Shadowline Grill on Titanium Silver?

I've got a TSM 135 with the Shadowline trim and I'm thinking of getting the BMW Perf grills but I have yet to find a pic of one in my color. Anyone have pics of theirs?

havent seen it but it would look good I think. first time I've seen titanium silver referred to as TSM, that's kind of refreshing compared to TiAg

Sorry, not familiar with the jargon yet. Just picked up my car 10 days ago. All the other colors are acronyms of the full name, I guess the silver one is special and gets to be named via the periodic table. TSM just made sense.

Great thanks. I think I'm sold on the black grills.

Now to see about some painted mudflaps.

I think it's a go to match the rest of the shadowline on the car. We are local to you if you need a set. I'd skip the mudflaps though.

The mud flaps are a taste thing, you either like them or hate them, but they're also functional.

My last car was a Blue WRX and I had 17's on it with 225's. They stuck out a little bit and after years of driving the lower body panels had turned white from all the paint chips caused by our filthy gravel stricken highways and roads in the bay area.

I'd like to avoid that with this car. It's either mud flaps or clear bra. Mud flaps are $50, clear bra is ??

Can you get the BMW OEM black ones? I'd like the glossy to match the trim, not the matte.

Agreed--mudflaps are a taste thing and functional...

...but I'd leave 'em unpainted.

They're the "sacrificial lambs" to protect your paintjob, so why make 'em look bad if (or better yet, when) they get chipped or scraped if they're painted, is my rationale
