Colored Kidney or Shadowline

So I got bored today and decided to see what my grills would look like if they were white. Below is the outcome. Keep in mind this was a quick spray paint job only to get an idea. I kinda like both looks. What do you guys think?

The AW outter looks alot better.. seen many on e92s... you should do it.. i think someone did it already on the 135i and if I had a AW that'd be something i'd go for..

I think I am going to get a set in white. The grills swap out so easily i can switch from black to white on a whim. Time to contact Dan the man.

Def like the white a lot more. It gives the grill a neat "recessed" look.

Painted are good. Dark chrome is even better. Have them on the E39, now if only someone would make it for the 1... !

Take a look at our gallery. Look under project cars. The 135i has shadowline, the 335i has the colored. Both cars are AW.

Mirror is folded in so people driving by don't take it off.
