New M5 Owner here and my first thread. I just installed my new Matte Black Grille set on my Jet Black 2001 M5. I do like them better than the original chrome style, but I'm wondering if I should have gone with the Gloss Black set.

I got them from ECS Tuning
BMW E39 M5 S62 5.0L Exterior Body Grille - BM01-3901-B - ECS blackout Grille Set - Matte Black - ES#1892431

I'll try to post some before and after photos here.

Before:

Opinions on the Matte or should I have gone with the Gloss?

And I know the headlights need to be done to get rid of the haze. It is on my ToDo list :smile

Sorry for the quality of the photos, they were taken with my phone.

I'll post more photos as I take them.

I'm actually a fan of the chrome (white), but if you want the black, then the gloss would be a nice match up to the surrounding paint.
