I agree, the grills really look amazing.

One a side note, I've never seen those plates before. Are those the new armed forces plates in Europe? Or did you just order a Euro plate from Bimmian or the like?

Yeah those are AF Europe plates. I had them on my E90. Thought it looked better than that blank plate holder.

Cool, I haven't seen the new ones at all. I just remember completely different plates when I was growing up in Europe, they were super ugly and they stood out like a sore thumb.

Again, nice grills.

Garage List
The black grille looks good indeed with that red. I might have picked a lighter color, such as silver or white, if they had black grilles as option when I ordered my car. However, since it was all chrome I went with a dark exterior color to get a bit of contrast I don't think I'd like it on Mojave or another dark color.

There are clips on the inside. You could remove the bumper. I luckily have small enough hands to reach between the slats and pull up on the tabs to release them. If I remember right there are 8-9 clips on each side. If you look between you can see them.
