WANTED - E70 Kidney Grills
« on: October 12, 2017, 12:18:19 AM »
Evening,

I am after a set of E70 kidney grills, I don't mind if standard/black/titanium etc. as long as they are in good cosmetic condition (i.e free from damage, broken clips) for a colour coding upgrade I am considering. I can't justify buying a new set of grills to then pull them apart, prime/paint them etc. So wondered if anyone had replaced their own either from stock or back to stock and had a set??

Cheers

I have a set from my 35dse, they were Titanium and I sprayed them black but decided I didn't like them. I bought a set of M Sport ones which have chrome surrounds and black slats, much prefer those.

Are the SE ones any good to you?

 Here’s the link

In all fairness, non OEMs are of poor quality (what a salesman)
There is a distinct quality difference between the two, I’d favour spending the monies on OEM, allbeit bmw don’t make them they do have better qaqc on the end product
