If you want to know how matte black looks without purchasing try Plasti Dip, and then make the choice. A can will run you like $7, and you can do it in less than an hour. If you don't like it, peel it off, and order the BMWP high gloss.

What bumper is it, Kerscher or Rieger? Looks great on the Alpine White, I've been thinking about adding this bumper

Also, I plasti-dipped my kidneys and I like the matte look. I also have matte black emblem overlays and plasti-dipped my diffuser as well to tie it all together. I would go this route first before purchasing the BMWP kidneys, because like J-Rod said you can just peel it off if you don't like it.

If between those two, matte black is the shizzle.

looks like a kerscher/DTM one.... the reiger one has a more exaggerated lower portion of the bumper.

I sometimes have a wish to slap that on the 128i, but would go with fog lights added and debate if the front s too powerful for the non M body.

I think we wash in the same car wash, or very similar. Does that one have a Petro and a Handwash service?

No this ones just coin up its self why don't you do the 135 front end? If you think this one might be to much for the 128
