Z4M kidney grilles (original)

Post by alexparker » Wed Aug 21, 2019 8:17 am

Hi all,

I recently bought a Z4M coupe from a forum member. I'm chuffed with the car, but I'd like to change the grilles back to the original style. The car currently has black kidney grilles with black surrounds, rather than chrome.

If anyone has some original grilles for sale, or knows of where I can buy some, I'd be interested.

Cheers,

Alex

Hi Alex,

Are you still looking for these? I have a 2006 E86 with original kidney grills, I'm assuming they would fit your car. If so, fancy a swap?

Thanks

Do you have a pic of your black ones? I might be up for a swap of my OEM ones

A 3.0si factory grills are not the same as fitted to an ///M.

You need from a 2.5si or lesser engine size. All 3.0i/si engined cars have silver/grey slats not black.

I've always wondered why BMW did that? :?

I really don't like the grey slats - luckily I managed to buy a pair of kidneys with black slats and chrome surrounds on here for my car! :D
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E90 330i as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.

On E46’s cyl models got chrome grils, so different logic applied.

On my E87 I have different tail lights because it has xenon headlights. BMW do some weird s**t :lol:
