M coloured grille, yay or nay?

Postby rickyh147 » Mon Aug 03, 2015 6:12 pm

Right so I've just got my gloss black grilles, and I have the stickers for the slats in the M colours. The wider type that wrap the whole slat not just the thin strips for the outer edge.

Question is.. Do I or don't I? Originally liked the idea, now I'm not sure. Is it tacky or does it look alright?

Seems everyone around my area has it done :?

Yay or nay?

I hope that photos has been reversed, as it goes sky blue to red not the other way around.

Well this seems to be a more nay than yay situation, which is kinda where I was headed anyway. Might keep the stickers and try it in the future as like Darren said I can just take them off again if I didn't like it :) thanks guys!

See there'll always be people for and against stuff like this. I'm not dead against having M stuff on my car even if it's not an M3, so long as like you say you aren't trying to imitate an M3 or whatever. I think I'll start off without the coloured slats and maybe add them on as a test in a few weeks.

yeah definitley mate and at the end of the day its your car ... I think there is a big difference between having a 316 compact and putting an m3 badge on the back with a pair of beans cans on the back trying to imitate the sound with some nasty seat covers + general rude boy styling ... In my mind as my car is an m sport having an m sport grill is no different to having the factory m sport badges on my wheels. My grill also ties in with my headlights as the backs are black.

I think on your car mate it will look really nice :D

The pin strip on the leading edge looks good but not keen on the whole fin

Personally not a fan, prefer a cleaner less colour look myself ! But if you like it then get one bought ! Individuality is better than following a crowd ;)
Sold my 330ci because i fell out of love with it ..... bought another 330ci :lol:

I liked them when I first saw them, but after seeing hundreds of otherwise standard BMWs with them on, I'm not a fan. Its the equivalent of neon washer jets for 2015!
