Updated kidney grills for 1ers! (newer style BMWs)

Hey guys, I haven't seen these before and already had some OEM black ones on the way but I couldn't pass these up. Its the newer grill style and I think they look much more aggressive and updated.

If this has been seen/posted before then disregard.

Not too sure if those are the ones my dad got for his 135 but they are identical. The ones he got were cheap and you can pretty much pull them out of the car when they are installed. But i could be wrong! If one of yall bought a pair of them and they are decent lemme know

Ive seen one person install them so far. Clean WHP from the forums and his YT channel. He seems to approve so i doubt these are the same quality as your fathers.

His Video:

I like how mine are simply because it’s easier for me to clean. But those do look nice.

Fitment was surpricingly great for a chinese quality. It clicked just nicelly into original holes. But you need be still carefull because OEM grill have durable metalic parts and this is fully plastic only.

And the front lip is from Rieger Germany. Cost me about 150 - 160€. I Don't know where Americans can buy Rieger stuffs. Try to look on Shmiedmann websites or... ehhh.. Ebay. But in quicksearch I found that schmiedmann maybe sells that in us.
Link 1 for non-painted HERE
Link 2 for Gloss Black HERE

(added picture with riegers car so you can see its shapes)

The first link, for $39, are exactly the same.

Note that they aren't prime, and shipping time is not prompt- not shipping from in the US, and that there are no reviews left.

The matte look to be the same, but I'm not sure.

I am still waiting on my grills from mad hornets- neglected to click the check box that forces the order from US available stock, so mine are on a boat from China.... I have a US tracking number, but it's still "on it's way to a USPS facility"

Yeah
Coulda just paid $40 from amazon...
