Matte Black Front Grills?

Where to buy? Only place I've found them is bimmian and they are over priced and out of stock.

Thanks!

There are a few on eBay and reasonably priced or you could just vinyl wrap the one you have on!

Don't bother with wrapping them - just pull them out and Plasti-dip them

$5 can and 30 min of work - and if you don't like it, peel it off

Is plastidip a brand of a paint?

Thanks!

yes go to lowes buy a can spray a bunch of light coats,, its matte black and you can literally peel it off when your over it and stick paint will be fine underneath.. type in plastidip on you tube


more coats easier it is to peel after... prep well and take your time

Plastidip.

http://squarespokes.com/forums/showt...ti-Dip-Removal

Personally, I think anything "plastidip" looks cheap. Plastidip has it's followers and fierce critics. Kinda like chrome. I would never plastidip or chrome anything on the BMW. But some don't mind it. At least plastidip is easy to use and more importantly, remove.

Have fun though. And post up detailed pics if you do it. The guy from Singapore that did it to his grilles posted pictures so small, they may as well have been thumbnails.
