Our gloss black paint is the same color as the front performance grilles. BMW 668.

Hi Nate,
I sent a request for the 1M Cosmetic Package through the website. Just wanted to know if the side grills in gloss black and no tint are available to order in the cosmetic package.
Thanks.

Just installed mine today, very happy with the results.

Just a few things I would like to point out for the install.

The removal of the sides grills is easier than I anticipated.

The paint on the new ones was still soft when I received them so careful on how you handle them, especially the edges.

I suggest you scrape the paint on the holding tabs, if not you will have to apply too much force to snap them back in and risk damaging the paint.

How many coats of paint are on these? I live in climate with hot summers and cold winters so hopefully these stand up to the elements.

They look good, has anyone got pictures of them on a black car, I'm wondering if the seal stands out as grey compared to the black wing/side grille?
