So i started with some minor exterior changes; got some black grills just like every other car i own. Dinan MAF to be installed after it comes back from full tuneup at Bimmersport. After 2 weeks of driving it, gotta say this is one of the most enjoyable BMW's i have owned!

Gotta say on the red the chrome looks better imo... the black does'nt look right like it was some kind of el cheapo body shop repair... If it was white or black then the black grills would look better but that's just my feeling... maybe if you could keep the chrome trim rings with the black fins from the black grills now that would pop.

Winter hotness; Imola red 4.6is X5

Yup. That's why I put chrome outer surrounds and black slats on my Imola Red E39. The all-black didn't look right for some reason, but the all-chrome looked tacky.

Thanks guys!

IMO the chrome does not fit in well...ALL the other moldings and trim are black (even grill on top of hood), so it had to go!

Yup, just like the black trim everywhere on the E39, lol. Here's what some of us meant:



I definitely think gloss black would look far better, the matte kind of leaves it looking cheap and unfinished against all that bright red.

Oh I know what you mean, but still not feeling it! IF I could get high gloss would be better, but had no choice, unless I clear coat it, and I have no patience for that! lol

Honestly, at the end of the day, it doesn't even make a difference because it's a freakin' minty fresh Imola red 4.6 iS!
