Yes, the F3x didn't match....but that was stripes and diamond/rectangle/hexagon....without the front dashed line. Perhaps I should say too cluttered??

At least that's my first impression seeing them on a F30.

Thanks for posting.

EDIT: Strangely enough going to the G20 forums and looking at the pics again after looking at this, the diamonds in the top look much more subtle....and the stripes seem more solid. And the lower grills are darker than the kidneys which is a flip from the F3x.

I often thought about painting the lower sections black on my F30 but paint experts told me as the part was so plastic, rock chips would make a mess of it in short order.
