The edge that is chrome on the stock grills.
Anything similar available on our 1ers?
I'm personally not really liking the black kidney grills on alpine whites which is the color that my car is.

Here is an example in space grey:

Same. I was 2 days late in trying to order from WSTO. If they look good, JSW gets my business.
