So really happy with my new toys, new grills look classy (despite my filthy car :oops: ) and seem to fit better than the originals :o can’t beleive the difference the ZHP knob has made, feels amazing and no rattles - happy boy, thanks to my lovely wife :D

I didn’t mind the chrome, just the black looked a bit faded, so as I was changing anyway.....why not. :wink:

Very nice Smelf, I think dark cars suit the dark grills.

Well the grilles have sparked some debate! :lol:

But I think we're all agreed on the ZHP being a huge improvement.

Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E91 325i as a DD.
