I dont want to post a poll. Here goes.

I bought matte black kidney grills from Stealth Auto (Great service)

Should I paint the whole thing inside and out or leave the center matte and paint only the outter rings.

If so, should I go gloss black, or black sapphire; the color of the car?

I am thinking gloss black outter rings and leaving the center matte black.

Thanks,:cheers:

Damn!:grrrr:

Cos, I just left my second set of grilles with my body shop to paint exactly like Kenny mentioned. Currently I painted the original grilles all Black Sapphire which looks sharp!:M5thumbs:

However, I am trying the second option, because I think that would create that subtle contrast that would make it DIFFERENT from everyone else!ouich

I am also having the ambers smoked and the gills blacked out (all black sapphire).

Your car will look sweet either way. Since you are in San Diego, I won't worry of going to the dance with the same dress on!
:cheers:

Chris Laidback is takeing care for me. Much appreciated, Chris. I order from stealthauto, then Chris picked them up today and drop off at C&C and should be ready this sat at bimmerfest. Front&Side, I guess it will be all gross black instead of center matte black which is very creative idea, BTW.
