I have an extreme attachment to my chrome kidney grills, let me say that first..... Josiah was kind enough to send me out some matte black kidneys to try out, but I have been sitting back looking at my car trying to figure out what I want to do.
Keep the kidneys chrome? Matte black? Black chrome? Gloss black? Paint the HE black? I really like it raw, but should I go with the murdered out look? My car is modded aggressively, so you can't really consider it a sleeper, what's the point in painting the HE black?
Opinions and points are well welcomed......
I think the chrome kidneys mesh well with the aluminum HE and the chrome lips on my Dinan wheels.....

For your car i would leave it alone it looks good with a little bit of chrome. But if you want to change it up go black chrome because your wheels are not painted and i think it would look out of place if you went murdered out up front. thats just my opinion its your car so i would go what your gut is telling you.
Everything hangs together well with a clean classy look, including the Dinan wheels that tie to BMW's sanctioned aftermarket history with this
platform. No need to go murdered. The IC makes all the statement needed.
