Need opinion - M Performance Grille on Luxury line

I was a bit skeptical on getting the M Performance grille on my Luxury line since it wouldn't go well with all the chrome accents on the bumper and with the stock silver wheels.

My F30 now has a new set of 17" black star spoke rims for winter and it does look a bit sportier with these rims on. Do you think I can sport the black M performance grille like this? I'm also considering getting the colour matched painted reflectors too since one of mine are damaged from someone hitting me in the parking lot some time ago.

Why not try the Sport Line OEM grille? It is still wrapped in chrome, but with wider gap in between, lesser slant(?) might work! And you can get them cheaply from the Sport trim guys, or even buying from the dealer will cost slightly lesser $$$ than the M-performance one, when they are actually identical minus the chrome trim

Smile Your rims inspired my F31's enhanced look?

Hi I took delivery of a new F31 (Glacier Silver) 4 weeks ago. My last 2 cars (Mini's)had black rims, and these did not appear to be a general option here in the UK unless you were looking for M sport wheels. I was really pleased to find your thread particulary as the your winter wheels matched my rims! I had them refurbished in a gloss black last week;and I feel very happy with the result. Your M performance grille looks great by the way..... will upload soon a couple of pics before and after
