Quick question about grilles

Hey all,

So here's my small dilemma, I'm wanting to buy some more front grilles for my E87 and paint them gloss black, however I have noticed that they are pre-lci and lci specific.

Now, my car is a pre-lci non m sport, but I will be buying a m sport front bumper some time. If I bought the pre lci grilles now, would I have to make sure I buy a pre lci front bumper, or are the grilles non m and m sport specific also?

Not sure if all that makes sense.. But basically what I'm asking is will I have to wait till I get the bumper, or can I buy the grilles now and get a pre lci M sport bumper later?

Thanks in advance

You've been informed wrong. No difference in front grilles.
I own pre-LCI e87 120d, I installed M sport front bumper but used the same grilles. I got them wrapped with glossy black vinyls and installed on the new bumper, it's a %100 fit.

pre lci and m sport bumpers share the same grills

post lci bumper (non-m sport ONLY) shares grills with the E82 (all generations)

look at the number of clips on the pictures to verify.
