I will but not for 10 days or so. Mine is off to the detailers on Friday and when it comes back I will be fitting the OEM black grilles which I have just bought.

I bought genuine ones straight from BMW after I tried 2 or 3 sets of the knock-off eBay ones. They don't fit because the clips are the wrong shape and no amount of effort will get them to fit properly. Save the hassle and get genuine ones.

For info - £10.49 for paint. I'm very critical about DIY stuff I do but you would honestly think these were oem.
