honestly, i don't think the black grille looks as good on an e30 as it does on an e36/46

the e30s deserve the classic chrome grill look

i would reccomend a DIY....pretty sure theres a writeup here on maX somewhere....search it

Paint them black.....or I can make you a set in 5mins and charge you $100 if you really want to buy one.


It looks good on some cars and doesn't on others.
It depends on the look you have going, if you have smoked headlights, tints...etc. you can pull off the black grill, much like Qimis.

I don't Just looks way too thrown together, and the wheel/tire combo blows ass. Looks like he is running 185's in the back on that picture.

To be more specific to the topic at hand though, I think spray painted black kidneys look horrid. Do not do it.

If quimis' car had mTech 2 sides and a more manly tire in the back, it would be a lot better IMO. But it's not my car, so I don't have much say anyway.

Indeed.

Also being 1 shade of white, and having wheels even or slightly inside the fenders would help.

Color matched or chrome is what I like now, I just don't want to buy a new one and dont have any body color paint left right now so mine stays black.

Black only looks cool for a bit then you get sick of it.
