sort of protector for bugs into the grill etc. I can't find anything apart from the car bras ... Any suggestions ?

i prefer the metal screen becasue it can be shaped somewhat to stay away from the heat exchanger, ie i think its best not to hug the surface.

Grill bug screen

Stuff one of your wife or girlfriend's old pantyhose behind the grill. Hold it in place with two rolls of duct tape.
