Features and Benefits Of This Product
Our grilles are made from high quality ABS plastic and are custom tailored to fit your vehicle. These grilles have never been chromed but are matte black directly from factory.
BEWARE OF IMITATIONS: Many factories in China have attempted to copy our excellent quality grilles and they sell them for significantly less, but have problems like improper clipping mechanisms (leading to loosely fitting grilles), or clips that break, not to mention a plain plastic unpainted finish. All our grilles are painted in a chip resistant matte black finish for the top quality look you expect on your top quality car.
These grilles come in are two pieces. They are not grille "covers", they completely replace your existing grilles.
Optionally, we stock grilles for certain models which have their surrounds are pre-painted in the exact color of your vehicle by a CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL REFINISHER using OEM paint, they blend in perfectly with your vehicles finish.
To ensure quality of our optional body colored painted grilles, each body-colored grille set is painted with two coats of OEM paint and two coats of clear for maximum brilliance and color matching. Our paints are combined with adhesive promoters and chip resisting agents to prolong the life and look of your grille. (Body-colored grilles have outer surrounding painted only).
These grilles have never been chromed, assuring the best possible paint adhesion (Chrome that has been painted over will chip and peel over time and due to stone chips).
Our carbon fiber grilles have had their surrounds (outer ring) hand laid with carbon fiber, then clearcoated for protection. An excellently created one-piece design for the surround, and looks very natural compared to overlays.

Notes / Warnings
Please note that due to the curvature of the grille, it is very difficult to wrap these surrounds with carbon fiber. While there are not seams, tears, blotches, folds, bumps, gaps or twisting of the carbon material on these grilles (as we have seen with other carbon grilles), there is an unavoidable change in pattern density in the carbon in the corners of these grilles. Returns are not available for this reason.
Please check your local laws for ensure legality when using this product on public roads and highways. In areas where this product is not legal for road use it is sold strictly for off-road, track or show use only.

Perfect fit and exceptional quality ! So glad i ordered these from Bimmian and did not opt for cheap knock-offs. I have seen others before and the superior quality of Bimmians grilles was apparent as soon as i opened the package...I would definitely recommend this product to anyone considering new kidney grilles.(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY| Posted by Heather | (Eastport, NY)
I love these matte black kidney grills on my sapphire black 3 series bimmer!! They look a million times better than the standard chrome grills. Makes you wonder why they do not have this option already on the car.(4)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY| Posted by Christian | (NEUILLY Sur SEINE, )

The OEM Kidney Grilles are composed of two separate parts (outer surrounds and inner slats) that clip together. Will your outer surrounds clip with my OEM inner slats and vice-versa?
It is possible to interchange OEM with our product.
Do these grills only come in matte black? or can they be ordered in gloss black?
This would only be offered in Matte black for the E85/E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
The photo displaying the M3 side grille, does not have the M3 logo in it. Does that need to be purchased separately? Also which style front grille would I need to select for a 2006 M3 convertible. The descriptions do not include convertibles or 2006 M3.
Unfortunately, we do not include the M logo for the side grilles. Sorry for the inconvenience. The front grill for the coupe and the cabriolet are the same. If you purchase the coupe grill that is listed for \"Coupe 2000-2003 and M3\", it will fit your cabriolet perfectly.
I would like to buy a painted shadow grille. If I order a Sapphire Black grille, will the entire grille be painted in sapphire (both surrounds and slats)?
All of our Custom Painted grilles have Matte Black Slats and body matched painted surrounds.
