Kidney grilles: Anyone got anything different in terms of colour?

Right, so basically I was considering the idea of changing up my kidney grilles. Currently got the standard silver, seen a lot of pure black ones and a couple with M colours on them but I want something a bit different and was wondering if anyone had anything other than these options?

That's pretty cool. Was considering black slats, gold surround myself. Was also gonna get my roundels changed over to black and gold.

Any opinions?

Would be pretty cool I guess! It's something different. Post a picture when you've done it

If you need a set of OEM kidneys to play around with I have a set I'm getting ready to sell. I'll let them go cheap if you want to experiment. PM me if you're interested.

I tested that out when I got my gloss black performance grills. I really liked the look. The black surround really tones-down the chrome of the slats. It's a much better look than stock.

The wife liked the all-black so I'm going with the murdered-out look ATM.

I do like this style, subtle but refined.

Anyone got any big bold colours on show on theirs? Saw a E92 on another forum which had red surround with black slats which I thought looked pretty smart.
