Black Kidney Grilles ???
My beast is in the shop right now getting some hail damage fixed (about 25 small dents and getting front bumper/hood repainted for good measure), so while it's under the knife, I've decided to do a couple modifications:
#1 - I'm painting the rear diffuser area a flat black color to set it off from the rest of the car (had the same look on my previous G35 coupe and loved it)
#2 - I'm going to go with the black kidney grilles - two ways of going about this: 1) purchase the complete replacement grilles (ie Bimmian) or 2) purchase the grille covers (ie BavAuto/Hamman) - I like this look better because it keeps the ****s a shiny color that contrasts the black instead of all flat like the complete replacement... however, has anyone tried these? they told me at BavAuto that they stick on with 3M tape, how durable is this going to be and how is the final product going to look?
If anyone can post pics of what the complete replacement grilles look like vs the grille covers, I would greatly appreciate it!
On a side note, I've seen pics on the board of stock wheels painted black with silver/polished lips... but does anyone have a picture of them (or any black face/polished lip wheel for that matter) on a Ti Si beast? Thanks again!
