I think I'm alone in this but....

I blacked out the grills on my e36 as well.. and to be honest, I don't like it too much. My car is black to begin with.. and it seems to take away from the "BMW". It blends in almost too much. (I have e46 grills on my car)...

I'm experimenting with the idea of re-chroming the outer lip.. and putting bullethole mesh in the middle painted black... I've tried it all though. Chrome |||| inside, and black outer ring.. all chromed... all blacked out.. X-mesh in the middle... 97+ E36 grills... and E46 grills which I like best. (although you can see the fan behind the grill more, which is kinda ugly when you look dead-on.) My other idea has been to gunmetal chrome it.. so it's not so bling-bling.. but still obviously a BMW. I dunno... any ideas?

I opted not to do the rings aroudn the lights cuz it makes them look smaller.
