Matte Black Grills Installed!

I just installed the **********s matte black grills and i love them!
Theyre high quality matte black plastic with a little bit of a sheen to them. they absorb more light than the shadowline kidneys so they're more easily noticable too.
fitment was perfect and once i got the OEM chrome grills out (talk about a pain in the ass) the new ones snaped right into place with ease.
**********s was great and shipping was fast as shit, i got the grills within 4 days

Now for the pics!

Looks good! I like the painted outer on Alpine White, we did this for a few E92s and it came out well.
